Transformers 3: Dark Of The Moon (PG-13)

★☆☆☆☆

In this third installment, we learn that the NASA space program was a cover-up that allowed the crew of Apollo 11 to explore the alien ruins on the dark side of the moon. Sam (Shia LaBeouf) returns with a new girlfriend (Rosie Huntington-Whiteley). And once again, the Autobots (our friends) take on the Decepticons (not our friends), with humanity and downtown Chicago caught in the middle. Destruction ensues. Michael Bay continues to offer up soulless and frenetic trash.

Offset Season

You may not have heard of them yet, but local rock ’n’ rollers Offset Season are climbing the ladder of the local music scene. At their June 23 show at the House of Blues, they started with the catchy harmonies and upbeat piano of their new song, “Trans-Atlantic Love.” Before the girls in the crowd were finished screaming, the five guys (plus visiting trumpeter Zac Curtis) got them moving to the beat by playing “Santa Barbara” and “Run,” songs saturated with brass and harmonica. By the end of their set, it was evident why fans love this group of talented musicians.
