Rocking Out Near The Ball Park

Tickets are now on sale for the Chicago edition of Hot Stove Cool Music being presented by Google, True Value, KPMG, and Chicago Trading Company on June 7 at Metro. The annual baseball/rock and roll mashup helps Chicago Cubs President of Operations Theo Epstein, his brother Paul, and award-winning sportswriter Peter Gammons raise funds for the Foundation To Be Named Later. The Foundation is dedicated to “improving lives through education, leadership and the healthy development of youth and families.”

Theo Epstein and Chicago Cubs broadcaster Len Kasper will be rocking with the Chicago All-Stars, while Peter Gammons, Bernie Williams, Jake Peavy and Will Dailey perform as the Boston All-Stars.
The evening will also feature WXRT morning personality and long-time Cubs fan Lin Brehmer and former Cubs pitcher Ryan Dempster as emcees, and the Chicago Children’s Choir. And it should be a blast to see Band Of Their Own, which includes members of The Bangles, Belly, Letters To Cleo, The Flat Five, and Blake Babies, jamming on a number of hit songs. Metro is located just down the street from Wrigley Field.
