In the 1920s, The Warfield was a popular location that featured vaudeville and other major performances, such as Al Jolson. More recently The Warfield had an appeal as a rock concert venue because it has more intimacy and better sound quality than an arena, yet has an occupancy of over 2000 persons. Like many historic theaters, its main floor had the seats removed in the 1980s for general admission and dancing. Prior to the removal of the seats, Joe Strummer of The Clash once refused to play unless the first two rows of seats were removed to allow for dancing. [2] It is a favorite venue for performance among many entertainers.[3]

The Warfield served as a home for the Grateful Dead for many years. In 1980, the Dead played 15 sold-out shows there, featuring both an acoustic and two electric sets. The shows were a celebration of the band’s fifteenth anniversary and done as a show of appreciation for their loyal fans. These, along with a sold-out 8 night run at New York’s Radio City Music Hall were recorded for release as two double albums; one, all acoustic called Reckoning, the other, electric, called Dead Set. Jerry Garcia also made the Warfield a second home, performing a record 88 times there with his various side bands, when not touring with the Dead.

Bob Dylan played 14 shows at the start of his first Gospel Tour in November 1979, and again 12 shows in November 1980 during his „A Musical Retrospective Tour“ at the Warfield.

As is common with large music venues there are a great variety of musicians scheduled.

    It's pretty good. But the sound is crappy up front, they sound guy is also bass drum crazy, overpowers everything in a bad way. At least when I've been there.

    There isnt anything technically "wrong" with the Warfield, it just isnt a very good venue. Its cramped in all the wrong ways and structured so that its awkward to find where you want to be. Seats are terrible and the floor ushers are douche bags (specifically the one really awkward guy with the pony tail who always stands at the bottom of the main floor stairs and yells at people for being on them) Bottom of the Hill and Rickshaw stop are way better for small shows, and the Fillmore and Great American Music Hall for bigger ones.

    Wow.... These people are kind of ridiculous (and methinks slightly ignorant?) There is NOTHING wrong with the Warfield, other than the fact that it is old and worn out, and closed all summer.

    Aw man I like the Warfield. For one it's one of the only really beautiful old theaters left in San Francisco. Tragic. It's gorgeous and historical. I think the people are just intense haha but definitley cool.
