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. 

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.

BEST BETS: Grand Rapids Bridal show; A Beer Bro's take on Kalamazoo Beer Week

Written by REVUE Staff | Thursday, 08 January 2015 13:00 |

Blushing brides have a chance to check out the Grand Rapids Bridal Show on Jan. 9 and 10. Our Lindsay Patton-Carson will even tell you how to score a free, high-sugar dinner while you are there. REVUE's Beer Bro Nick Manes also makes an appearance to discuss the upcoming Kalamazoo Beer Week.

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.
