San Francisco: Places to go, people to see

Tonight, the North Beach Jazz Festival hosts Latin Jazz Night at venues in the 1300 block of Grant Avenue.

Appearing at Mojito is San Francisco family favorite Salvador Santana. (Yes, the keyboardist-composer is Carlos’ son.) The Grant & Green will feature Austin, Texas, indie-latin-funk group Maneja Beto. At Royale, it’s the traditional Colombian rhythms of La Collectiva. Django Reinhardt clone Stephane Wrembel plays a happy-hour set at Mojito from 6 to 9 p.m.

There’s a $10 wristband charge for entrance to all shows, which start at 9 p.m. For tickets, visit www.sunsettickets.com or call (415) 256-8499. For the full schedule — events continue through Sunday — visit www.nbjazzfest.com.

ELECTRONIC DANCE FEVER

Dutch-born DJ Tiesto brings his “Elements of Life” tour to San Francisco. Released in April, “Elements of Life” hit the Billboard charts at No. 1 for electronic album and No. 72 on the top 200. His live show features more than a dozen top electronic dance acts performing on three stages. It starts at 9 p.m. Saturday (and goes until 3 a.m. Sunday) at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium, 99 Grove St., San Francisco. Tickets are $45 to $65.

Call (415) 421-TIXS or visit www.skillsdj.com.

DOG HOUSE

The “Miss American Fido Show,” an open-mike competition spoofing “American Idol,” returns. Performers have three to four minutes to give their worst performance, to convince the audience that they deserve the title of “Worst Act of the Month.” The show is at 8 p.m. today at the Dark Room Theater, 2263 Mission St., San Francisco. Tickets are $10 for audience members and free for performers.

Call (415) 675-9963 or visit www.darkroomsf.com.
