Frederik Meijer Gardens Announce Four Acts of Summer Concert Series

Written by Lindsay Patton | Wednesday, 06 March 2013 08:41 |

This morning, Frederik Meijer Gardens announced the first four acts of its summer concert series. On July 5, chart-topping country duo Montgomery Gentry brings its version of Southern rock to Grand Rapids. A couple days later, in what could be the most eccentric show of the season, David Byrne and St. Vincent perform on July 7.

Pop-punk heavyweight New Found Glory is announcing a 10 Year "Sticks and Stones" Anniversary Tour, celebrating the band's first major-label album that was certified gold in September 2002. "Sticks and Stones" features hits such as "My Friends Over You" and "Head on Collision."

Though the name may be deceiving, The Expendables is not based on the 2010 Sylvester Stallone film. In fact, the band has held onto that name since 1997, when the future of the band was up in the air.

The members of Flyleaf don't consider themselves a Christian band. Sure, they're a band whose members happen to be Christian, but as former front woman Lacey Sturm asked in a 2010 interview, "[...] if a plumber's a Christian, does that make him a 'Christian plumber?'"

However, when Sturm stepped down as the group's vocalist last October, just days before the release of the band's third album, they knew they were looking for someone whose belief system coincided with their own.

For Stepdad, It's All About Who You Know

It goes without saying that the music industry has changed in the last decade. A garage band no longer has to shop around a demo to the biggest labels to "make it."

Written by Dwayne Hoover | Wednesday, 23 January 2013 12:32 |

You can't have a discussion about thrash metal without bringing up Testament. The band helped define the genre in the San Francisco Bay Area during the early 1980s, a scene widely recognized as one of the birthplaces of this faster, more aggressive take on heavy metal.

The Pyramid Scheme Gets Jooky Once More

Written by Nick Manes | Friday, 21 December 2012 15:31 |

The infamous 'crew' is something of a time-honored tradition in the hip-hop world. Rappers take their friends with them upon getting big.
