Show – Future Islands @ The Pyramid Scheme – 3.25


Baltimore’s Future Islands will be rocking out The Pyramid Scheme on Tuesday March 25th. If their recent performance on Letterman is any indication of what the Future Islands has in store – then it’s fair to say this will be one of the best shows in Grand Rapids all year. TICKETS.

You can stream their new album ‘Singles’(out 3/25 on 4AD) via NPR First Listen.


Here’s a second track from the forthcoming album:

New Show – Ray LaMontagne @ Frederik Meijer Gardens – 7.23


Ray LaMontagne will be coming to the Frederik Meijer Gardens Wednesday July 23rd. Give his new jam ‘Supernova’ a spin. It’s the title track for his forthcoming album – hitting stores on 5/6.

Tickets go on sale on 4/26 for Meijer Garden members & 5/10 to the general public. $60.

New Song – Hamilton Leithauser ‘Alexandra’


It’s finally here – a glimpse of Hamilton Leithauser’s(formerly of The Walkmen) new threads. This firecracker of a song comes in @ under three minutes. Anyone else ready for winter to be gone???

On May 6th you can listen to the whole shebang as Mr Leithauser’s solo debut Black Hours will be available for your listening pleasure. Preorder.

We be stoked.

Fireplace Fridays – Tim Coughlin Jr.


We figured with the relentless winter cold/snow here in Michigan that ‘Front Porch Fridays’ didn’t seem very cozy. So ‘Fireplace Fridays’ it is. We still plan on featuring the same type of music to compliment those moments of lying lazily by the fire or on your couch as you peer out @ the falling snow.

Today – we feature Tim Coughlin Jr of Madison WI. & his recently completed EP How?. It’s been a while since we’ve featured this type of music so it was refreshing to receive something like this – just yesterday in fact. Looking forward to spending some quality time with this one. Hopefully soon on our front porches. Woot.

Unfortunately – there seems to be limited info about this chap. Sorry!!!

Recommended Listening – Moon Taxi ‘Mountains Cities Beaches’


Nashville’s Moon Taxi grabbed our attention after a rousing performance on Conan – which you can watch below. Ever since then – we’ve had their third album Mountains Beaches Cities on repeat. You can catch them @ Shakespeare’s Lower Level in Kalamazoo MI on Sunday February 23rd. This should be a pretty high energy show – especially for 7 bucks(advance/$10 day of show).


The National @ Calvin College – 4.12.14


The National return to the city where the rapids were once grand. Calvin College welcomes a Halfway House favorite amongst favorites on April 12th 2014 to Grand Rapids MI. They’ll be playing the Van Nord Arena(5000 person capacity) @ Calvin College. Tickets are $40 for reserved seating and go on sale Friday January 24th @ 9AM.

Tickets -or- call the Calvin Box Office @ 616.526.6282.

Here is a stripped down performance from NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert series:

Stream: Broken Bells – ‘After The Disco’


Broken Bells returns with a new album After The Disco on February 4th. A third track – ‘The Changing Lights’ – has been released in the form of A Take Away Show with the always excellent La Blogtheque:

Show Annoucement – Pickwick @ The Pyramid Scheme


Seattle’s Pickwick invades the city where the rapids are grand on February 22nd. They’ll be joining Black Joe Lewis @ the Pyramid Scheme.


Be sure to grab their Can’t Talk Medicine LP here.

Having caught them in Austin @ SXSW last March – we can’t recommend this show enough. This dude has got some pipes:
