  • Neutral Milk Hotel to Play Kalamazoo State Theatre Neutral Milk Hotel to Play Kalamazoo State Theatre

     

    There was a time when we thought we'd never hear new music from Neutral Milk Hotel ever again. The critically acclaimed indie band disbanded shortly after the release of its successful album, In the Aeroplane Over the Sea, which includes "Holland, 1945," No. 7 on Pitchfork's list of Top 200 Tracks from the 1990s.

    Competition thrives in all of us. A good arm wrestle with a buddy, touch football on a summer day or a hard-core dance off, with the latter happening at the Pyramid Scheme.

  • Justin Townes Earle’s Country Bloodlines Run Deep Justin Townes Earle’s Country Bloodlines Run Deep

    While describing the influx of businessmen and record executives migrating from Los Angeles to his Nashville hometown, Justin Townes Earle emanates frustration. “It’s colonialism," he said. "The TV show 'Nashville'has made it sound like we are enjoying this new-found reputation. But if you ask me, we already had a pretty damn good one.”

  • Alamo Drafthouse Kalamazoo Rolls Out Holiday Programming Alamo Drafthouse Kalamazoo Rolls Out Holiday Programming

    With last year's infamous polar vortex looming fresh in West Michigan's collective conscious, it's safe to say some locals are entering into the winter season with a sense of apprehension. Sledding and making snowmen are fun and all, but so is being able to actually get out of your driveway in the morning. To soothe your worries about the impending blizzards, why not take a trip to the theatre and lose yourself in some seasonal cinema?

  • Mike Green Brings the Laughs with His (Mostly) Clean Humor Mike Green Brings the Laughs with His (Mostly) Clean Humor

    If you need living proof you don't need a foul mouth to be funny, look no further than comedian Mike Green. Sure, he may not be quite as squeaky clean as when he first got onstage at age 14 to MC a church talent show and crack a few jokes, but he certainly drops far fewer f-bombs than most of his contemporaries.

  • Michigan Brown Ale Face-Off Michigan Brown Ale Face-Off

    The lowly brown ale never receives the love or fervent adulations that many other popular beer styles get. But that doesn’t mean that craft beer lovers should pass over brown ales. In fact, they’re often very balanced beers with malty, earthy, nutty and rich flavors. They’re also a beer that tends to be somewhat on the sweet side.

  • Indie Best Bet: Over The Rhine Indie Best Bet: Over The Rhine

    While Ohio appears to be a toenail on Michigan’s foot, our favorite southerly neighbor/presidential election ruiner sure has produced a fair amount of beyond-excellent musicians. One such is Cincinnati's Over the Rhine, the husband and wife duo of Linford Detweiler and Karin Bergquist, which has been cranking out thick, hearty, Midwestern folk rock since the late ‘80s.

  • Comedy Best Bet: The Trailer Park Boys Comedy Best Bet: The Trailer Park Boys

    Each and every December, countless television specials, movies, concerts and almost every conceivable type of media devout hours to the age-old question: What is the true meaning of Christmas?

  • Folk Best Bet: The Lone Bellow Folk Best Bet: The Lone Bellow

    If Brooklyn insists on continuing to churn out titans of alt-pop culture, we might just have to consider packing up Revue HQ and heading over to Williamsburg. Just kidding! As much as we love the skinny-jeans central hub of NYC, we’d die if we ever abandoned our beloved Western Michiganders.

  • Rock Best Bet: Bob Seger Rock Best Bet: Bob Seger

     OK, y’all. If you have any shred of respect left for your upstanding Michigander self, you WILL be at this Bob Seger concert. Why? Why? Have you no sense of Detroit rock decency? This is the great-granddaddy of all things Motown madness, and if you haven’t managed to catch the Seeg live before, now’s perhaps one of your final chances to bask in legendary light.

  • Alexis to Release Love or Temptation Alexis to Release Love or Temptation

    If you look up Conklin, Mich., on Google Maps, you’ll see a post office, Fenian’s Irish Pub and not a whole lot else. Tucked between some utilitarian-looking shops and a dusty grain elevator, Fenian’s isn’t really where you’d peg a celebrated West Michigan synth-pop group to have come to life.
