Razz Na$-T Shoots ‘Planet Cracker’ Video

Written by Eric Mitts | Thursday, 04 August 2016 08:24 |

When REVUE got a hold of Grand Rapids rapper Razz Na$-T earlier this summer, he was gearing up for a life-altering trip to Las Vegas. 

However, his destination wasn’t just the alluring glitz of the Vegas strip — it was the natural splendor of Lake Tahoe, the site of his latest music video.

“Just know that it involves motorcycles, a devil and a demon, the desert, clear water, blue skies, and of course California evergreens,” said Razz, aka Riley Dean. “The rest is a surprise.”

Written by Eric Mitts | Tuesday, 02 August 2016 12:07 |

Lollapalooza celebrated its 25th Anniversary this weekend with four full days of live music that featured more than 170 acts on eight stages. It has exploded in size and scope since its beginning in 1991, swelling to a capacity crowd of 100,000 every year, while also developing an internationally-recognized reputation that reaches well beyond Chicago — or even the U.S. — with Lolla having spawned spinoffs in Chile, Argentina, Brazil, and Germany over the past decade. Here’s a quick list of our biggest takeaways from Lolla’s landmark year.

Breaking the Rules: How Wild Child Refuses to Conform

Written by Dwayne Hoover | Friday, 29 July 2016 09:08 |

True to their name, Wild Child refuses to run with the pack or worry much about the traditional business side of music. It doesn’t jive with the Austin-based indie-pop band’s artistic process – so they go their own way. 

“When it comes to that side of the music industry, we all just kind of freeze up,” said Kelsey Wilson, lead vocalist and violinist of the seven-piece outfit. “We can write a song a day and play a show a day for the rest of our lives, but the other side of things is just so foreign.”

Billy Strings Moves from Traverse City to Music City

Written by Dwayne Hoover | Friday, 29 July 2016 08:46 |

With a youthful and punk-fueled exuberance, picking and vocal capabilities that seem well beyond his years, and a heart steeped in traditional music, a live performance by William Apostol (aka Billy Strings) is truly an experience.  High energy meets raw talent in an electrifying, twangy and sometimes dizzying way.

Apostol has made quite a name for himself in the bluegrass scene as a gifted guitarist out of Traverse City. He’s spent the last couple of years touring heavily with mandolinist Don Julin and playing the music he was brought up on as a kid. In late 2015, however, Apostol announced he was parting ways with Julin and moving to Nashville to embark on his solo career.

The Detroit duo JR JR’s (formerly known as Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr.) hit single has gone viral since its 2015 release, racking up over 15 million plays on Spotify and landing everywhere from alt-rock radio to the trailer for the upcoming comedy Sausage Party.
