Live Music

in Downtown, Civic Center & SoMa

Big acts with international followings play this former vaudeville theater. Marquee names like Wu-Tang Clan, Iggy Pop, Kanye West and Sarah Silverman explain the line down this seedy Tenderloin block and the packed, pot-smoky balconies. Beer costs $9 to $10 and water $4, so you might as well get cocktails. Street parking isn't advisable – try the garage at 5th and Mission.
