There’s more to a music venue than what you see on stage, which is why the Rock it Out! Blog takes you behind the scenes of our favorite venues from around the country in a new video series called RiO!Backstage.
Our first installment focuses on one of the premiere spots for live music in San Francisco, CA. A mecca for live events in the Bay Area, The Independent opened its doors in 2004 and has welcome everyone from Green Day to Levon Helm to Vampire Weekend. Join us as we give you an exclusive, in-depth look at inner workings of this celebrated venue and its dedicated staff.
