Tsunami relief concert gets a break

About $900 worth of permits were waived for a tsunami relief concert in Golden Gate Park’s Music Concourse that is expected to draw about 800 on November 21.

The concert, produced by SF Friends of American Samoa/Samoa Disaster Relief Team and Most Bangin’ Entertainment, starts at noon and ends at 6 p.m.

The Recreation and Park Commission voted 4-1 to waive the $875 permit fee for the concourse and the $56 sound application fee for the family concert with Polynesian performers such as JBoog and The Jets and local artists such as MALO and the Family Stone.

Attendees will be asked for donations and wrapped toys to benefit the American Red Cross specifically for victims of the recent tsunami in American Samoa and Samoa Islands.

On Septemer 29, an undersea earthquake near the islands of Samoa and American Samoa triggered a wall of water that flooded the areas and killed more than 100 people.
