Hey, blogspot readers, the month of September explodes with a rockin' bang for SouthSide! There are plenty of awesome shows/events to check out along with this busy reviewer during the month. *SS - donotes which shows she will be attending for future On The Town reviews.
Thursday Sept 2 - Check out good friends, Makeshift Prodigy rockin' the LaSalle Power Co or hang out at Double Door for the Window Licker Showcase featuring Starter Kit, Ready The Destroyer, Baracuit Couture and Without A Breath. SouthSide's tentatively scheduled to review this Double Door show.
Friday Sept 3 - Pink Floyd fans DO NOT miss seeing The Machine at Beverly Arts Center! SouthSide heard that this band of 22 years has captured the essence and spectacular of a real Pink show. Visit www.beverlyartcenter.org for more details.
Wednesday Sept 8 - Celebrate Reggie's (Rock Club and Music Joint with Record Breakers) 3rd Birthday! This bash will be rockin' with live local music such as Treaty of Paris, Ha Ha Tonka, Black Actress and other notable local acts on stage. Visit www.reggieslive.com for more details about this fun party.
Thursday Sept 9 - SouthSide's rockin' SubT to review Mother Culture's set along with good friends, The Love Shots. This reviewer highly suggests snagging a copy of Mother Culture's latest EP - Sold Your Voice. *SS
Friday Sept 10 - SouthSide's rockin' Schuba's to review Matt Ryd at his record release show. Also snag a copy of his Looking For Home CD. *SS
Monday Sept 13 - SouthSide suggests checking out folk singer/songwriter Jarrod Dickenson (from Nashville, TN) live at Elbo Room promoting his live album "Jarrod Dickenson Live at Roost House". Check out his YouTube at www.youtube.com/jdickenson or visit www.jarroddickenson.com / www.myspace.com/jarroddickenson.
Tuesday Sept 14 - It's a double bill for this reviewer. First SouthSide's at Elbo Room to review Ricky Stein (from Texas) and then, she'll be making her Debonair Social Club debut to see Violet Winter. She highly suggests checking out the HOT video for Violet's song "Abuse Me" on YouTube. *SS
Also happening on Sept 14, SouthSide highly suggests rockin' to the cool summer beach sounds of Seaside Stars. Think of this band as Germany's answer to The Beach Boys yet with more of a light pop/rock groove. She recommends listening to songs Guiding Star and Summer Holiday (it's the perfect summer-themed song for 2010). Unfornately due to other shows planned for that same night, SouthSide is unable to meet and review this band's live show. HOWEVER, you shouldn't miss their only Chicago appearance at Darkroom ...hopefully, they'll return again. Visit www.seasidestars.net or www.myspace.com/seasidestars for more details.
Wednesday Sept 15 - Hangout at Elbo Room with SouthSide for Philadelphia Phil's double acoustic set in the upstairs lounge. *SS

It's the Rock Chicago mini music fest which will feature six of the hottest rising bands in local music - The Branded, The Dirty Vibe, Thunderunderus, Red City and Low Of The Low. Now that's one HOT lineup for a Saturday night! *SS
Sunday Sept 19 - SouthSide rocks out the week and weekend by heading back to Elbo Room to see Grand Evolution (from MA) along with local favorite Warhellride and Lehnen (from Austria). *SS
