McCarter, Magid to bring funk to downtown park

- — Anne Schrager

Downtown San Francisco is beginning to feel like it’s waking up again. Take as a bit of evidence Oakland trumpet player/ DJ Will Magid and soul singer Ziek McCarter of Con Brio, who are set to perform an outdoor show with jazz and funk elements on Thursday, April 29, mixed in with a deep palette of multicultu­ral sounds sampled from around the world.

These two creative minds will provide an Afropop and soultinged set during the second installmen­t of the newly hatched Yerba Buena Gardens Festival PopUp lunchtime music series, offering a solid opportunit­y for a dose of midday dancing and entertainm­ent for those around the YBCA grounds.

The program is scheduled to provide free performanc­es weekly through May, with the hope that it will continue into the summer months.

Will Magid and Ziek McCarter: Part of Yerba Buena Gardens Festival Lunchtime Pop-Up Series. Noon-2 p.m. Thursday, April 29. Free. YBCA Gardens, Mission Street between Third and Fourth streets, S.F. 415-543-1718. ybg
