OK Go to Play The Warfield for FutureStack14—and You Could Meet Them!

The awesome conference program and insightful lineup of speakers aren’t the only reasons to attend New Relic’s annual technology and user conference. We want you to unleash your best dance moves and come party with us at our epic kickoff party.

Last year’s amazing party featured Cake (see pictures at the end of this post), but we’ve outdone ourselves this year by booking the fearlessly fun and creative band OK Go—best known for their intricate viral videos—to play for us live at The Warfield, San Francisco’s iconic music venue on the evening of October 8th, 2014.

Best of all, five lucky registrants to FutureStack14 this week will get the chance to meet the band in person backstage after their set—and get a signed copy of their new album, Hungry Ghosts! Just register by midnight next Tuesday, September 16, to be eligible.

The perfect complement to FutureStack14’s focus on people doing beautiful, important things with data and software, OK Go has worked with everyone from giant technology companies to pioneering dance troupes—and even Muppets—helping to dissolve creative boundaries every step of the way. Here’s what the band looks and sounds like live on the Jimmy Kimmel Show:

Currently on tour to promote Hungry Ghosts, OK Go will play for FutureStack14 attendees at the Warfield Theater in downtown San Francisco. Built in 1922 as a vaudeville and movie palace, the opulent Warfield has been a premier concert venue since 1979, when it hosted a two-week residency by Bob Dylan. In the decades since then, the Warfield stage has been graced by any number of world-class artists ranging from Adele to Prince.

The FutureStack13 kickoff party was super-exciting, and the FutureStack14 version promises to be even more memorable, and if you register by Tuesday night, you could score a once-in-a-lifetime chance to meet OK Go backstage! Get your Beta ticket now and save $100 before September 21!

As promised, here are a couple pictures of last year’s party:
