As the cliché goes, ‘If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.’ That seems to be the mantra for Frederik Meijer Gardens’ 2013 Outdoor Summer Concert Series lineup, which has multiple acts coming back to the amphitheater.

The lineup, which was released today and is the venue’s biggest to-date with 30 acts, features returning artists – many that have sold out the venue.

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.

Taste This: Rustica; The Green Well; Old Burdick's

Written by Matt Simpson Siegel | Friday, 22 March 2013 10:43 |

Co-owner Bill Weier's quote "give me some crusty bread, simple food, good friends and a bottle of wine ... now that is a meal!" does not give Rustica a fair description. This small, cozy Kalamazoo Mall wine bar has a ton more to offer.

April's independent film round up

Written by Anya Zentmeyer | Friday, 22 March 2013 10:44 |

With the eternally overcast, emotional rollercoaster of winter officially behind us, this month refreshes Vitamin D-deficient filmgoers with actual sunshine. Michigan-made films are alive and well, and there's nothing Governor Snyder can do about it.
