    Probably my least favorite venue in SF. It's more like a gymnasium than a music venue. Less overpriced for beer than some venues and the security/entrance line always moves briskly.

    I went to the WWDC bash here with Good Charlotte. The sound is amazing.

    You can bring a factory-sealed water bottle, so next time you're on the floor, you won't pass out like last time.

    Giant auditorium ruins sounds. Terrible acoustics. Only go here if it's a must see act, don't go into the stands or else you won't be able to see anything. Park on 9th for free, the lots rip you off.

    This is an historic building dating back to World War I era, retrofit many times to host historic concerts.

    Bulldoze it along with the rest of the Tenderloin district. Start over, because what ya'll got going on around here isn't working anymore.

    This legendary venue has hosted Deadmau5, Avicii, Kaskade, and many more. Plenty of room to move, with bathrooms on both upper and lower levels.
