Described as “the soundtrack of the 20th century,” the music of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers is timeless work. Free Fallin, a tribute band based out of Minnesota, has brought the music of Tom Petty to audiences across the country for 10 years. Their next stop—Blue Chip Casino. Before Free Fallin hits the stage on April 6th, we spoke with the drummer, owner, and manager of the band, Mark Larsen.
We love music at Ideas in Motion Media. In fact, most days in the office are spent with the radio on for Lifers to write good news to! We know which genres our staff are into, but we wanted to see what other music that our friends in Northwest Indiana enjoy. That's why we asked our followers on Facebook what their most memorable concert was that they've ever been to and where the concert was held (since we're near so many wonderful music venues being so close to the city).
Blue Chip Casino, Hotel & Spa, 777 Blue Chip Drive, Michigan City, Indiana, presents Free Fallin: A Tribute to the Memory of Tom Petty on Friday, April 6 at 8 pm CT in the Stardust Event Center.
When Star Wars Episode 4: A New Hope arrived in theaters on May 25th, 1977, it became an instant hit. Millions of people went to see the first chapter of this captivating saga and, over the next few years, continued to see each movie as it premiered. Filled with amazing characters we can all connect with, an action-packed plot, and an inspiring message of hope and light triumphing over the dark, Star Wars has become one of the most successful franchises of all time, just behind series like Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and James Bond.
Winter in Northwest Indiana is enough to make anyone want to crawl under the covers until May. Binge-watching is a must for those unbelievably cold, dark days, so here’s a line-up of all of the awesome series hitting T.V. and streaming this spring.
Lake Central High School hosted its annual Winter Band Concert in its auditorium Tuesday evening to a great crowd of friends and family.

Rick Erwin Media’S one hour documentary “Going Rolling” is a unique look at the town of Rolling Prairie, it’s history and people that lived, thrived and prospered during the town’s heydays between 1920 and 1960 when this sleepy little town’s main road, U.S. Route Twenty ran right through the downtown district from Chicago to New York City. At one time Rolling Prairie had three grocery stores, thirteen gas stations and a world class restaurant, The Peacock Fountain Inn that served travelers such as Bob Hope and Clark Gable. Just passing through with a camera, Erwin talked and filmed many of the town’s residents who still remembered the 1920’s, the great depression and a simpler life as folks moved throughout the region on their cracky wagons.
There’s a lot of content on Netflix. A lot. So, to make your life easier, I’ve tried to compile a list that pulls from a little bit of each category and should give anybody somewhere to start when trying to make the most out of the streaming service. Fair warning, it is a little on the nerdy side though, which is hard to avoid when cherry picking from the vast streaming oasis that is Netflix.
