Open now through Nov. 22: 'My Mañana Comes' at the Marin Theater Company. Four busboys in a New York City restaurant, the exploitation of undocumented workers, and a discussion of how poor people get criminal records because they can't afford bail. Still, this new play manages to be funny while tugging at the heartstrings. Details here.
Saturday, Nov. 7: Leon Bridges at the Fillmore. This young singer out of Texas has taken the soul world by storm over the past year, in no small part thanks to a seriously magnetic live show -- documented well in his NPR Tiny Desk Concert. Details here.
Saturday, Nov. 7: Cappella SF at Mission Dolores. Ragnar Bohlin has a full-time gig as director for the San Francisco Symphony chorus, but he's taken on this 24-member side project, which is performing a show about preserving the beauty of nature; works include those by Ralph Vaughan Williams, Veljo Tormis, David Conte, Eric Whitacre and Claudio Monteverdi. Details here.
Sunday, Nov. 8: Tommy Guerrero at Brick & Mortar Music Hall. San Francisco's own skateboarding guitarist, Tommy Guerrero, will play songs off his new album, Perpetual. Next spring will see him skateboarding on a cruise ship (yes, that's right) alongside Flogging Molly. Details here.
