Proptronics chats it up often with the owner of the ex-Reptile House building, who also owns a couple of bars in GR. Maybe we can get him to discover the fate of the Reptile House sign.

The Smashing Pumpkins at the Reptile House! I would have died. I thought I was lucky enough to catch Zwan at the Intersection back in December. Unfortunately, the Reptile House was before my time but I've always heard about what a great dive it was. No one ever mentioned what great bands played ther...

Yeah, I've heard that about them many times - that they pay crap and treat the bands the same. Still, if I weren't moving from GR, come fall, I think I'd be kind of sad to think the Intersection will no longer be in Eastown. Currently I live less than a mile away, so it's nothing to drive or walk by...

For all of those familiar with Grand Rapids' music venue, The Intersection (providing music entertainment since 1972), I am here to announce it's official death. This fall The Intersection will be joining Grand Rapids'ultra lame downtown nightlife, stationed right down the street from Van Andel Aren...

I have a sneaking suspicion that when Prop said he had recently gotten back into Motley Crue and "can't get enough" it was all a metaphor. He's actually been reintroduced through his rigorous playing of Gran Turismo 3 Aspec which features "Kickstart My Heart" by Crue.

Remember the movie "Sixteen Candles" with Molly Ringwald? Well, at the big blow out party at rich guy (and love of Samantha's life) Jake Ryan's house, everyone is drinking Old Style. Didn't that movie take place in the suburbs of Chicago, though? On another note, I've had an Old Style in Kentucky - ...

I have to admit, yes, I am a Beta Band fan. And yes, I absolutely hate their self-titled and I would never pop in Hot Shots II on a late night drive, but I love Three EP's. Many of you will probably recall their song, Dry The Rain, from the movie High Fidelity? On it. Not to mention the swanky elect...
