RiO!Backstage – The Independent

There’s more to a music venue than what you see on stage, which is why the Rock it Out! Blog takes you behind the scenes of our favorite venues from around the country in a new video series called RiO!Backstage.

Our first installment focuses on one of the premiere spots for live music in San Francisco, CA. A mecca for live events in the Bay Area, The Independent opened its doors in 2004 and has welcome everyone from Green Day to Levon Helm to Vampire Weekend. Join us as we give you an exclusive, in-depth look at inner workings of this celebrated venue and its dedicated staff.

Let us know in the comment section what venues we should profile next.

    “The music business is filled with ethical erosion.” I couldn’t have said that better myself. Throughout my and the rest of the band’s experience, if you go out of your way to be courteous to others then you will get the same in return. It’s almost like being in the mob…always having to watch your back and not knowing who to trust. But in the end, we are set out to create good karma. The old cliche is true – what goes around, comes around.
