FAQ

Q: What is The Word?
A: The Word is a tailored list of events curated by some the best San Francisco tastemakers. We feature live music and nightclub events, museum exhibits and art shows, pop-up shops and special dining experiences and more.

Q: Where do you find your event listings?

A: We comb through hundreds of event listings on various venue pages, artist pages, and other websites and periodicals. We hand pick events that perk our curiosity and have very high standards when it comes to our features on The Word, so you can stay updated on the best events near you.
Q: What makes The Word different from our local competitors?
A: We are very selective in what we list, we don’t list EVERYTHING that is happening in SF or the Bay. Other event websites often use aggregators to list all of the events taking place in our area, and that can be difficult to comb through. We have hired a diverse staff of event selectors to provide you with unique events and opportunities for fun in the Bay Area. Our goal is to fill our site with events that we actually want to go to!
Q: Can I view events by venue or location?
A: Yes! If you have a favorite venue in the area you can look through the events coming to that one location to help make planning a night out even easier.
Q: Can I list my event on The Word?
A: If you would like to have your event featured or listed, you may submit it us at events@theword.co for consideration. Ads are also available for purchase.
Q: Wow, looks like you do a ton of ticket giveaways. Do people really win tickets to all of these?
A: Absolutely! We partner with venues, artists, promoters, and clubs to offer our subscribers the chance to see some of the best acts coming to the Bay.
Q: When are winners announced?
A: For tickets to concerts and nightclubs the winners are announced at least 48 hours before the show. For music festivals, we will announce the winners 7 days prior to the start of the event. You will be notified by the email to the address that you supplied when you entered. Make sure to check back often, new giveaways are being added daily!
Q: Does The Word have a weekly newsletter?
Yes we do! We send out The Word weekly every Tuesday so you can see what events we have hand selected for the week. You can sign up to receive these weekly emails on our homepage.
Q: What is the SMS text sign up I see on your site?
A: In addition to signing up to receive weekly emails, we also have a text message service that will send event alerts directly to your phone. Stay up to date about the best underground events, special giveaways and more!
