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.

  • San Francisco Street Food Festival 2014
    The San Francisco Street Food Festival was another success this year. Dozens of vendors with original, unheard-of creations, such as deep fried mac and cheese on a stick, black pea paste pancakes, and Korean quesadillas. Then there was the comfort foods we've grown accustomed to, like creme bruleé, shrimp rolls, and pound cake. Photographs by Mabel Jimenez.
