A focal point of the Beverly/Morgan Park neighborhoods, the family-friendly Beverly Arts Center offers an array of classes, lectures, foreign films, art exhibitions and a 400-seat theater. Though that space hosts numerous local acts, national touring artists also make regular visits. New Orleans' polymath, folk-inspired rockers the Subdudes have made a bigger national name through appearances on the HBO series "Treme." While the group is on hiatus, singer Tommy Malone will perform here Aug. 12. Bonus: The best sweet potato pies in North America are nearby at Jimmy Jamm, 1844 W. 95th St.
Tommy Malone: 8 p.m. Aug. 12, Beverly Arts Center, 2407 W. 111th St.; $22; 773-445-0386, beverlyartcenter.org
