 Below are the list of San Fernando Valley locations which were filmed in Glendale and Northridge:

Liquor store robbery was at the 7 Days Food Store 1700 Victory Blvd Glendale. The parking lot of this strip mall is also used in this film.

The scene where Seth tries to steal liquor from the supermarket is the Jons at 1717 W Glenoaks Blvd Glendale.

Evan's house is 17200 Rayen Street Northridge.

This is the intersection of Hemmingway St and Encino Ave not too far from Evan's house and the party house below. 
The party house is at 17711 Community Street Northridge which is less than a mile southwest of Evan's home. Down the street was also used for when Evan & Seth are running through the neighborhood with the stolen booze in the 5 gallon gas jugs, then they get into an argument, and are finally stopped by the cops with McLovin.

The house in the background is 17822 Community Street
I believe this is the underpass at Reseda and Parthenia but really hard to tell since its so dark.
The scene where the cops destroy their squad car and set it on fire is at CSUN Lot F10 parking lot 18111 Nordhoff Street Northridge CA (see image below). This lot is actually on the corner of Lassen and Lindley. I am very familiar with this lot because I always parked there when I was running late (which was everyday) and the rest of the lots filled up. This was before they constructed the parking structures. Those were some good walks.
