Check out 'Frisco's best live entertainment

Houses for sale in the Bay Area are situated in one of the most entertaining metro areas in the United States. San Francisco is home to many live music venues, and both local and international artists stop in the city to perform their hit songs. Spending a night at a concert hall is a great way to get to know the local scene, so if you have just relocated to the area, check out a few of these quality venues.

The Independent
This aptly named venue hosts unique and often quirky events that fall underneath the genre of independent music. For example, the United States Air Guitar Championships are being held here in the middle of July. While national events like these are somewhat of a rarity, The Independent is still a great place to see bands that may be flying underneath the pop culture radar. The Gaslight Anthem is a great example of such an artist.

It is situated at 628 Divisadero Street, accessible by either Route 101 from the north or south, or Interstate 80 and the Bay Bridge from the east. It is important to note that to attend shows here, you must be over the age of 21. No exceptions will be made.

The Warfield
The Warfield has been open for business in San Francisco for 90 years, and can hold up to 2,250 people within its famous walls. Everyone from Bob Dylan to Adele has played here over the years, and the venue is legendary for its fabulous acoustics and atmosphere.
Head down to 982 Market Street to enjoy some of the best live music San Francisco has to offer.

The Bottom of the Hill
An accolade by Rolling Stone Magazine called the Bottom of the Hill "the best place to hear live music in San Francisco," and the publication may be right. The Bottom of the Hill offers live music seven days a week in a variety of genres. There is a full-service kitchen and bar as well as an outdoor patio where customers can smoke or simply relax. If you've got the time, head down to 1233 17th Street - you won't regret it.

The Fillmore
The Fillmore Auditorium has been a part of the San Francisco music scene since before the 1960s, and reached its heyday during the psychedelic rock movement of the late 1960s. Stop at 1805 Geary Boulevard to enjoy some of the traditions that are still carried out today.

It’s hosted a number of famed musicians, from Duke Ellington and Count Basie to Van Morrison and the Grateful Dead. You may find yourself coming here to experience the history – but you’ll stay for the hot tunes and the happening scene.
