The Concerts We're Looking 4ward 2 This Summer in SF
Summer is the best time of year for concerts, esp. in such a music city like San Francisco. With numerous music venues and hundreds of shows per month, in SF you can find just about anything - from rock ‘n’ roll legends to indie unknowns, jazz, blues, hip hop and rap. That said, here are the summer concerts we’re most looking 4ward 2 at some of our favorite venues like The Fillmore and The Masonic. #LocalTip: The Masonic (click for map) is just two blocks from Stanford Court Hotel, aka a 6-min walk. Who has the best seat in the house now?
