We all know this is a bona fide music lovers' town, so it's really no surprise that San Francisco annihilated the competition in Stubhub.com's "Most Rockin' City of 2010" rankings, in which we placed 4th, based on how much money the population spent on ticket sales through StubHub.
Apparently, despite the recession and hard times all around, the city shelled out hundreds to see gigantic shows, like Lady Gaga's Monster Ball, to smaller artists' performances, like Vampire Weekend. The top-ranked city? Hartford, Connecticut (say what?), which grabbed the title of "Most Rockin' City of 2010" from the now 3rd-ranked New York City. Boston, MA ranked 2nd. We're just appalled that neither LA nor Austin, TX are on the list.
Let's make San Francisco number one in 2011!
