East Bay Venues: The Basics

12 May

East Bay Venues

The venues listed here run the gamut from independent “hole in the wall” warehouse spaces to big corporate arenas to coffee shops and bars. I’ve tried to list every east bay venue here and I feel that I’ve covered Oakland and Berkeley pretty well. If you have additions to make please post them in the replies and I will investigate and add them to the list!

Not all the venues listed here have websites – many of the smaller indie spots would rather advertise through fliers and word of mouth. I plan to list the shows for these spaces along with the other venues but researching where they are and such is up to you! That’s just how it is folks.

Check it!
