Stroke 9 and Bottle of Justus
- How you know Stroke 9: they sang the 1999 hit that launched a thousand proms, “Little Black Backpack”
- What makes that song a classic: that punchy earworm of a chorus, which details a fistfight with a piece of luggage—or maybe it’s a metaphor
- Other, backpack-free hits: “Letters” and “Kick Some A**,” featured in Kevin Smith’s Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back
- Fan service: they release their albums directly to listeners through their own label, and often share tracks for free
- Supporting act: Bottle of Justus, whose rocking sound inspired Wesley Willis to record a song about them fighting a llama
- You know Sebastian best as: the original voice of Skid Row
- And perhaps you’ve seen him: setting Broadway ablaze as the leading men in Jekyll & Hyde and Jesus Christ Superstar, or breaking your heart on Gilmore Girls
- His vocal range: climbs higher that a Sherman tank mowing up a rainbow
- Hits that prove that point: the lighter-fluid ballad “I Remember You” and the barn-burner “Youth Gone Wild”
- What to expect: top-shelf wailing, a slab of Skid Row hits, and hard rocking solo material
The Cubby Bear
Stationed across the street from Wrigley Field for nearly 50 years, the Cubby Bear is an institution for game-day drinking. No matter the season, Cubby Bear's 75 plasma screens and five projection screen TVs air sports to the Wrigley crowd who sate themselves on domestic beers and familiar bar eats, including hot dogs and garlicky fries. The 30,000-square-foot venue's ample dance floor comes alive at night when DJs and performers take the stage, churning out jams that range in style from alternative rock to funk to Top 40.
