The Dodos, Verizon, Coffee Shop Series
So, the Coffee Shop Series could possibly be our favorite mobile company-independent music partnership yet. Verizon teamed up with local coffee shops to provide free appearances of tip-top Bay Area bands: Port O’Brien next Sunday, and The Dodos this Saturday. There’s a catch: free tickets will only be available during windows at select coffee shops, and no other form of admission will be granted at either event. See the nitty gritty below:

The Dodos at Victoria Theater
Saturday, May 7, 4pm

Free ticket pickup: Four Barrel Coffee (375 Valencia)
Thurs May 6th – 9am-2pm
Fri May 7th – 9am-2pm
Sat May 8th – 9am-2pm

Port O’Brien at Z Space/Artaud
Sunday, May 16, 4pm

Free ticket pickup: Coffee Bar (1890 Bryant)
