TRACK OF THE WEEK: "Sabertooth" by Red Legs

Written by REVUE Staff | Tuesday, 07 January 2014 10:47 |

When you take a listen to the high-energy, straight-up rock 'n' roll stylings of Grand Rapids-based band Red Legs, it's hard to imagine that this grouped morphed out of just a couple of guys with acoustic guitars.

The Better Fight says goodbye tonight at The Stache

Written by REVUE Staff | Friday, 03 January 2014 11:48 |

The pop rock/punk scene in West Michigan — as thin as it might be at the moment — will bid farewell to one of its major players this evening at The Stache, located in The Intersection.

You don't need to be a flatpicking banjo whiz to see that the folk and bluegrass revival that's swept the nation in recent years has gained steam.

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.

TRACK OF THE WEEK: "(s)he said" by The Cardboard Swords

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.

TRACK OF THE WEEK: "Footsteps" by Maybe Next Time

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. Sorry hipsters! When you talk pop rock, you would be remiss (yea, I said remiss) if you didn't mention Maybe Next Time, a six-piece group from right here in furniture city.
