If you've never experienced hearing talented musicians perform in a small, intimate environment, you are in for a treat.
House concerts are a growing trend across the country, where people invite friends and neighbors into their homes for an up-close concert experience. And there are many house concerts being held in and around the San Francisco area that you can check out - you just need to contact the host and ask to be invited.
In addition, live acoustic music can be heard in many listening rooms, small theaters and local vineyards and breweries in San Francisco. Restaurants and cafes around town sometimes also host nationally touring musicians.
