Who likes to rock out? Marin does. We have a rich and amazing history of producing world-renowned recording artists, musicians and singers here. But it's not just rock music — it's classical, ska, blues, jazz — pretty much everything that makes sound.
Marin has several standout venues to see live music, but we want to know which one is the best when it comes to a night out on the town to hear great tunes.
In our latest edition of Readers' Choice, we've given you the keys, letting you primarily formulate the list of nominees and then select the winner. We solicited nominations from June 18 to July 9.
Voting began on July 23 and continues until Aug. 17. Some Readers' Choice categories span across all of Marin and others dig deep into individual towns and cities. This one is a countywide contest. Visit our topic page for all the Readers' Choice information.
The nominations for best live music venue in Marin are:
- Finnegan's Marin in Novato
- George's in San Rafael
- Marin Center in San Rafael
- Rickey's in Novato
- The Sleeping Lady in Fairfax
- Terrapin Crossroads in San Rafael
And if you own or manage one of the businesses in our contest, be sure to "claim" your listing; this allows you to customize the information that appears on our site, and to thank your loyal customers for the five-star ratings they give you.
