Chic has had its fair share of rock and pop this past weekend, as the Ting Tings performed at the Alliance Community Center and The Black Keys took to the stage at the Classic Car Club on Saturday night. Passion Pit also took over the venue, but a night earlier, on Friday. The Microsoft KIN Spot events are raking in Chic’s favorite bands of the moment, bringing you free shows as a part of a major social media experiment. Information about the concert is revealed one juicy detail at a time via Microsoft KIN’s Facebook page, and the final location is announced just hours before the artists go on stage. The social project is named after the Microsoft KIN Spot feature on the KIN phone. The feature lets you share photos, text, web pages, anything at all, by dragging them to a “spot” on your phone. Next up in the series of concerts? Keep a lookout for Dead Weather in Chicago. Let the race to the stage begin! Check out our photo gallery for pictures from the event, and for all the concert happenings, watch the Ting Tings and The Black Keys online.
