As for the "yuppie places", I really like the Fillmore. There is a DJ spinning vinyl at the bar upstairs, old bills everywhere and what's not to like about getting a free one-off poster for shows you pay between $20-35 for?
After that, I'll take the GAMH, Grand Ballroom, Warfield, and Slims, which is the only one that sucks.
Unless it's an all day two-stage deal, I would rather see a fest lineup at one of the arenas than the Shoreline or Concord.
I know it gets worse, I'm just saying, it's shitty.
I like places to hang out if a band sucks, the ballroom doesn't really have that. Not a fan of the whole place. It aint the worst though.
