Jones looks at the current number one movie in America, Magic Mike XXL , alongside two sexually themed indie comedies, The Overnight and The Little Death , and finds that the latest Channing Tatum vehicle just doesn't measure up.

    Jul 2, 2015 | Chicago Reader

    The serene palette of rich orange, gray, and black and white in Sophie Goldstein's new dystopian graphic novel The Oven contrasts sharply with its setting in a dismal future where young couples are subject to government-policed population control. Protagonists Sydney and Eric-virtually unadorned in the award-winning creator's clean line work-abandon city life for a place that doesn't restrict procreation.

    Jul 2, 2015 | Chicago Reader

    Sat 7/4, 8 AM till 8 PM Jackson Park 63rd and Hayes chosenfewdjs.com $35, $25 in advance All ages South-side DJ collective the Chosen Few, which Wayne Williams founded as a high school student in 1977, played an instrumental role in popularizing disco and house music in Chicago during the late 70s and early 80s - at first, both styles were largely confined to gay clubs. Given the huge influence that house has had on pop's subsequent development, its embryonic years have acquired a mythological glow that rubs off on any artist active in the field at the time - and the Chosen Few have found a way to share their slice of that glory.

  7. Drummer Mark Guiliana steps out as composer and bandleader on his impressive debutRead the original story w/Photo

    Jul 1, 2015 | Chicago Reader

    In the last few years it seems like drummer Mark Guiliana is the musician who's first called when a jazz-oriented project seeks a heavy, forceful groove. Last year he paired with keyboardist Brad Mehldau on the Grammy-nominated Mehliana: Taming the Dragon , a high-profile excursion into texture and rhythm.

  8. Former west-side alderman Rickey 'Hollywood' Hendon makes a comedy videoRead the original story w/Photo

    Jul 1, 2015 | Chicago Reader

    With the state near bankruptcy, Madigan and Rauner at each others' throats, and Mayor Rahm talking about laying off 1,400 teachers, I figured I needed a little levity. I know it sounds strange to look to a former alderman, state senator and committeeman for a break from politics.

Dearbor 312-443-3800 goodmantheatre.org $24-$80 Once upon a time Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike would've been considered the stuff of collegiate spoof - a spiritual cousin to events like the University of Chicago's annual latke vs. hamentaschen debate. Lavishing loads of erudition on a little conceit, the comedy pulls bits from a variety of sources, Aeschylus to Walt Disney, but particularly Anton Chekhov's four theatrical masterpieces .

  10. Going beyond bronies at the recent My Little Pony FairRead the original story w/Photo

    Nov 19, 2013 | Chicago Reader

    One of the best things about Schaumburg, aside from the sheer volume of chain stores with a lower sales tax rate than Chicago's, is its absolute blandness, which makes it really easy to imagine yourself somewhere else - like, say, Ponyville. Hordes of children and also many adults in America and around the world regularly imagine themselves in Ponyville, not just because it's an exceptionally pretty small town with fanciful architecture, perfect weather, and breathtaking natural scenery - forests! mountains! apple orchards! - or because it's inhabited by multicolored talking horses, some with magical powers, but because everyone there is so nice .

    Jul 1, 2015 | Chicago Reader

    Beach Jesus has been on my radar for a short amount of time: I first saw the local hip-hop group only a handful of months ago. But even back then the trio-producer Jarofmy and rappers Chandler London and Jessiath-stitched together rap and electronic pop with poise and purpose.

    Last Tuesday I got an offer to sit on the board of a media company, but it was hard to take the pitch very seriously. I'd only been mingling at the so-called "TechMixer" in a loud River North club for an hour and had been acquainted with the smooth-talking CEO for all of five minutes.

    Jul 1, 2015 | Chicago Reader

    As much as I enjoyed dinner at Dolo Restaurant and Bar, the seafood-focused modern-Chinese restaurant I wrote about on Monday, I was more excited yet to learn that they were open every morning for dim sum. Dim sum is a favorite of mine not only because I love it as comfort food but because under the right conditions, it's a great scene.
