The final free concert of the 2017 Point Richmond Music (PRM) summer concert series is set for Friday from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. with performances by Sang Matiz and Pangea Futbol Club.

This is your last chance this year to see historic Point Richmond — specifically at Park Place between West Richmond and Washington avenues — transform into a family-friendly festival with live music, face-painting for children, an opportunity drawing, and dancing in the street. 

Along with local restaurants, a rotating selection of food trucks pull up to each concert, including Curbside Kitchen and Maya Taqueria, and concert-goers can pair fine food with beverages served from PRM’s no host bar, featuring craft beer from sponsors-in-kind East Brother Beer Co. and Lagunitas Brewing Company.

Proceeds from the no host bar directly support the music series, which held five concert dates this summer. Please visit www.pointrichmondmusic.org for more information. 

Friday, Sept. 22, 5:30 – 6:30 PM 
Sang Matiz 

Sang Matiz fuses energetic World and Afro-Brazilian/Peruvian beats with contemporary rhythms such as pop, jazz, and funk. They’ve perfected a unique combination of catchy, syncopated melodies with flamenco-styled finger picking. In 2015, Sang Matiz was chosen to open for the legendary Cuban band Buena Vista Social Club Orchestra for their final “Adios Tour.” Throughout the years, they’ve also collaborated with renowned Bay Area musicians such as: Mario Alberto Silva (Master Trumpeter), Miguelito Martinez (Master Flutist/Composer), and Grammy Award-winner Braulio Barrera (Pacific Mambo Orchestra), Jorge Santana (Malo) and Pete Escovedo. 

6:45 – 8:00 PM –
Pangea Futbol Club 

Pangea F.C. was formed in 2007 in San Francisco from an international community gathering together to play one of their passions: “football” (aka soccer). The community harbored many talents from all corners of the earth. The great diversity of influences and styles became apparent in each gathering, where music was a common element. The idea of making music together finally took shape in the form of Pangea F.C., a spiral of international sounds influenced by flavors from the Americas, Arabic melodies, African rhythms, Gypsy harmonies, Asian scales and European influences.
