Pop music concerts in San Fran area over next few months

My sister is moving from the UK to the San Francisco area in a few weeks. As a goodbye and good luck present I want to buy her tickets to a pop music concert in/near SF. Her tastes are quite broad, but mainly she likes good old sing-along pop music. [more inside]

Bay area/wine country wedding venue help?

My fiancée and I are getting married next year, and are looking for venues in/near wine country, or elsewhere in the Bay area. We would like an all-in-one facility, so have been looking at large houses to rent so far, which have the added bonus of letting the wedding party sleep on site, but are open to other possibilities. Does anyone have any suggestions or advice for this search? [more inside]

Unique Philadelphia area wedding venue ideas needed

Fiance and I are attempting to plan a wedding for less than 150 guests in early March 2015 in the Philadelphia area. We currently live in Montgomery county, but we are open to considering locations in the 5 county area (and are learning toward Philadelphia, which will make things easier on our out of town guests). We want to keep the venue/catering/booze costs around $15,000 if possible, which seemed super easy before we started searching. Help! [more inside]

Band guest list etiquette?

We're going to a gig tonight that is massively sold out … and we're on the guest list. Are guest lists completely at the whim of the venue, or are there general guidelines that apply to most venues? We want to enjoy the show, but don't want to be “that guy” who ruins it for those nearby. [more inside]

UK Disability Law - venues inaccessible to performers?

What laws apply to music/performance venues in the UK in terms of providing reasonable access to disabled artists? Example: a band with a member in a wheelchair, where the venue may not be equipped to allow a wheelchair user onstage or in the backstage areas.

Seeking a Wedding Venue Near Boca Raton, Florida

Hi there! My fiancee and I are looking to get married in Florida in either the spring or fall (hopefully when it’s not boiling hot). We plan to invite about 200 people and we’re looking for a venue where we can have both the ceremony and the reception (and if it were a hotel as well, all the better). We’re looking for someplace within a 45-minute drive of Boca Raton, so we’re talking about places like Delray Beach, Boca del Mar, Deerfield Beach, Pompano Beach all the way down to Fort Lauderdale. (There may be other places nearby besides the ones I’ve listed.) The trick is, we’re looking for an INDOOR venue that’s more than just four solid walls. Ideally we’d like something with lots of windows and a view, and maybe even a patio. If anyone has any ideas, we’d be very grateful. TripAdvisor or Yelp links are *especially* welcome. Thanks everyone! Much obliged to MetaFilter!

NEED A WEDDING VENUE IN BOCA RATON, FLORIDA

NEED A WEDDING SPOT IN BOCA RATON, FLORIDA: Hi there! My fiance and I are planning to get married in early June in or around Boca Raton, Florida. We are looking for a venue (for both the ceremony and the reception) that is indoors (i.e., air conditioned) but that has windows/a view of the outdoors, and can fit 150-200 people. Can be anywhere within a half hour drive of Boca Raton (e.g., Deerfield Beach, Boca Del Mar, etc.). We have searched the Internet with little luck (and the Japanese Gardens are too small). Help!

21+ actually?

There's a Boston-area shoegaze festival called Deep Heaven Now happening this weekend, and I'll be in Boston. The ads say 21+, and I'm not 21. How likely is it that I'll actually be carded? Is there a "draw Xes on your hands" option? (Also, if I can't get in, do you have any other recommendations for good live music on Friday night?)

What are some good restaurant/bar venues in DC to host a medium-sized reception in mid-October? It's for a low-key wedding reception for friends. Considerations are: availability of private or semi-private space that can accomodate 40-50 people, relatively inexpensive catering menu, and a huge bonus would be something that offers outdoor/rooftop space.

Toiling over Wedding Venue!

I have a dilemma regarding wedding venue. Months ago, I decided on a wedding venue, mom put down the deposit, the end. I am in the south and both the church and the reception were downtown historic buildings, very ritzy and high-class looking--what I envisioned a wedding should be. The rub is about a month ago, my aunt volunteered to help with the decorations, we bring her buy the place, and she starts finding fault, telling us about this other place that's so much better supposedly.
