    Friday: Stone Foxes -- Think drinking beer on the porch with your best buddies blues, not chasing devil-hearted women ($12, 10 p.m). Read more

  • Bloomingdale's

    Out-of-the-way, but easy to find – just look for the off-kilter neon sign attached to the blue wood-framed house. Inside is crammed with fans feasting on the up-and-coming bands, 7 nights a week.

    Bloomingdale's · August 18, 2010
  • Devan L.

    Hang out in the patio behind the stage between sets.

    Cuz Ramona & co. rock. (Note: she's the longtime owner/booker there and has been great to us. This is where we showcased for Wind-up)

    see your faves before they blow up & pack the big, snooty venues, hang out back, check out the wall of calendars past + all the old noise pop posters, order a whiskey & tip those beautiful bartenders!

    Awesome venue, even if it feels like a journey to get there. Read more

  • Jared Z.

    This place is a little out of the way, and it sucks trying to catch a cab after the show (ride your bike!), but you're unlikely to get any closer to your favorite band.

    Be careful. No ins OR outs here. I got in okay, but I'm fearful of how or if I'll get out.

    The food grill is pretty sweet if you need a snack to soak up the beer you'll drink during a show.

    Tofu tacos are to die for! Actual best in the city (surprising for a venue like this, yes, but nonetheless true!)

    A trip to Bottom of the Hill is a must, but be wary of the location. Cars frequently get broken into outside the club, so don’t leave anything valuable in plain sight. Read more

    A great place like this is something you wouldn't find in Potrero hill normally. Can easily be over looked (2 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more
