Fellow music lovers: After 24 years in the SF Bay Area, I will be moving to Austin. I still want to help promote the Bay Area music scene by maintaining this website, but will not have time to gather show listings for the 90+ venues listed.

Here's where you come in! If you are an avid - or even occasional - user of this site, please email me the names of the venues you frequent most. Venues that have the highest tallies will be kept up-to-date, while those with the lowest will be removed. Apologies in advance if your favorite venue doesn't make the cut. I will be adding a link to a complete list of venues from which you can navigate directly to their websites.

Email your favorite venues to info (at) Thanks!
