Three big-name acts, Hunter Hayes, Fall Out Boy, and Skrillex, will be playing free shows at the Regency Ballroom this week thanks to Super Bowl 50. The shows are sponsored by an app called Go90 that requires an app download in order to get a ticket for each free show. The downsides are that only the first 560 people to register get free tickets and both Hunter Hayes and Fall Out Boy are already sold-out. 

The good news is that Skrillex's show on Saturday, Feb. 6, has not yet gone on sale, so you still have a chance to snag free tickets to that one. They go on sale starting Wednesday, Feb. 3, so if you want to see the bespectacled DJ, you better download the app today and register for a validation code. 

(Update: All the performances will also be streamed on go90's website for those who can't make it (or get tickets) to the shows.)

Other big-name acts that will be performing this weekend include: Pharrell (Friday, Feb. 5 at Pier 70), J. Cole (Friday, Feb. 5 at The Grand in SoMa), Nick Jonas (Friday, Feb. 5 at "ESPN The Party" at Fort Mason), DJ Mustard, 50 Cent, and Ty Dolla $ign (Friday, Feb. 5 at The Fox Theater in Oakland), Goapele (Saturday, Feb. 6 for FREE at the City Stage), Alicia Keys (Saturday, Feb. 6 for FREE at the City Stage), Metallica (Saturday, Feb. 6 at AT&T Park), and The Red Hot Chili Peppers (Saturday, Feb. 6 at Pier 70).

Also worth mentioning: Chris Brown will host a party at Origin on Saturday, Feb. 6, and A$AP Rocky will host a party on Treasure Island on Saturday, Feb. 6. 

And don't forget: Coldplay, Beyonce, and Bruno Mars will be performing during the Super Bowl 50 half-time show.

  • 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.'"
