The Grand Rapids Public Museum is giving you the opportunity to roam around with a Tyrannosaurus Rex — a.k.a. the greatest dinosaur of all time. The museum is bringing this pre-historic celebrity alive on Feb. 14-16 for its Dinosaur Walk.
Sound Tribe Sector 9, simply known as STS9, will be taking a break from their winter tour, announcing the postponement of their upcoming show dates through February.

Klay Fennema doesn’t mind letting people in on his dirty little secret. “I am not even ashamed to admit that we all have shopped in the ladies department for clothing before,” he said with a laugh.

Ryley Grayson doesn’t like to get caught up in discussion about labels or musical genres. Him and his band, West & Run, just want to play the music they like and let the cards fall where they may. Alive and kicking in one form or another for the last three years, West & Run has toiled away in the West Michigan music scene, slinging a high-energy, peppy brand of rock that many might call pop rock.
