Share with Twitter Share with LinkedIn

NEW YORK, Sept. 29, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Heineken Light stopped traffic in Chicago as its "Occasionally Perfect" Billboard had its evening of perfection.

In the heart of Wrigleyville, the billboard was transformed into a stage with a surprise, live performance by Canadian indie-rock music collective Broken Social Scene.

Thousands of Chicagoans witnessed the band perform a spontaneous, high-energy, 30-minute set, treating the crowd to a series of hits, including "7/4 (Shoreline)," "Anthems For A Seventeen-Year Old Girl," and "World Sick."  Check out footage of performance at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NZp0jV2bjso.

Chicago's billboard is the latest installment of the ongoing Heineken Light "Occasionally Perfect" campaign, which launched earlier this summer with TV, digital and live events, including a NYC-based concert by TV on the Radio in Manhattan's NoHo neighborhood
