Free OK Go show on Saturday!
|January 31, 2011||Posted by jamie under Events||
While waiting for the 14-Mission bus at Steuart and Mission Streets or any one of a number of bus stops in San Francisco over the past several weeks, you may have played the Yahoo! Bus Stop Derby interactive touch screen games. While the South of Market District came in fifth with 188,550 points, the first place winner was the North Beach neighborhood with 363,650 points. As such, North Beach won a block party and free concert from OK Go.
The GREAT NEWS is that everyone* is welcome to attend the show (*as long as you’re one of the first 800 people to get wrist bands to attend the rooftop show).
Here are the details …
WHAT: Yahoo! Bus Stop Derby is an innovative interactive contest that enabled San Francisco locals to engage with games based on Yahoo! Mobile applications, while competing to win points for their neighborhood. This unique experience engaged SF residents on a local level for the grand prize of a free block party and a concert from OK Go.
The block party will have an array of local SF food vendors and fun activities, and for a few lucky concert goers a chance to get VIP status during the concert. People can “Flash their Yahoo! Mobile app” and interact with Yahoo! over IM to get VIP perks like a special area to watch the show and perhaps even meet the band.
WHO: Yahoo!, Goodby Silverstein & Partners, Clear Channel, and the city of SF partnered to create this experience and will host the block party with a free performance by Grammy winning rock band OK Go, known for their viral videos.
WHERE: San Francisco Art Institute (Main Campus)
800 Chestnut Street (between Jones and Leavenworth)
San Francisco, CA 94133
WHEN: Saturday, February 5th
Doors open at 3:30pm
Since I think I’m not the only one reading this who is slightly beyond the age demographic for the band OK Go, here is a taste (and maybe a familiar sight) to get you in the groove for this awesome weekend treat courtesy of Yahoo!
