Hippie vibe alive and well in the Haight (Haight & Ashbury). Check the telephone poles for flyers of bands playing in the area or pick up a FREE SF Bay Guardian weekly paper. The Independent at 628 Divisadero St. (near the Haight) has a range of bands Tues thru Sundays. Tix usually about $15 - $18. Also, Amoeba Music at the end of Haight St. near Golden Gate Park. Sometimes has FREE concerts -- but most of all check out the huge stock of used CDs & vinyl. about 10 years ago
