The weekend boasted fan-revving concerts from Grand Rapids to Kalamazoo. Check out all the images in Local Spins photo galleries.
Alt-rock’s Jimmy Eat World, touring behind its ninth album, “Integrity Blues,” closed out a week of invigorating live music with a Sunday night concert with Beach Slang at Grand Rapids’ 20 Monroe Live — which also boasted a near sellout the night before when Michigan-bred Christian rapper NF and Kyd the Band brought their tour to the downtown venue.
But that was just a small part of the live music picture, with Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band firing up Founders on Thursday with its lively country blues, the same night that Grand Rapids singer-songwriter Hannah Laine hosted an EP-release show at One Trick Pony and Kalamazoo’s Peach Lavender hosted its EP-release show at Bell’s Brewery, which followed up on Friday with a rock show featuring Wayland and Devin & The Dead Frets.
Among other things, Saturday’s busy lineup featured Red Legs, The Great Indoors and more at The Pyramid Scheme, and Parlor Voice and Major Murphy rocking Mulligan’s Pub.
Check out coverage of Saturday’s appearance by the Meat Puppets and Mike Watt (with the Jom & Terry Show) at Founders Brewing Co. and the Skitchin’ Fest punk event at Tip Top Deluxe Bar & Grill in this separate Local Spins review, with photos and videos.
