CHICAGO, June 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The July issue of Chicago magazine features a dozen pages of everything Chicagoans need to know, hear, and see during the city's most exciting music season, including critics' picks of the best shows in every genre. The Ultimate Summer Music Guide showcases hometown gospel great (and cover subject) Mavis Staples, includes a busy person's guide to Pitchfork and Lollapolooza, highlights the faces of Chicago's exploding rap scene, and offers much more. Plus: a map of 10 not-to-miss events taking place during Make Music Chicago, the Loop's solstice celebration on Saturday, June 21, which includes 200 performances across 80 locations during a 12-hour span.
On newsstands Thursday, the issue also takes a deep dive into the tragic story of the late Josh Marks, who had been a rising culinary star. After finishing as runner-up on Gordon Ramsay's reality cooking show MasterChef, the Washington Heights native seemed to be on his way to making it big. Then, suddenly, his life began to spiral out of control, including multiple run-ins with the police, bizarre behavior, a diagnosis of paranoid schizophrenia, and, ultimately, his suicide last October at the age of 26. In The Voices in Josh Marks' Head, Chicago documents the rapid descent of Marks and the frustrating struggle of his family to find adequate mental-health help for him.
