are talking about ideas. The energy and spirit that is at these events is incredible.” The first Ignite event was held in Seattle in 2006. Since then, Ignite events have taken place worldwide. This is the fourth Lansing Ignite, and organizers say more people have pitched themselves as speakers this year than ever before. “We had more response this time than any other,” Slayter said. “I think after the first couple of Ignites, people really started to see what the spirit of Ignite is all about — inspiring action in the community.” The event features a cash bar with beer and wine, including Michigan Brewing Co. beers and homemade root beer. Cravings Popcorn will provide a popcorn bar. The free tickets to attend are sold out, but organizers say a few more may be available online leading up to the event. “Stay tuned to Twitter and Facebook, there might be a few surprises coming,” Slayter said.

music with a purpose


Greenville, Texas-based Christian praise and worship band MercyMe headlines the Rock and Worshop Roadshow. The band holds a whopping eight Dove Awards, 12 Billboard Awards, two American Music Awards and plenty of Grammys to boot. “People wonder why we chose Christian music,” bass player Nathan Cochran said. “Frankly, it would be dishonest for us to sing or write about anything other than our relationship with Christ, simply because it’s so consuming for us, and good songwriters write about what consumes them.”


Thousand Foot Krutch first got together around Toronto in the late-’90s, when McNevan, Joel Bruyere (bass) and Steve Augustine (drums) decided to put a unique Christian spin on the rap-metal that was burgeoning at the time, a.k.a. Limp Bizkit and Korn. After playing show after show and self-releasing their debut, the guys inked with Seattle-based Christian rock label Tooth & Nail for 2003’s “Phenomenon.” Its latest album, 2009’s “Welcome to the Masquerade,” is the band’s most personal and powerful offering to date, with groove-oriented, rap-metal songs and from-the-heart, faithbased lyrics. The release entered the Billboard Christian Albums chart at No. 2. What’s the concept behind “Welcome to the Masquerade?” “The title stems from the mask being symbolic in our lives,” McNevan said. “Everyone is hiding something they’re ashamed of and imperfections. But we’re saying, ‘It’s okay.’ God sees us in his image and has a plan for our lives, and it doesn’t matter. It’s okay to admit we need help sometimes and healing.” The lead single, “Fire it Up,” is a high-octane, adrenaline rock song. The anthem packs such momentum that a score of NHL teams use it for pre-game montages, including the Detroit Red Wings. “Having sports teams use the song is amazing and we never expected that,” McNevan said, “and the Red Wings are special. “With the Wings, for the first game of the season [last year], they did a video montage of each player with a huge presentation, and they played the intro to the record and, “Fire It Up,” with fireworks, flames and the whole spectacle. It was unbelievable.”


This is the third year of the Rock and Worship Roadshow, and MercyMe has headlined every tour. Coincidence? Nope. MercyMe is the co-creator. The idea is a fun, wholesome event that doesn’t break the pocketbooks. “We’ve always wanted to do something where the whole family could come out, throw down a $10 bill for each family member and enjoy the night,” Cochran said. “A lot of families tell us it’s cheaper than taking their family to see a movie. It’s enriching and can be life-changing for a family.”

Speaking with McNevan, it’s obvious he’s pumped for the Rock and Worship Roadshow. “It’s the first time we’ve been a part of it, and I think it’s amazing what they do,” he said. “It’s a variety of music, all for $10. It’s a reasonable ticket at a large arena that packs 6,000 to 10,000 people a night. Whether you’re into rock or worship music, there’s something for everybody.” Whether playing live or at home in Canada writing new music, McNevan simply feels lucky. “As a band, we’re always so thankful. You can’t create the response to something you do,” he said. “We make music that’s true to us, and it always surprises us when the response is so good. We feel blessed and honored to still be making music and have the support we do.”


Now on Thursdays FEB. 10 – FEB. 16


Thousand Foot Krutch makes Christ the core of its music. But don’t expect the band to shove it down anyone’s throat. “We’re not preachy guys, and we’re not a preachy band,” said lead singer Trevor McNevan, who along with the rest of the group rolls into the Breslin Center on Saturday, Feb. 12, for the Rock and Worship Roadshow. “We love other bands for what they believe and expect them to return that respect and not judge us for our beliefs,” he said. “We don’t make music just for Christians, but we are Christians who make music. We don’t try to write Christian music, but our music represents who we are and what we believe.”


Thousand Foot Krutch lead singer Trevor McNevan has penned songs for a variety of artists: Tobymac, Hawk Nelson, Remedy Drive, The Letter Black, Demon Hunter and more. “Because I’m writing all the time, and I write for other bands, too, I’m always listening to music and being inspired by it,” he says. “Still, I do my best to separate myself from listening to too much music when I’m writing, because you can subconsciously recreate what you’re listening to.”


Rock and Worship Roadshow, with MercyMe, Jars of Clay, Thousand Foot Krutch, Matt Maher, The Afters, Lecrae, 6 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 12, Breslin Center, on the campus of Michigan State University, tickets $10 at the door.

‘The Rock and Worship Roadshow’ Jerome Vierling is stepping into his dream gig. The Lansing-based Christian rapper is set to open for “The Rock and Worship Roadshow” when it hits the Breslin Center on Saturday, performing for about 15,000 music fans. NOISE caught up with Vierling to talk about how he landed the gig, and why God inspires his hot hip-hop tracks. NOISE: How did you score this chance to open at “Rock and Worship?” Vierling: There was a contest put on by SMILE-FM (88.1). We felt that God was leading us to enter, so we uploaded a video and some concert footage to the Facebook contest, and with the faithful support of the voters, we made it to the finals. Then the judges picked us. NOISE: Is this the biggest crowd for whom you’ve ever played? Vierling: Well, that depends on how many people show up. We have performed for about 3,000 people. I hear there will be much more than that. I try not to focus on crowd size but rather pleasing God and reaching out in love to his people, whether that’s one person or a million. NOISE: How do you use your music to praise God?

Thu 02.10.11

Jerome Vierling Courtesy photo

Vierling: We believe that the Lord has commissioned us to reach today’s youth and generations to come. I don’t feel like a musician as much as I feel I am a missionary that uses music to share the good news of Christ. We have seen how powerful a tool music is, and since God is the author and creator of all things, it’s only right that He makes music to tell His story through His servants.

Vixens host first official bout at Lansing Center

The Lansing Derby Vixens will hold its first official home bout on Feb. 12 at the Lansing Center. The local women’s flat-track roller derby league will compete against the Floral City Roller Girls from Monroe. The event will begin at 6 p.m. Local band Shelby Twist & the Fetal Fairies featuring Starfarm singer Whitney Spotts and DJ RachaelP will perform throughout the evening. Flat-track roller derby is a rough and tumble sport where women race on speed skates, hip checking and body blocking players into the bleachers along the way. They wear plenty of protective gear — helmets, wrist guards, knee and elbow pads — and not much else. (Fishnet stockings are common.) The women range in age from 18 to mid 30s. There are undergraduates, doctoral students, lawyers and teachers in the league’s ranks. The Vixens have two wins so far this season. The squad of mostly rookies has won bouts against Port Huron’s Blue Water Derby Girls and the Traverse City Toxic Cherries. Elissa “Dogbyte” Patterson of Fowlerville said she’s never considered herself an athlete, but she was encouraged by the welcoming atmosphere of the Vixens. “A lot of women don’t know what their place is,” Patterson said. “I was one of those women struggling with being comfortable with my look and who I am as a person (but) I have never been more comfortable (than I am) walking around in spandex and tights and crazy outfits.” • The St. Valentine’s Day Massacre • 6 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 12 • Lansing Center, 333 E.

acting clingier than you would like, and you could be tempted to pull away or even break up.


(OCT. 24 NOV. 21): Dreamy Neptune

has you fantasizing about someone yummy. You might be planning ways to attract this person’s attention.


(NOV. 22 - DEC. 21): Your sweetheart might be asking you to do too many things, and you could feel a little resentful or annoyed. Jupiter is telling you to talk things out instead of pitching a fit.


(DEC. 22 - JAN. 19): You could be inspired to get in touch with former friends or lovers as Pluto reminds you about the good old days.


(JAN. 20 - FEB. 18): Use care with words this week. Mercury could create a minor misunderstanding between you and that flirty friend you’ve been trying to woo.


(FEB. 19 MARCH 20): Your honey

Down focus to MSU women Time Shift Come out Sunday


In that semi-detestable cloud of opinion known as the ‘blogosphere’, U.K. producer/singer James Blake has etched a name and significant reputation for himself as a sample-happy, minimal electronic-meets-R&B maestro who also happens to possess a vocal instrument of some regard. And this time, at least, the blogs have it dead right. With his self-titled debut L.P. forthcoming, a few E.P.s are the sum total of his musical output Everything about his gobsmacking talent is revealed in one track. With the title track from “CMYK”, the 21 year old (!) Blake demonstrates an almost preternatural ability to bend sound, piling samples and warped vocals on top of one another, sculpting a haunted yet dance-ready beat so minimal as to be massive. And the “look, I found her ... damn, red coat” vocal hook, bringing flashes of the denouement from “Don’t Look Now”, is chilling in its perfection.

among 32 players eligible to win the honor of most outstanding NCAA Division I women’s basketball player for 2010-11. Yes, you read that correctly. A SPARTAN. Keane has been electric this season, especially late in close games. While I might stifle the litany of livid things I have to say this week — if this trend with the guys continues (losing by 20+/game, losing and not seeming to care, losing to teams that some high school teams would crush, losing AT HOME??!), I cannot guarantee the muzzle will stay on. That said, for the time being it might be nice for all of us to remember what it really means to be a Spartan basketball fan. Right now, our men can’t remind us of that. They’ll be back eventually; but for now, it’s time to admit there’s a much better option. Visit the Breslin Center on Sunday to support a MSU team worthy of your hoots and hollers, your Mondaymorning hoarseness and your MeltingMoments money. It’s time.

C M Y K E .P.

Instead of writing a scathing diatribe about the sad state of Spartan men’s basketball, I’d like to take this week and dedicate it to a team worthy of more ink. I rarely devote an entire column to this team because it’s not the popular topic choice. It’s not the Super Bowl, it’s not the NCAA tourney (yet) and it’s certainly not the type of thing that whips East Lansing into the kind of frenzy MSU fans have grown accustomed. It’s women’s basketball — and if you’re thinking that dog won’t hunt, you’re wrong. Has there ever been a better time to switch your focus? I’m as serious as Tom Izzo’s pressers lately. If you’re craving high-quality basketball, heart and effort from people in a green and white jersey, it’s time to pay attention to the ladies. The MSU women’s team is a half-game out of first place behind Penn State, who it just happens to play tonight (Thursday) in Happy Valley. The game isn’t on television, but you can watch on your laptop: will be livestreaming it. Not your cup o’ tea? Head to Reno’s East — it’ll be throwing the stream on one of its big screens starting at 7 p.m. A win tonight would catapult MSU into a prime position going into the weekend, which can’t hurt. The women take on a scrappy U-M on Sunday afternoon in what is being referred to as a “Pack The House” event. The Breslin Center is looking to sell out its first women’s hoops game. Tip time is 2:30 p.m. and I’ll definitely be in attendance. Look for the blonde scarfing a Melting Moment ice cream sandwich … I prefer Section 127 for viewing. The best part about the MSU women this season, in sharp contrast to their male cohorts, is the overwhelming will to win. You won’t question that even once, which might be refreshing for some Spartan fans this season. Senior Kalisha Keane was recently added to the State Farm Wade Watch List — meaning she is

Beggar’s Banquet 218 Abbott Road, East Lansing, 351-4540 This East Lansing mainstay has style and class. Begin your night with a favorite — the baked brie ($13.99). It’s wrapped in puff pastry, baked to golden brown, served with apple slices and crackers. For your entree, the mac and cheese is a warm blend of munster, havarti and smoked gouda tossed with cavatappi noodles, then topped with breadcrumbs (full order $10.99, half $6.99). If that’s too much cheese in one meal, try the 14-ounce New York strip ($21.99), topped with garlic blue cheese butter, with a side of mashed potatoes and asparagus. Complement your meal with a pint of craft beer — $4 on Mondays.

RiverHouse Inn 310 W. Grand River Ave., Williamston, 655-4300 Whether it’s a fall day with leaves dotting the landscape or winter with snowcovered trees, the view from this Williamston home-turned-restaurant can’t be beat, adding another layer of romance. Share the steamed mussels (steamed in white wine sauce, $11). For vegetarians, you’ll love the options, including tofu skewers with vegetables ($14) or eggplant parmesan in a spicy marinara. Entrees are served with salad or soup. If you’re looking to wash down your dinner with a kick, mojitos are $2 off on Mondays. An intriguing choice: The X-Rated Connection (mango-blood orange-passion fruit liqueur, pineapple juice, and pomari pomegranate liqueur).


DeLuca’s Restaurant 2006 W. Willow St., Lansing, 487-6087 There’s nothing wrong with having pizza on Valentine’s Day — especially if it’s DeLuca’s pizza, one of best-known spots in town. Plus, it’s more cost-friendly. Try the deep dish seafood pizza ($10.50 for a 10-inch) with imitation crab meat, shrimp, cream sauce and mozzarella. Not in the pizza mood? There are plenty of other Italian dishes, like the gnocchi (at left, $8.59), or the spinach lasagna in alfredo sauce ($9.29).

Ukai Japanese Steakhouse 754 Delta Commerce Drive, Delta Township, 853-8888 2167 W. Grand River Ave., Okemos, 349-0820 Dining at either location is quite the experience. Take a seat around the hibachi grill and watch chefs toss, flip, and do other things with your food that aren’t recommended at home (like light a big fire, left). The “complete” dinner combinations include shrimp appetizer, miso soup, salad, steamed rice, a main plate of vegetable, chicken, fish or steak ($11-$28). A “special” dinner combination is all of the above, but with two entree choices and either a shot of plum wine or ice cream ($18-$28). A large variety of sushi also is available like the Ukai love boat, an assortment of sushi and sashimi for $49.95.


Dusty’s Cellar 1839 W. Grand River Ave., Okemos 349-8680 (reservation line) Known for its wine, Dusty’s has an extensive, award-winning list, so don’t be afraid to seek some help on which kind pairs the best with your dinner, like the grilled hangar steak (right). There also are plenty of cocktails (try the pomegranate mojito, $8), Scotch and bottled beer. Start (or end) your dinner with the Swiss fondue ($13) — Gruyere, Emmentaler, white wine, garlic and nutmeg with a touch of Michigan cherry brandy. Move on to the chicken and seafood jambalaya for two ($52) — shrimp, scallops, chicken breast, crawfish tail meat and Andouille sausage with creole-spiced rice and vegetables.

Benefit for MSU students in Mexico

The Loft in Lansing hosts a special fundraiser today for International Engagement in Mexico, a Michigan State University program. International Engagement in Mexico is a short-term, intense opportunity to make a difference in the lives of those at the fringes of Mexican society. During spring break, social work students become members of a team that interacts with local community members by providing needed maintenance and program assistance to Mexican human service agencies. As for entertainment, Chicago-based Strange Arrangement will bring funky, blues-y, rockabilly-tingled psychedelic tracks off its second album, “Polygraph,” to the Loft, with plenty of charisma and well-knit songcraft. Joel Cummins of mainstream rock band Umphrey’s McGee says this about the band’s promise: “Strange Arrangement’s musicianship and songwriting puts them in the ‘best of’ category of up-and-coming bands. Equally deft at intricate arrangements and memorable melodies, this young band has loads of promise (with a devout fanbase to back it up), and the live shows are always an exhilarating experience.” Local groups Funktion (Kalamazoo funk/soul/jam) and Snaps Ultra (East Lansing/Grayling reggae/funk/blues) also play. • Fundraiser for the Michigan State University program International Engagement in Mexico featuring Strange Arrangement, Funktion, Snaps Ultra • 8 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 10 • The Loft (above Harem Urban Lounge), 414 E.
