Sludge Rock Best Bet: Torche

Written by Josh Spanninga | Thursday, 26 February 2015 00:00 |

Miami-based sludge rock giants Torche have made a career of mixing the badass with the, er, bizarre. The band's 2012 album, Harmonicraft, features candy-chomping, rainbow-puking mystical goat dragons fighting amidst the clouds on the cover. 

Country Best Bet: Miranda Lambert

Written by Emma Kat Richardson | Monday, 02 March 2015 00:00 |

We can’t be entirely sure yet, but it does appear that perhaps Miranda Lambert is trying to be country music’s answer to Kanye. While there may not be any speech-interrupting moments from Ms. L, she certainly has that proud swagger part down pat.

Rock Best Bet: Heart / Joan Jett

Written by Emma Kat Richardson | Monday, 02 March 2015 00:00 |

What?! Did you read this lineup? What ISSSSS this madness? Heart AND Joan Jett? How are we even going to be able to stop our (black)hearts from exploding before this unbelievably amazing thing comes to pass?

Folk Best Bet: Drive-By Truckers

Written by Emma Kat Richardson | Monday, 02 March 2015 00:00 |

Over the years, the mid-sized town of Athens, Georgia has produced an inordinate amount of stupidly talented musicians. You know, bands you may have heard of, like R.E.M. and the B-52s.

BEST BETS: Cars, music and...ballet, of course

Written by REVUE Staff | Thursday, 05 February 2015 10:20 |

Fast cars. Loud music. Yea, we know what you like West Michigan, and Lindsay-Patton Carson is going to tell you all about it in this week's edition of Best Bets. In honor of the Michigan International Auto Show at the DeVos Place on Feb. 5-8, Lindsay knocked on her cubicle wall to summon our resident car expert Joe Boomgaard, who also wears many hats, including editor and Beer Czar at Revue.

BEST BETS: Vaping, millennials, rock 'n' roll and more

Written by REVUE Staff | Thursday, 29 January 2015 13:45 |

Lindsay Patton-Carson does not vape, but she sometimes watches a co-worker vape here in the office, so she’s pretty much an expert. While she might not be dropping any personal vaping knowledge on you this week, she does have an event in Grand Rapids that vapers and traditional smokers might be interested in. All the deets are in this week’s edition of Best Bets.

Rock Best Bet: Swans

Written by Emma Kat Richardson | Monday, 26 January 2015 17:18 |

If you’re in a band and planning to wear the label “experimental” as part of your genre specifications, you’d better be prepared to bring the goods. And god help you if the goods aren’t as kooky, out-there and mind-blowing as possible.

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.
