BISS List 7.20.22: AXIAL TILT + BISS Comedy Night + Best of BISS this Week

Buckle UP BISS Listers! This is gonna be a long one. Thank you in advance for indulging me again this week but my birthday is coming and I want you to know ALL the plans for the next month so that I get to celebrate with all of you somewhere! Of course there are PLENTY of shows on the calendar beyond this short list.

My Birthday Month in Review

This coming Saturday, 7/23 @ 2pm, we kick off my birthday month+ with a block party at Love on Haight featuring MOONALICE for FREE!. Bring the whole family! Rocking Music ~ BookSignings ~ Live Painting ~Face Painting ~ BBQs ~ Bubbles ~ Dancing & TIE DYE! Then Saturday night, VICTOR LITTLE’S BIG HIT is playing from ARETHA to CHAKA and IN-BETWEEN featuring MONET (Vocalist for Boz Scaggs) at The Boom Boom Room.

Sunday, 7/24, the BISS crew are gonna laugh it up together at Cobb’s Comedy Club with Sergio Nova: Who’s That? Email biss@bisslist.com to request free tickets and join us!

I will admit that I am a little bit jealous of those of you who have tickets to one of the four shows at Yoshi’s on 7/25 and 26 for Les Claypool’s Bastard Jazz featuring Stanton Moore, Mike Dillon, & Skerik. However, in light of the fact that I will be missing it due to my best friend taking me to Puerto Vallarta to celebrate my 50th, I will get over that…

Next weekend, Paper Moon Presents is back at The Bruns Amphitheater in Orinda with THREE shows!  July 29th is Lyrics Born, Destani Wolf, Audiopharmacy. July 30th is Brett Dennen, Megan Jacobs. July 31st is a whole day of Strings & Things ft Sam Bush, AJ Lee & Blue Summit, Tony Furtado, Nat Keefe & Eric Yates (of Hot Buttered Rum), and More! There is even a BISS section so the whole crew can sit together (select the BISS section and use code BISS2022)!!

8/12-8/14 : My 50th Birthday PRE-PARTY @ For The Funk of It(@Concow Campground). This year’s lineup features:  Orgone, Lyrics Born, Sals Greenhouse, Grease Traps, Grateful Brass, Maxwell Friedman Group, Object Heavy, The Exchange, Hop Sauce, Smokey the Groove, North Ave Roots Band, Jenes N The Juice, Lantz Lazwell and the Vibe Tribe, Hornmageddon, Litty Debungus, Fourth Position, Samaria Quartet, Sounds Good, Free Range Funk.

8/20 : My 50th Birthday Party in SF is taking place at the Boom Boom Room on August 20th. The lineup is coming together nicely. For now I will just say, Ronkat is confirmed. DJ Logic is confirmed. And I am working with Jordan Feinstein to reach out to some amazing players for the late night Super Jam! Tickets will be available shortly. (yes, we gotta pay the bands)


8/26 – 8/28 : My 50th Birthday AFTER-PARTY @ Widespread Panic. We have tickets for WSP on both Friday and Saturday. We have rooms up there in Napa on Friday and Saturday. We also have tickets for the late nights at Blue Note Napa on both nights. Friday is: OG Garage A Trois: Charlie Hunter, Skerik & Stanton Moore at Blue Note Napa on Friday. Saturday is Eddie Roberts’ Rare Sounds (feat. members of the New Mastersounds & the Greyboy Allstars) plus The Nth Power. Party plans throughout the weekend are still in the works (as is all the Sunday plan)!

After that, I think I’ll need a nap…
