There wasn't an official competition, but we feel pretty confident in declaring Uncle Fatty's Rum Resort the king of all cover-band bars in Chicago (step up your game, Joe's). Hot on the heels of its Winter Music Fest featuring cover bands from around the city, the island-themed establishment introduces "WTF Wednesdays" tonight, featuring the musical stylings of The Cover Kings, an all-star cover band formed from the city's top cover bands (Hairbangers Ball, Mike and Joe, '80s Proof). This is the cream of the crop, folks.
The band will perform two sets beginning at 9 p.m., and members of other professional cover bands can sign up for a jam session beginning at 8 p.m. Specials include $2 domestic beers and $2 well drinks. Not surprisingly, there's a cover charge: $4.
