Afternoon Delight

Three o’clock on a Wednesday afternoon. What are you usually doing? Downing coffee in your cubicle in the hopes of jolting yourself out of the usual midafternoon slump? Refreshing PerezHilton.com for the third time in the past hour? Looking at the clock and wishing it read 5:00 p.m.? Not today, dude. If you’re a music lover, tell your boss you’re suddenly feeling sick. Fresh off an opening gig for the Police last night, Maroon 5 will be putting on a rare, intimate acoustic performance in the middle of the frickin’ afternoon.

The offbeat timing is part of an effort to put on a kick-ass makeup gig for ticket holders to the Grammy-winning band’s previously canceled July 10 show. Consequently all original ticket holders will receive a refund at the point of purchase, plus entrance to the show. But for the scrubs who missed the boat the first time and are finally grooving to “Makes Me Wonder” from the group’s recently released second album, It Won't Be Soon Before Long, we’re sure there are a few tickets left. They cost $30 apiece, but you can work out the details with your friendly neighborhood scalper. Be there or be square.
Wed., July 11, 3 p.m.
