San Francisco: Places to go, people to see

Hundred of musicians perform in the 40th Anniversary Summer of Love Free Concert, an all-day celebration of the world-resounding explosion of counterculture that took place in San Francisco in 1967.

Mayor Gavin Newsom has proclaimed Sunday “Summer of Love Anniversary Day.” Among the more anticipated acts scheduled to play are Country Joe McDonald, Taj Mahal, Canned Heat, Jesse Colin Young, Moby Grape and Wavy Gravy, to name a few.

The show is Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. in Speedway Meadow, Golden Gate Park, San Francisco. (Speedway Meadow is on John F. Kennedy Drive, west of Crossover and Transverse drives and east of the polo field.)

Tickets are free. For details, call (415) 861-1520 or visit www.2b1records.com/summeroflove40th.

ZAP MAMA

When vocalist Marie Daulne started Zap Mama 15 years ago, it was a female a cappella group that drew on Congolese pygmy music. Since then, Daulne has added a band, scored a Grammy nomination, collaborated with the Roots and toured with Erykah Badu. Now she returns to her roots with her new recording “Supermoon.” Zap Mama will feature its first new material in more than three years live at The Fillmore, 1805 Geary Blvd., San Francisco, at 9 p.m. Thursday. Tickets are $32.50.

Call (415) 346-6000 or visit www.thefillmore.com.

Singer-songwriter Shana Morrison performs her mix of pop, blues and rock with tinges of country, R&B, and jazz at 8 and 10 p.m. Saturday at Biscuits and Blues, 401 Mason St., San Francisco. Tickets are $15. Call (415) 292-2583.
