    This is the biggest venue I can still manage to enjoy myself in when seeing some good live shows.

    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.

    Passion Pit was amazing and Matt and Kim would have made the show worthwhile all by themselves @passionpit @mattandkim

    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.
