TRACK OF THE WEEK: "Shift" by Vega

Written by REVUE Staff | Monday, 16 December 2013 15:23 |

If the White Stripes and Rage Against The Machine spent a drunken night together and created a love child (maybe Coheed and Cambria was hiding in the closet while it was happening), I'm pretty sure its name would be Vega.

Written by REVUE Staff | Monday, 02 December 2013 15:22 |

This week's Local Track of the Week comes from indie rock outfit The Cardboard Swords out of Grand Rapids. Wielding a Mike Mains & The Branches-esque sound, the band recently released a single from their brand new EP.

Electronic dance music is a hot commodity, with twenty-something audiences selling out venues coast to coast and hitting the dance floor at Monte’s, Tavern on the Square, Billy’s and Grand Woods Lounge, to name a few.

Written by REVUE Staff | Monday, 25 November 2013 14:18 |

Pop punk is far from dead, especially in the Grand Rapids area. With pop punk purists like Midwest Skies, West and Run and The Better Fight grinding it away, the genre ain't going away.

Kamilla bassist Mike Smith had been living cancer-free after being diagnosed with stage-two melanoma in April 2012.

But it returned.

For Carielle, Change Isn't Always a Bad Thing

It can take bands years or months to write a full record, but one week is all it took for Grand Rapids-based Carielle to write all the songs on Sonder.

Last week, we brought you some major tuneage from Jake Simmons. We're going to keep it rolling with music by another Jake. Jake Pauwels, who hits the stage by the name of Jake Down, released a five-song EP a couple months ago with his band Jake Down and the Midwest Mess.
