- Permit for Summer of Love concert in park denied for 2nd time
By Sam Whiting - Thursday Jun 15, 2017
Citing unresolved safety, transportation and legal issues, the San Francisco Recreation and Park Commission on Thursday again denied promoter Boots Hughston a permit to host a free concert in Golden Gate Park to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love. The 4-2 vote was greeted by boos at the end of a long morning of public testimony on behalf of the Council of Light, an organization of volunteers hoping to put on the event under the leadership of Hughston on Aug. 27 in Sharon Meadow. [...] to me, the issues are overcrowding and that they haven’t hired an event planner or medical and police personnel. Fellow Commissioner Tom Harrison also voted against the appeal after hearing San Francisco police officers had not been contacted by Hughston. Commissioners Kat Anderson, who described herself as a “hippie at heart,” and Gloria Bonilla both voted against upholding the staff denial and expressed hope the concert could still take place this summer. The denial of the appeal came less than a week after the city, under the auspices of Rec and Park, said it would hold its own free Surrealistic Summer Solstice event Wednesday, including a concert featuring members of the Jefferson Airplane, Quicksilver Messenger Service and the Chambers Brothers, plus a lighting of the Conservatory of Flowers in psychedelic colors. There were suggestions that Rec and Park had stolen the Council of Light’s idea and undercut it with its own event, which the council pointed out was advertised without a permit in place — one of the reasons the commissioned turned down Hughston. Rec and Park General Manager Phil Ginsburg explained that Rec and Park does not issue permits for its own events, therefore had not skirted rules for the Surrealistic Summer Solstice. Hughston, in his customary unbuttoned button down over a dirty black T-shirt, particularly took umbrage at requests by staff that he partner with a more experienced event producer, emphasizing that at 68 years old, he has been producing events for four decades. Kurt “Crowbar” Kangas, who lived through the original ’67 Summer of Love festivities, added that the members of the Council of Light have more experience years in staging concerts and events combined compared with Rec and Park staff. David Grace, a theater manager who once worked at the Fillmore, went so far as to suggest that Rec and Park staff was corrupt, and ended his testimony with one word: “Extortion.” [...] none of it worked.
