Comedy Best Bet: Kathleen Madigan

Written by Emma Kat Richardson | Wednesday, 23 January 2013 15:56 |

For a comedian who can boast the ringing endorsement of Lewis Black, not to mention a 20-year-plus career as an outstanding stand-up, Kathleen Madigan has spent much of her time not in the direct glare of the popular spotlight, but rather beneath the fringes of comedy greatness.

Eclectic Best Bet: Los Lobos

Written by Emma Kat Richardson | Wednesday, 23 January 2013 15:54 |

Los Lobos were responsible for one of the biggest hits of my early childhood, "La Bamba," and much to my surprise have continued to keep a pop cultural toe in the Tex-Mex, folk, country and R&B worlds.

Rock Best Bet: Matchbox Twenty

Written by Emma Kat Richardso | Wednesday, 23 January 2013 15:51 |

It's 3 a.m., you must be lonely. You wanna push stuff around. You know what you need? No, not that ninth shot of whiskey from the bottom of a steel-stained flask. Why don't you shelve the booze and help yourself to some matchbox twenty tickets instead?

Folk Best Bet: Suzanne Vega

Written by Emma Kat Richardson | Wednesday, 23 January 2013 15:45 |

What a retro month February has been. Between the reemergence of matchbox twenty and now songstress Suzanne Vega's upcoming performance at Kalamazoo Valley Community College, we're stumbling blindly through a foggy bliss of never-ending nostalgia.

Eclectic Best Bet: William Shatner

Written by Lindsay Patton | Thursday, 20 December 2012 12:57 |

He's a spoken-word artist, pals with Henry Rollins and enemies with Twitter star George Takei. He also played one of the most iconic roles in television history. I'm talking about James Tiberius Kirk.

Theater Best Bet: Les Miserables

Written by Emma Kat Richardson | Thursday, 20 December 2012 12:53 |

Perk up your ear drums and get ready to have your world so thoroughly rocked you'll be speaking French fluently for a week. (But the catch is you'll only be able to utter Franco phrases pertaining to overthrowing the money-grubbing establishment and/or being a prostitute.)

Rock Best Bet: Grace Potter and the Nocturnals

Written by Emma Kat Richardson | Thursday, 20 December 2012 12:39 |

With its most recent effort, The Lion The Beast The Beat, indie darlings Grace Potter and the Nocturnals have taken the notion of a masterful concept album and really made it rumble.

Comedy Best Bet: Bill Cosby

Written by Lindsay Patton | Thursday, 20 December 2012 12:26 |

Let's take a moment to think about what life would be like without Bill Cosby. Instead of year-round Cosby sweater parties, we'd only have once-yearly ugly Christmas sweater parties.

Soul Best Bet: Aretha Franklin

Written by Emma Kat Richardson | Thursday, 20 December 2012 12:09 |

Sure, America might technically be a monarchy-hating democracy, but c'mon, we all know there's a queen in charge, and has been for quite some time. And I'm not talking about Michelle Obama here.

Zac Brown Band: An ‘Uncaged’ Sound

Written by Jessica Smith | Wednesday, 24 October 2012 09:33 |

Zac Brown Band is still full of love, peace and chicken grease, but the band’s new tour crosses genre boundaries and pushes limits of musicianship. Zac Brown Band’s latest album, Uncaged, combines its trademark vocals with spine-tingling instrumentals.
