This Rock Father™ Rides Special Feature is presented in collaboration with Chevrolet, the Official Vehicle of Major League Baseball...

Every team wants to play October baseball. Thing is, if you want to hit the field during the month of pumpkins and hayrides, September baseball is where it's at - a month that can absolutely make or break a season. As the final stretch of the five-month regular season, it's entirely possible for strong teams to collapse while traditionally bad teams can score a spot in the playoffs... weird stuff happens, and rivalries often come into play. Living in Northern Illinois, we're surrounded by rival factions. Of course, the Chicago Cubs reign supreme, but we're almost the exact distance from Wrigley Field as we are from Milwaukee's Miller Park, and now we have a year where the Cubs and Brewers are fighting for the top spot in the National League Central Division (spoiler alert: Cubs will come out on top). That means we regularly hear about a Milwaukee/Chicago rivalry, but we seldom actually see it. Why? Go to a Brewers game and experience it... Cubs fans outnumber the hometown crowd about 5-1 (some say 2-1, but it's more). In fact, Miller Park has the unwelcome nickname of "Wrigley Field North" when the Cubs are in town, but the ball club takes full advantage of that fact, jacking rates on parking and the like to take advantage of their neighbors to the south (can't say I blame them). With September baseball getting good, my wife and I recently had a "grownups night out" with a couple of friends, hitting the road to experience Wrigley North for ourselves.

"It's not a festival, it's a party." That's the mantra for THE REVIVAL, three days of music, camping, food and refreshments, back for its 8th Annual run, this year in the fields of Maple Park, Illinois September 6-8 (get tix). Nearly 40 bands will take the stage during the 2018 edition of The Revival, which will also include an acoustic bonfire each night, movies after dark, metal yoga, a 50' obstacle course, "dunk a promoter," mechanical bull, a roaming sideshow performer and more. Among the bands performing, DIRTY REGGAE PUNX will topline the opening night festivities, with ANOTHER LOST YEAR capping off Friday night and PRODUCT OF HATE closing out The Revival on Saturday. What's exciting about The Revival is that all tickets (available via Eventbrite) are general admission and include free food and camping! Look at it this way, everyone is a VIP!
