Great American Music Hall

Get tickets in advance for shows at the Great American Music Hall because even though it's a big venue, sell-outs are common. All ages can enjoy the music in this historic venue, with talent spanning the entire spectrum from punk to country, famous to unknown, local to international. Jonathan Richman, Nick Lowe, Boss Hogg, !!!, the Ponys, and the Dirtbombs are just a few of the acts to have graced this hallowed stage. Watch from rows, tables, balcony seats, or the stage-level dance floor. The ornate gold and red velvet curtains are a throwback to the Barbary Coast days. The venue serves food and drinks to the large crowds.

The Chapel

Music-lovers looking for a unique venue should look no further than The Chapel, one of San Francisco's most beloved spots for folk, bluegrass and indie-rock (among other genres). The building was constructed in 1914 and originally housed a prominent mortuary. The spot has come a long way since its days as a mortuary - the building has since been converted into a lively high-tech music venue that boasts a mezzanine and features the original 40-foot high arched ceilings of the mortuary's chapel. The building also houses the venue's sister establishment, The Vestry, a late-night eatery and favored brunch spot that always draws a crowd. Â

A mid-sized venue located in the Alamo Square neighborhood, the Independent has hosts well-known acts like Danny Brown, Kathleen Edwards, Melt Banana, and The Waifs, and also showcases heavy hitters like Green Day and Phoenix. Seating is general admission, standing room only with a small number of first-come, first, serve seats.

The Fillmore

An architectural masterpiece, The Fillmore itself is as worth seeing as any band that plays here. Stand on the main floor next to the historic stage and look up at soaring ceilings, embellished with carvings and gold paint, while the booming speakers rattle your bones. If you choose the tranquility of the balcony instead, sink into velvet-covered seats, sip cocktails, and eat French fries. With posters representing almost every group that has ever played here, the history of American music is on full display.

Occasionally, all-age shows allow even the youngest music fans to rock out with the big kids. The venue also offers a full bar and a kitchen, so no need to worry if you’ve got an appetite for drinks and food.

Bimbo's 365 Club

The retro luxuriousness of Bimbo's 365 Club's interior adds unexpected character to the venue.

Past headliners have included the Detroit Cobras, the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, They Might Be Giants, Seu Jorge, Aimee Mann and the Flaming Lips. Weekly Wing nights fill the floor with Charleston-ing zoot-suiters, accentuating the original plush crimson curtains of Bimbo's 1931 opening.
