Surviving The Gathering of the Juggalos

Written by Nick Manes | Tuesday, 16 August 2011 15:43 |

When it comes to music festivals, there are your average festivals and there is The Gathering of the Juggalos. Let's be honest about this. If you are a summer festival junkie, the lineup at Bonnaroo, Lollapallooza, Coachella, all starts to become pretty interchangeable, with a few notable exceptions.

Rock music isn't the first thing attendees of Lollapalooza hear as they approach the festival gates. Instead, some of the first sounds come in the form of bells, and chants coming out of a loudspeaker.

Dwarf Corpse Trollstomps To the Top at MXTP in Grand Rapids

Written by Robby Hartley | Friday, 05 August 2011 14:31 |

There will be a public trollstomping on Aug. 11 at MXTP. Dwarf Corpse, a folk-metal band from Grand Rapids, will execute the little-known but visually impressive maneuver when it plays the Grand Rapids music venue with Battlecross. This, of course, raises the question: What exactly is trollstomping?

As the All Stars Tour summons pits of hard-swinging HxC fans all around the nation with a roster of hardcore/metal bands, the Intersection will get a sample of the all-star action with support from some local rookies too.

After four decades in the rock-n-roll spotlight, Ted Nugent's mind is still an honest, bizarre and unapologetic place. The guitar slinger, known for hits like "Strangle Hold" and "Fred Bear," never fails to unleash his right wing/conservative opinions into the open.

Written by Robby Hartley | Friday, 01 July 2011 16:34 |

While watching fireworks this Fourth of July, chances are bystanders in Grand Rapids will look toward the Grand River throughout the day and wish for a little cooling off. With a little patience, that can come true at the 2011 Global Invitational Water Ski Championship.

Dodd's Not Giving Up

Written by Justin Stover and Ryan Cappelletti | Thursday, 30 June 2011 16:55 |

On 20 Division Avenue, just beside the intersection of Division and Fulton, sits a gray and white building. Outside the front door is a sign shaped like a vinyl record. It reads, "Dodd's Record Shop: New & Used Vinyl." But don't let this simple building and sign fool you. Dodd's Record Shop is a music lover's paradise.

Written by Kevin VanAntwerpen | Thursday, 30 June 2011 16:48 |
