Ballin’ on a budget in the Bay Area

It’s not news that San Francisco’s cost of living is way up there. But is it true that you can’t have fun on the cheap in SF? When an article titled “Why You Can’t Afford Shows in SF” appeared in SF Weekly recently, highlighting that ticket prices in our fair city can sometimes be much higher than the rest of the country, it piqued our interest. According to the article, the average ticket price in San Francisco is $129, 59% higher than the rest of the Bay Area. Ouch.

We love live events, and nothing should deter fans from getting out to see a show. So, we rose to the challenge to find November events in the Bay Area that won’t break the bank. They’re all under $16 bucks and actually worth every penny:
