This Week in Live Music: Built to Spill, Waters, Wet, and More

With the Super Bowl in the rearview we can kiss sponsored events goodbye and proceed with our regularly scheduled world-class offering of underground music. 

Live Music This Week: Dave Matthews, Seal, Snoop Dogg, Pharrell, and More

San Francisco should really host the Super Bowl more often. We're mostly kidding, but music fanatics are starting to realize the upside of having the Big Game in our backyard. The NFL's marquee event has brought some of the industry's biggest stars to the Bay Area. 

This Week in Live Music: Julia Holter, Majical Cloudz, Dan Deacon & More

Is your calendar filling up with must-see shows and your wallet nearly empty? Us too. 

Live Music This Week: The Go! Team, Ty Segall, Andrew Blair, and More

Last week, someone in the Mission posted this on a lamp post: “Call it Frisco / January 29th." I hope they're trying to make an SF/disco pun, but it will probably be a protest. Either way, I'm bringing some disco music.

Live Music This Week: Kygo, Rebirth Brass Band, Elijah Wood, and More

All praise the Redditor who is collecting Fauxchella concert links in this Subreddit (bookmark that sucker!). Be a pal and add links to any Bay Area shows involving 2016 Coachella acts when you see ‘em, for our collective reference!

Live Music This Week: Tool, Tower of Power, and More

Time to dance/air-guitar/head bang/twerk off all that holiday cheer. If the gym’s not your thing, get your New Year workout on at these choice shows.

ICYMI: Earlier this year, The Elbo Room faced eviction, but ownership recently announced on Facebook that they have extended their lease through January 1, 2018. Win! 

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.
