Matisyahu plans S.F. performance

Matisyahu, the Grammy-nominated singer who rocketed to fame as the “Hassidic reggae superstar,” will perform Dec. 8 in San Francisco as part of his acoustic “Festival of Light” Chanukah concert.

Matisyahu, who no longer affiliates with a Hassidic movement, released his fourth studio album, “Spark Seeker,” this past summer. He also made his screen acting debut in  “The Possession,” released last month.

The artist performed Oct. 16 at Ace of Spades in Sacramento and Oct. 17 at the Catalyst in Santa Cruz; his Dec. 8 show in San Francisco is at the Masonic Center on Nob Hill. For information visit
