    Channel your inner rock star at this charity event.

    Cheap drinks, good cause, win win.

    Bust out your converse and hit up Joe's on Weed Street for "Rock Star for a Night," a charity event that lets you sing along, on stage, with a five-piece band -- all to benefit Special Olympics Chicago.

    For $15, watch famed Chicago dance rock band Dot Dot Dot perform their electrifying set, enjoy $5 martinis, bid on a super cool silent auction (schwag autographed by The Fray, Incubus and Franz Ferdinand), and most gnarly of all, get a chance to perform with the band yourself.

    Potential rock stars can bid online to sing songs at the event starting at $20 and up. Choose from hits like Beyonce's "Single Ladies," M.I.A.'s "Paper Planes" or "Sex on Fire" by Kings of Leon.

    Purchase tickets and view the complete list of available songs at www.rockstarforanight.com. Online bidding has closed but guests can bid on songs at the event up until 11 p.m.

    Give back. And rock out.

    Jessica, founder and Music editor of CheekyChicago.com, is going to convince her very talented friends to sing on Saturday because she herself is tone deaf.
