The Cost of Seeing Maroon 5 for Free: Your Facebook Soul

Posted By on Tue, Nov 2, 2010 at 2:06 PM

This is bullshit.
  • This is bullshit.
This is bullshit.
Yesterday we informed you of a free Maroon 5 show at the Fillmore this Monday -- free, that is, if you pick up tickets at a local AT&T store. (It's a promo for the new Windows phone.) Well, turns out there is a additional cost involved, and we're not talking about Muni fare. The cost of seeing Maroon 5 for free is, in fact, your Facebook soul.

From SF Weekly's clubs editor, John Graham, who went looking for details on the show for our listings:

... those evil corporate fuckers won't even let me see the info until I click the "Like" button (which, of course, would broadcast to all my FB friends that I apparently like Maroon 5 and Windows Mobile). If you don't click the "Like" button, all you get is a fuzzed-out computer screen.

So much for the information superhighway. It's now a toll road. Entry fee: your Facebook soul.

  • 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.'"
