Last month it was a regular ol' concert at the Warfield, followed a day later by a crazy last-minute late-night show with Dave Chappelle in Oakland. And next week Lauryn Hill comes back to the Bay Area for something else altogether: a special tribute to her longtime muse, Bob Marley.

Of course, nearly every Hill concert is kind of a tribute to Marley -- she played two of his songs at the brief Oakland performance last month. But next Wednesday's show at Mezzanine is being billed as a one-time-only, full-on Bob Marley & the Wailers tribute. Hill will be trotting out many of his most popular songs and playing her own greatest hits, too.

Naturally, such one-timery doesn't come cheap. Early-bird tickets are now on sale for $60 a pop. VIP tickets are $90. And even at those rates, don't be surprised if this thing sells out.

  • Felton: Touring the Redwoods
    Blue skies meet redwood canopies in the mountain town of Felton, located just north of Santa Cruz on Highway 9. Once a bustling logging community, the town is now a mix of mellow locals and serene wilderness. Visitors can enjoy the redwoods in nearby Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park and splash in swimming holes in the San Lorenzo River. For a bite to eat stop by Rocky’s Cafe for fruit-laden pancakes, barbeque at the Cowboy Bar & Grill and poolside burgers at the Trout Farm Inn. Other stops worth checking out include Roaring Camp Railroads, the Mount Hermon zip line tour, and the educational Bigfoot Discovery Museum. For beer or cocktails a log cabin bar has you covered.
