When it isn’t selling itself for trade expos or graduation ceremonies, the Bill Graham Civic hosts occasional top-shelf rock shows. This huge, boxlike indoor center located near Civic Center Plaza has seen the likes of Beck, Radiohead, Green Day, and Pearl Jam, to name a few. Structurally, it’s not unlike the Henry J. Kaiser Center in Oakland, with a huge floor and a U-shaped balcony level with seats rising to the nosebleed section. Thankfully, two TV screens assist in that arena. While the Bill Graham (named after the famous rock promoter) isn’t particularly elegant – expect plastic beer cups littering the sticky floor – at least it’s more intimate than a stadium show. Easily accessible by BART or MUNI.
