Maroon 5: "We drop our phones in the toilet, like, all the time."
And so the great cell phone-promotion concert series continues. We already told you how to see local indie-poppers Rogue Wave for free at Great American Music Hall this Thursday courtesy of Verizon. The latest salvo in the visit-our-wireless-store war is Maroon 5, whose show next Monday (Nov. 8) at the Fillmore will be free to all those with the guile to find an AT&T store in San Francisco. (Note: we said "store," not AT&T service.) It's not the iPhone being promoted here, but rather the new Windows phone -- the gadget promising to save us from our phone-falling-in-urinal obsession with our gadgets. (You have been seeing those clever  World Series commercials, haven't you?) Deets on the freebie for all you Maroon 5ers after the jump.

Basically, it's easy: just hit up an AT&T store in S.F. (there are several) next Monday, Nov. 8 -- the day of the show -- and snag your tickets to the Fillmore show. You may also enter to win a new Windows Phone on its Facebook page.

So that's two free concerts for you this week, courtesy of dueling cell providers -- and all you have to do is visit a damn store. If only every consumer product market was this competitive (and music-obsessed).

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
