Jimmy Buffett

Wherever its 5 o'clock and you're in a flock of Parrotheads, it's "Margaritaville" time with Jimmy Buffett. This weekend it will be at First Midwest Bank Amphitheatre, where Buffett will perform the songs that make his fans want to retire to Florida, while those on the outside look in amazement at why there is such a perpetual craze for Buffett's music. It's escapism, man. Chill. Have a good time. And, what you might find behind the kitschy songs is solid folk rock. Why go: Anyone who duets with the Zac Brown Band is OK with us. Reconsider: And which of the Beach Boys is Buffett? 8 p.m. Saturday at First Midwest Bank Amphitheatre, 19100 S. Ridgeland, Tinley Park; $45-$160; livenation.com
