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

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
