Behold, another new vista in the world of band-brand intertwining: A shoe company hosting free shows by famous bands and holding a lottery to decide who gets in. Maybe that's not completely unheard-of, exactly, but this level of it is new to S.F. Your favorite maker of Chuck Taylors is holding a concert series called Represent here later this month (to coincide with the opening of a new retail store downtown, natch), and has brought in artists like Hot Chip, Deltron 3030, Suicidal Tendencies, and more to play for free to a club full of lucky people.

The shows will be held at Slim's, and you will need to enter a lottery to get in. Basically, go to this website before next Tuesday, June 18, and select two shows you want to go to. Then wait and see if you are lucky. Here are the full lineups:

June 23: Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, DIIV, Metz, Tamaryn, the She's

June 24: Deltron 3030, Blackalicious, Angel Haze, 100s

June 25: Hot Chip, Tycho, Blackbird Blackbird, Social Studies

June 26: Quicksand, Mastodon, High on Fire, Saviours, Hot Lunch

June 27: Suicidal Tendencies, Rocket From the Crypt, The Bronx, Ceremony, the Shrine.

Again, you could see two of these for free -- if you win the lottery. You can enter here.

  • 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.'"
