SF Weekly's Description
Slim's is a midsize, brick-walled venue that hosts a variety of underground rock, metal, hip-hop, and reggae bands - and not only is it one of the few live music clubs in a neighborhood dominated by DJ discothèques, it's also one of the best places in the city for underage music fans to catch bands on the way up. There's a full bar for clubgoers over 21, plus a rear upstairs balcony with seating and tables if you want to take a load off and get away from the throngs below.
Tips from foursquare
Saturday: Crocodiles - The title of the San Diego band's debut album, “Summer of Hate,” sums up their fascination with the dark side excess and their love of '60s cutting-edge music. ($15; 8 p.m.)
A seriously awesome place to see shows with a smaller crowd.
There's a bathroom downstairs near the coat check. Empty & clean at a sold out show
The sister club of the Great American Music Hall, performers at Slim's know how to rock out. Love the vintage videos without sound they play during intermission.
This is one of our favorite venues in SF. Just small enough to feel intimate, but always a buzzing crowd. And FYI, there are bathrooms downstairs!
