Common Concert - Free For Locals Only


NBC is changing the way it delivers information. This month was the roll out of "Locals Only," a website that focuses on providing relevant news, information and entertainment to specific communities i.e. Chicago, Boston, Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco rather than providing news for a certain region.

"NBC's new plan will eliminate the link between its TV stations and their respective Web sites and will target a city's specific online community to help locals stay on top of the latest news and information in their area, regardless of the source. In fact, much of the content on the sites will be gathered from outside content providers or contributed by the audience itself through videos, blogs, and text."


According to NBC Local Media's senior vice president, Brian Buchwald, the new sites will target a group of people NBC is calling "social capitalists" who are passionate about their city and want to "stay ahead of the curve and influence others in their peer groups." Source: CNET


As part of the roll out to promote the new website, NBC is hosting a FREE Concert. Who is the featured artist? None other than Rap Artist Common (seen recently in this badass music video w Pharrell). Recently you may have seen a television commercial advertising a FREE "Common" concert on NBC. Throughout the commercial there is an overlay of text running across the screen, "free Common concert, for locals only, if you can find it." Well your friends at FoundTrack have found the link and are sharing it with you. Click Here for FREE CONCERT CONTEST LINK !

The contest is pretty simple. You are given four pictures of different "Hoods" around the Los Angeles area. The challenge: You must name the "Hood" of each picture provided. Each day, the first 10 individuals to answer correctly will be emailed the location and time of the FREE concert. Sounds easy? See how well you know your "Hood!"
