    Free show alert for Windy City rock fans.

    American Family Insurance is partnering with Alabama Shakes to present an exclusive "Dream Show" for music fans in Chicago on September 11, featuring a full headlining set from the band alongside two up-and-coming acts, each of which were handpicked by the band to share the bill.

    American Family Insurance is offering fans the opportunity to experience the memorable evening. As of now, music lovers 21-and-over can RSVP for the free event by liking the American Family Insurance Facebook page to gain exclusive access to the triple-bill concert, taking place at Subterranean music venue in Wicker Park, Chicago.

    "Dreams and the pursuit of dreams are an important part of all of our lives. American Family Insurance is dedicated to not only protecting dreams, but to inspiring people to pursue those dreams," said Telisa Yancy, American Family Insurance's advertising director. "Seeing a band at this level play for free in an intimate venue, that's a dream for many music lovers. Alabama Shakes brings together music fans of all genres, and their selection of two of their favorite emerging bands furthers the dreams of other musicians who seek a similar level of achievement."

    Alabama Shakes were invited to personally select two breakout artists to share the stage: Doc Dailey and the Pollies both hail from the Shakes' home state of Alabama and share a similar Americana sound.

    "Doing what we love for a living is already a dream for us, but playing with friends and fellow musicians from Alabama is even better," said Alabama Shakes frontwoman Brittany Howard.

    Only users who like American Family Insurance are eligible to enter. Space is limited. RSVP does not guarantee admission. This is a 21+ event. Twitter: #dreamshow.
