Sticky Fingers frontman Dylan Frost is a regular guest at promoter Pato Alvarez’s family home. Life’s not all rock ’n’ roll, and sometimes the famously raucous singer just likes to hang out with the crew.

This winter, Dylan (pictured middle) spent his downtime between shows climbing the Mount, teaching Pato’s sons Alexander and Camilo how to play the guitar, and screaming around the track at Bay Karts to let off steam. Now he and the rest of Sticky Fingers are back for what’s bound to be a bring-the-house-down performance at Bay Dreams on January 2.
