Art for the people, by the people – that’s what The 49507 Project is all about. Lead by Black, Brown and queer artists and youth, this public art initiative seeks to shift power dynamics in under-resourced areas, specifically in Southeast Grand Rapid’s 49507 zip code.
With the return of LaughFest this month, and the long-running Sunday Night Funnies late last month, as well as the opening of the Grand Rapids Comedy Club in January, and the sudden closure of Dr. Grins Comedy Club late last year, Revue decided it was time to get an update on the comedy scene here in West Michigan.
The pandemic affected everyone in different ways. But for a high-octane, full-volume live act like Grand Rapids’ own Jesse Ray & the Carolina Catfish, the experience was particularly terrifying.
Over the past year, some incredible restaurants and breweries have opened that we hope are here to stay, forever. Sadly, we’ve also lost a few beloved West Michigan establishments due to pandemic struggles and staffing issues.
