Hey, blogspot readers, SouthSide has more exciting shows and events happening soon that you should be aware of.
On Sunday, Oct 16, SouthSide will be rockin' and interviewing an official CMJ band from Minneapolis - Phantom Tails! They will be making their one-night only Chicago debut performing off their current album Sounds of The Hunchback Whale. She's been told this band wielded "...analog synthesizers, fuzz bass, and surf guitar while brandishing electronic drum beats sampled from vintage 808 machines, and sonar whale recordings..." - sounds interesting, blogspot readers. Voted as City Pages Best New Band 2011, they will be joining other bands in New York for CMJ Oct 18 thru 23 ...plus with other dates around the Big Apple. Visit http://www.myspace.com/PhantomTails or follow them on Twitter at http://www.Twitter.com/Phantom_Tails for more info.
On Oct 20th - SouthSide highly suggests heading to the Hideout to rock, jam and party with her buddies, The Buddies! This jamboree-like rock band comprised of members from Welcome To Ashley and Pale Blue Dot recently rocked out the crowd at Double Door during their record release show. This show had everything and they promise to bring the same fun and atmosphere to The Hideout as they share the stage with Star Anna & The Laughing Dogs.

Then on Oct 21 - The Real Jane Martin is having their BIGgest show ever, blogspot readers. Instead of performing at the acoustic lounge, they will be joined with special guests rockin' the basement lounge of Elbo Room. It's a HUGE deal for this duo and they invite everyone (21+) to come out to see them. They will feature Joe on bass, Corrin on vocals and Kirk on drums ...plus they promise you'll have a swell time jamming with them. The show begins at 9p with The Real Jane Martin hitting the stage at 10p ...so get there early! Visit http://www.realjane.com for more details.
Happening that same weekend, Change Your Age Workshop will be at Loyola University Campus. Frank Wildman GCFT, Ph.D. and author of Change Your Age (DaCapo Press) will host his first public workshop in the Chicago area at Loyola University Campus’s Simpson Living Learning Center which will introduce attendees to a series of simple, but powerful exercises that will help change the way participants move. These exercises, based on the work of Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais, actually will train the brain to send the correct signals to the body so it begins to move in healthier, stronger, more coordinated, and even more graceful ways. According to the press release, And, blogspot readers, no previous experience is necessary ...so this workshop is suitable for people at all levels of fitness.
The cost for the two-day workshop is $200(there's a discount for group registrations) / Saturday and Sunday, October 22-23, 2011, 10:00 AM - 4:30 PM.
