Steppin’ In It ends 13-year run of Monday nights at the Green Door


Wednesday, Jan. 22 — On Monday, Lansing-bred band Steppin’ In It said goodbye to its regular Monday night gig at the Green Door on Lansing’s East Side. It capped off a 13-year run that began shortly after group members finished college at Michigan State University.

In this week’s cover story, City Pulse looks back on all those years (which, on paper, is around 700 shows) and how the gig honed their skills individually and also as a group.

Also in this week’s issue:

  • At a hearing last week, Ingham Circuit Judge William Collette chided a group of protesters as publicity seekers as they prepare to go to trial for their role in protesting an oil pipeline in Stockbridge in July.
  • MSU researchers are still feeling the pain of sequestration and a trend in decreased federal research funding, they feel, will diminish the quality of their work.
  • A profile of local entrepreneur Chris Beasley, whose East Lansing business is stocked with replicate swords, shields, daggers and helmets from the hit HBO show, “Game of Thrones.”
