Indie Best Bet: Phox

Written by Emma Kat Richardson | Monday, 26 January 2015 17:14 |

So, what exactly is “Phox,” anyway? A new workout craze? A Hunger Games character? One of the forgotten Palin children? No – in this case, the Phox in question is one of the most buzzed-about indie pop bands of the new year. 

Why? Best Bet: Nickelback

Written by Emma Kat Richardson | Monday, 26 January 2015 17:12 |

Look, we here at Revue like to think we know our West Michigan readership pretty damn well at this point. Is anyone out there actually wetting their pants at the prospect of seeing Nickelback live? Yeah, didn’t think so.

Local Best Bet: The Jammies 16

Written by Lindsay Patton | Monday, 26 January 2015 16:54 |

When you think about it, 16 really isn't that sweet. Sure, you can drive, but there is all this pressure to fit in, mom and dad won't let you borrow the car and that guy from art class asked someone else to the winter dance. Just us? OK. 

BEST BETS: The Grand Rapids Symphony gives a nod to Oscar winners and nominees

Written by REVUE Staff | Thursday, 22 January 2015 15:22 |

If you were like any red-blooded American child, Beauty and the Beast was your jam - probably one of your favorite Disney animated movies. There is still time to re-capture your youth and check out all those crazy cats live on stage. Lindsay Patton-Carson has your hook-up, plus a ton more in this week's best bets.

Blues Best Bet: Selwyn Birchwood

Written by Emma Kat Richardson | Monday, 22 December 2014 16:46 |

Hey, you. What do you have going on this boring Sunday night? Chances are, not much. Instead, see a raw, authentic bluesman that will sex-up your ear canals with some intense, juicy guitar twanging.

Pop Best Bet: Motion City Soundtrack

Written by Emma Kat Richardson | Monday, 22 December 2014 16:44 |

These 10 years past, it’s been hard to forget about the, well, soundtrack that guided us through our young adult transitional lives. With Commit This To Memory’s decade anniversary, the Minneapolis-based quintet is celebrating more than just a recording career milestone.

Classic Rock Best Bet: Fleetwood Mac

Written by Emma Kat Richardson | Monday, 22 December 2014 16:42 |

Return of the Mac. Return of the Mac. As devoted ‘90s lyrics enthusiasts, we had an inkling he might be back. But we never guessed that she would be back as well; that is, Christie McVie, the longstanding hold out on the much-buzzed about Fleetwood Mac reunion tour.

BEST BETS: A country Christmas and holiday hijinks with Audria Larsen

Written by REVUE Staff and Minions | Thursday, 18 December 2014 11:15 |

This week, Lindsay brought in Audria Larsen of Super Happy Funtime Burlesque, which just returned from tour and will hit both Holland and Grand Rapids with fun holiday-themed show this weekend. Larsen provided a glimpse on what to expect along with divulging her family's favorite holiday traditions. In addition to that, a country favorite returns home to Kalamazoo on Saturday night to perform at the State Theatre for a special Christmas show. Also, the UICA has a very unique film festival on tap for tonight.

Indie Best Bet: Over The Rhine

Written by Emma Kat Richardson | Sunday, 30 November 2014 21:38 |

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.
