Since opening in 2004, The Independent has served as one of the premiere venues of San Francisco. The Independent brings a diverse mix of entertainment to its stage – from hip-hop to EDM, comedy to podcasts, and everything in between. Many of today’s biggest artists played their first shows in San Francisco at The Independent, including LCD Soundsystem, fun., Bon Iver, Vampire Weekend, Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, Foster the People, Miguel, Disclosure, M.I.A., The xx, Zedd, Rodrigo y Gabriela, Pretty Lights and The National. Well into their careers, superstar acts such as Green Day, The Black Eyed Peas, Phoenix, John Legend, Sonic Youth, Arctic Monkeys, Dave Chappelle and Beck have performed at our intimate 500-capacity club.
With a continuous schedule of emerging and varied performers on stage, The Independent plays a vital role in San Francisco’s storied live music past, present and future and is proud to serve as the foundation of a continuously evolving NOPA district.
