To mark the launch of its Zune media player, Microsoft is paying for New York rockers Secret Machines to play a free concert Monday at the Westlake park at Fourth Avenue and Pine Street.
Similar “flash” concerts are happening in New York, L.A., Chicago, Atlanta and Miami on Monday, featuring an assortment of funky bands. Funny, they forgot the Bay Area.
I wonder if any members of Microsoft’s Vista team will still be partying downtown when Monday’s show begins.
The Secret Machines sound fun, but L.A. and New York are getting the A-listers: Red Hot Chili Peppers and Queens of the Stone Age.
