SF Weekly's Description

One of the best mid-size venues in the region, the Independent boasts great sound and sightlines, not to mention a diverse calendar that pulls top acts from genres including indie rock, alt-country, electronica, post-punk, funk, hip-hop, reggae, and other music from around the globe. Headlining acts often make the jump to larger, less-intimate theaters, making the Independent a great place to say you saw them when they were still playing the club circuit.

Tips from foursquare

  • Mazda on 11/17/10

    The Independent promotes positive change by proactively reducing our venue’s environmental footprint.

  • Daniel S. on 08/15/11

    What a great venue -- small and intimate, but large enough that you'll get the occasional last minute show from a big name. Be sure to get on their mailing list to get last minute concert updates.

  • Band of the Day A. on 10/18/11

    Lots of BOD artists have played here! Love this venue--come before the bands get huge

  • Zipcar on 06/06/11

    One of the oldest (and best) venues around. One night you’ll take a chance on a new band, the next you’ll see someone who’s already a star. Either way, pray the place sells out so you snag a poster.
