While producing over 3,500 shows and events with over two million tickets sold in its first 14 years, The Independent has become a premiere venue not only in San Francisco, but the entire world. The venue has presented a varied and diverse format that spans all genres, from indie rock and comedy to hip-hop and EDM and everything in between. Locally owned and internationally renowned, The Independent has become a favorite venue of artists on tour as well as for the local community. Noted for its robust sound and lights, perfect sight lines and a professional, courteous staff, the venue has become a staple for musicians, touring professionals and fans alike.
Many of today's hottest artists began playing shows in San Francisco at The Independent including Vampire Weekend, LCD Soundsystem, Fun., Bon Iver, Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, Foster the People, Miguel, Disclosure, M.I.A., The xx, Zedd, Rodrigo y Gabriela, Pretty Lights and The National. Legends like Levon Helm, Erasure, Phil Lesh, Jimmy Cliff, The Original Meters, Gregg Allman, Taj Mahal and Dr. John have also graced the venue's stage over the years. Superstar acts such as Green Day, The Black Eyed Peas, Phoenix, John Legend, Sonic Youth, Arctic Monkeys, Dave Chappelle and Beck have performed underplays at the intimate 500-capacity club.

Over the past decade The Independent has been a catalyst for the resurgence and burgeoning growth of the NOPA district, which has transformed into one of San Francisco's hottest neighborhoods with great restaurants, bars and boutiques. Pollstar Magazine ranked The Independent #30 in the world in 2013 for tickets sold in music venues under 3,000-capacity, of which The Independent is the smallest to be included in the Top 100. With a continuous schedule of emerging and varied performers on stage, The Independent plays a vital role in San Francisco's storied live music past, present and future and is proud to serve as the foundation of a continuously evolving NOPA district.

Informal businesses begin out of necessity. They are the most fundamental elements of any economy and the heart of communities and cities the world over. La Cocina began its journey in the homes of informal entrepreneurs, women mostly, as they hustled to patch income and make ends meet for their family. These are the studios of San Francisco where daughters are waitresses and workers crowd around soccer games to eat the foods they can’t find in restaurants.
These are the shopping carts that precede food trucks in not just selling a product but knowing how to find a customer. They are the timeless and tireless inspiration for small business. As businesses transition to the formal economy they not only move from income patching to asset generation but also change the opportunity index for entire communities. It is one thing to find the taste of home in a hot box on a corner, but entirely another thing to find it in a restaurant that you admire. And this is the story of so many of the women around you. A story of hustle and grit, of talent and determination, and opportunity executed upon.

The concert was a great success with over fifteen thousand people attending. The after party was held in the Crystal night club in Beirut with Young Buck and DJ Whookid performing.
