Western Front, San Francisco

The Western Front was a dance hall located at 896 O'Farrell Street in San Francisco. Many Bay Area groups performed at the Western Front in 1966 and 1967. Surviving posters document performances by the Charlatans, Frumious Bandersnatch, Morning Glory, Indian Head Band, Big Brother & The Holding Company, Quicksilver Messenger Service, The Sons of Champlin and Blue Cheer.

Events at the venue were usually billed as "dance lessons" or "dance academy" to circumvent licensing laws.
