Foo Fighters are having a busy week. After spending a week performing every night for David Letterman on The Late Show, the band’s documentary series Sonic Highways will debut on Friday, Oct. 17. But the band is looking to do more than just celebrate with Lettermanthey’ll be letting fans revel in the excitement.

Dave Grohl and the other fighters will host a premiere party at Chicago’s The Cubby Bear, a venue that plays an important role in the series’ first episode. The band will watch the premiere with fans at the venue and follow it up with a performance. But for those who don’t live in the Chicago area, there is still a way to enjoy the performance.

HBO will stream the event, “Foo Fighters Sonic Highways: Live from The Cubby Bear,” on the channel’s Facebook page immediately following the premiere. At midnight on Friday, Oct. 17, Foo Fighters will perform a concert that includes the first live performance of “Something from Nothing,” a track off their new album, which is also titled Sonic Highways.

Fans can purchase tickets to the concert, and for those who can’t attend in person or to watch the stream, HBO promises the performance will be archived and later available online.
