In a bid to drive away the winter blahs, West Michigan audiences embraced a dynamic mix of touring and local artists. And Local Spins captured it all in photo and video form.
For the winter blahs of late January, it was a pretty dynamic weekend of live music, from Grand Rapids to Kalamazoo.

West Michigan's music scene
Fans cheered everything from the Dutch electronic music of Noisia at Elevation inside The Intersection (on the trio’s farewell tour) to the psych-rock of West Michigan’s Heaters at The Pyramid Scheme (returning to GR after a long hiatus) to the pop-hued folk and world music of Erin Zindle & The Ragbirds at Bell’s Brewery in Kalamazoo to the jazz/folk of the Ashley Daneman Band at Kalamazoo’s Jazz Creative Institute.
Sunday night’s weekend-ending flourish was impressive, too, with indie-rock’s Fruition pumping up enthused fans at The Pyramid Scheme and Trampled By Turtles doing much the same with its bluegrass aplomb at The Intersection. Ogle the images, only at Local Spins.
And check out a separate recap with photos and video highlights of Perrin Brewing’s Ice Jam Winter Festival on Saturday, featuring The Crane Wives, Melophobix, The Hacky Turtles and Crosscut Kings.
