At the wildest concerts, singers have been known to throw themselves into the crowd and end their sentences with prepositions. Be shocked and appalled with this GrouponLive deal to Winter Music Festival 4 at Uncle Fatty's Rum Resort. For $12, you get one general-admission four-day pass for Tuesday, January 29, through Friday, February 1 (up to a $25 value). Doors open at 7 p.m. each night.
Winter Music Festival 4 warms frosty ears with the sweet sounds of ’80s new wave, hair metal, hip-hop, and Top 40 hits spun by three cover bands each night. On Tuesday, The Spazmatics don their pocket protectors and taped glasses for a set of uncanny ’80s new-wave hits such as A-ha’s “Take on Me” and Men at Work’s “Down Under.” Your Villain My Hero headlines Wednesday with crowd-pleasing Top 40 pop sensations by Pink, The Black Eyed Peas, and Outkast, whereas Thursday turns back the clock for Hairbangers Ball, a renowned Windy City cover band that cranks out diesel-fueled tracks by Poison, Guns N’ Roses, and Bon Jovi. Too White Crew joins the party Friday with a raucous tribute to hip-hop's golden age, complete with comely dancers and a 500-stanza hexameter poem.
Uncle Fatty’s Rum Resort
Uncle Fatty’s Rum Resort wards off winter blues with 7,000 square feet of tropical decor, summertime cocktails, and a manmade lava river snaking through the bar. To buttress the beach theme, parties can order a cooler of 12, 24, or 36 brewskies to a table drenched in red and green light. In addition to signature cocktails and fishbowls filled with frozen fruit, ice cream, and chocolate liqueur, the entertainment emporium shelters cover bands that fill audiences’ ears with nostalgia and their mouths with the desire to sing along.
I freaking love to dance and this is definitely a dance friendly place ... Every time I've been here I've had a great time.Lindsay C., Yelp, 4/1/12
