THE EVOLUTION OF THE MATRIX
The Matrix opened by Marty Balin as a place for his new band to play - Jefferson Airplane. From that moment on, The Matrix showcased the biggest bands of the 60's.
The Doors recorded “Live at the Matrix 1967” - a double live album, compiled from recordings made at The Matrix. The recording is one of the earliest live recordings of the band known to exist.
After being kicked off Sly & The Family Stone's tour – for, according to some, outshining them night after night – Bob Marley and his band the Wailers make their way to San Francisco for two shows at The Matrix.
When The Matrix closed, a nearby bar, "Pierce Street Annex," leased the space and moved in, remodeling once again, and turning it into a nightclub featuring DJs, and no live music.
The PlumpJack Group took over the space and renamed it MatrixFillmore. The ultra lounge concept quickly became the Marina’s go-to nightlife destination, featuring DJs and dancing.
MatrixFillmore evolved into The Matrix, a casual neighborhood bar with a fresh vibe that includes bar snacks, draft beer, cocktails and an expanded selection of spirits, plus DJs and dancing on the weekend.
