We've compiled a handful of narratives for you from the weekend's criminal goings-on at the First Midwest Bank Amphitheatre in Tinley Park. Oh, and we have the mug shots, to boot.
It's no secret that it can get a little rowdy at the First Midwest Bank Amphitheatre in Tinley Park. We've pulled the weekend's rabble-rousers into this handy dandy roundup of off-the-wall—and often (allegedly) drunken—shenanigans. This list may not be complete, as police reports often roll in several days after the actual arrests. But it's up-to-date as of 6 p.m. Aug. 22. If we find more hooligans, we'll add ’em during the week. Tinley Park police nabbed two out-of-towners who they said made a dash for the limelight Saturday night. Mark T. Klimasara, 21, of Alsip, was arrested around 11 p.m. Aug. 20 and charged with attempted criminal trespassing to a place of public amusement. Police said that around 10:45 p.m., Klimasara climbed over a …

Classic folk and rock, new details about John Wilkes Booth, Neil Simon's 'Biloxi Blues,' a musical 'Some Like It Hot' and how a bullet changed a life are a great start to summer arts and entertainment calendar.
Roger McGuinn, the legendary 1960s rock icon, Chicago native and original member of the Byrds, returns to Beverly Arts Center with his wonderfully soft yet powerful voice for an evening of most memorable song and conversation. SouthScene spoke with McGuinn this week about his music, life and concerts. For starters, his last name is pronounced McGwinn. "That's how our family has always said it," McGuinn said. He was born Jim McGuinn, but during the rock era, a guru urged him to change it to Roger, a better fit with the universe. Asked if he still follows the guru, McGuinn explained, "No, I've returned to a more personal relationship with God, Jesus." Asked about the 1960s before the Byrds were universally recognized, McGuinn recalled the …

Celestial sounds of Mahler, Mozart, Bach and Rachmaninoff complete Illinois Philharmonic Orchestra's April concert program.
Why call a symphony concert—an event that's usually a spotlight for musical instruments—Heavenly Voice? “Oh, that’s easy to clarify,” said Carmen DeLeone, Illinois Philharmonic Orchestra (IPO) music director. Much of the concert focuses on concepts and impressions of celestial places, and one of the key pieces explores composer-conductor Gustav Mahler’s look at heaven through the eyes of a child, he said. Add a guest soloist to the mix, and the title is quite apt. The entire program grew around DeLeone’s and the IPO artistic committee’s decision, nearly two years ago, to recognize the 150th anniversary of Mahler’s birth (1860) and 100th year since his death (1911) during the current symphony season. Although other recent IPO performances …
