Turning his back on the world of corporate labels after being unceremoniously dropped from his own, Arizonian rocker Roger Clyne gathered a trio of likeminded musicians around him to create honest, old-fashioned rock ’n’ roll on their own terms. Lauded by Paste as "proof that the crazy, reckless, restless, swaggering soul of American rock is still burning a hole in the night sky," Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers tour the nation delighting fans and trying to pay off the night sky's insurance claims. Chief songwriter Clyne belts out lyrics with a Southwestern-tinged drawl, backed by the string-tickling skills of lead axman Jim Dalton. Longtime Clyne collaborator P.H. Naffah unleashes thunderous drum beats while Nick Scropos rounds out the group’s sound with churning bass. Coming off the 2011 release of its latest album, Unida Cantina, the group mixes new hits such as "All Over the Radio" with such time-honored fan favorites as "Banditos."
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.
