Written by Emma Kat Richardson | Friday, 22 March 2013 15:56 |

Yes, Ralphie May is a hilarious comedian. Yes, he's also a "Last Comic Standing" superstar. And yes, he's perhaps just a little bit rotund. But did you know that he also performed at the Gathering of the Juggalos this past year?!

Festival Best Bet: Festival of Faith and Music

Written by Emma Kat Richardson | Friday, 22 March 2013 11:00 |

Having just now reached its 10th year in existence, Calvin College's biennial Festival of Faith and Music has really outdone itself this year in terms of lineup, sponsorship, workshops, and lineup. Oh, did we mention the lineup really kicks a whole lotta faith-based booty, too?

Eclectic Best Bet: Henry Rollins

Written by Lindsay Patton-Carson | Friday, 22 March 2013 10:57 |

While James Franco may be known for publicizing the whole modern-Renaissance-man thing, Henry Rollins did it while Franco was learning cursive. Though he'll always be affectionately known as Black Flag's frontman, Rollins did his own thing (or more appropriately, "things") when he left the band in 1986.

Hey you guys! Guess what's happening on April 27? No, it's not the last day to turn your taxes in – and if you thought it was, well, you're screwed. Something much better, much more monumental is taking place: It's the second birthday of The Pyramid Scheme.

Written by Emma Kat Richardson | Friday, 22 March 2013 10:16 |

After more than 20 years in the public spotlight as a renowned essayist, humorist and all-around lovable weirdo, David Sedaris remains to this day a commanding force who can outsell the Rolling Stones (or close to it) while wielding sharp turns of phrase like a machete.

Indie Best Bet: Andrew Bird

Written by Emma Kat Richardson | Friday, 22 March 2013 10:13 |

Ask one out of any 10 hipsters mulling around these days (aren't they just everywhere, like crab grass? Or nitrogen?) and you could probably find more than a few witnesses willing to testify that seeing Andrew Bird live is like a religious experience.

Hip Hop Best Bet: Kool Keith

Written by Emma Kat Richardson | Thursday, 21 February 2013 10:11 |

So yeah, more than three decades in, and it looks like this whole "hip-hop" thing might actually be catching on after all. Praise be to the heavenly jam-masters that Kool Keith, one of rap's most senior perpetrators, is still around to shake the establishment loose by slicing beats and spitting out choice rhymes.

Eclectic Rock Best Bet: Electric Six

If I could just type out the lyrics to "Danger! High Voltage" in all caps and have it suffice as an acceptable, professionally written piece – buddy, you'd better believe some sparks are emanating off of this newsprint.
