You Can Read It In The Sunday Papers

Pretend it's the graphic for the Hollywood Casino show in Tinley Park.

The Who’s Moving On tour comes to the Chicago area tomorrow night for a concert at the Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre in Tinley Park. According to an article by Jeff Elbel in last Friday’s Chicago Sun-Times, Pete Townshend and Roger Daltry will likely perform bits from Tommy and Quadrophenia, along with a selection of deep album tracks. A new album—The Who’s Tommy Orchestral—is due out next month, and these guys have also been working on songs for the first new Who album in over 10 years.

I mentioned last Friday that critically acclaimed singer-guitarist Courtney Barnett will be one of the headliners at this year’s Taste Of Chicago, which runs July 10 – 14. There will also be a full schedule of local acts rocking on the Goose Island Stage, according to Chicago Tribune writer Jessi Roti. Another highlight for those who don’t bother with the food at Taste but enjoy the entertainment will be the debut of a Theatre Garden garden featuring shows by Second City and other Chicago-based theatre groups.

Yesterday’s edition of the ChicagoSun-Times included a 63-page special magazine titled Walk This Way - Straight ahead: Your guide to the perfect Chicago summer. It lists several art shows and concerts coming up in the next few (hopefully warmer) months.

Knock, knock, knocking down shots of Heaven’s Door. There’s a full-page ad in this month’s edition of Michigan Avenue for Bob Dylan’s new line of whiskeys, Heaven’s Door. It sounds like a National Lampoon bit, but this posh magazine isn’t known for satire. “We wanted to create a collection of whiskeys, that in their own way, tell a story,” Dylan is quoted in the ad copy. The tag is, HANDCRAFTED, AWARD-WINNING. UNCOMPROMISING. Not sure if that refers to the alcohol or Bob.
