San Francisco: Places to go, people to see

The Cocktail Monkeys, a Bay Area dance-party band featuring the dynamic Renee on lead vocals, screamin’ Mark St. John on guitar, explosive Bobby A. C. on bass and rock steady Will Diamond on drums, appears in concert. The group, named after those little plastic monkeys found hanging from the rim of cocktail glasses, specializes in recognizable and danceable rock, Motown, pop and disco. The show is at 8 p.m. Friday at the Little Fox, 2215 Broadway, Redwood City. Tickets are $12 to $14.
