Finding San Francisco's Unexpected Music Venues

Some of San Francisco’s most prized institutions are its live music venues. Think about it: The Fillmore, Great American Music Hall, Davies Symphony Hall and others have all served as proving grounds for the world’s best artists, musicians, and social influencers. It should come as no surprise, then, that San Francisco is rich with places where live music lives and thrives, even when you’d never guess it. Here are some unexpected gems around town to catch a show at this week.

The answer is: you live in San Francisco, and this is what you signed up for. No complaining.
