Upcoming Shows/Events

Hey, blogspot readers, SouthSide wants to inform you on a couple of shows/events happening soon around town in which she recommends checking out...
On July 8 at Elbo Room, lyricist and urban activist T-Zank will be performing live on stage along with 3 other acts - Chi-Songwriter, D-Webb and Roy French on the heels of releasing his second album "Evolve".
“...Change is the only thing that is certain. Without a continual commitment to growth and evolution, we can easily get trapped in thought patterns that prevent us from really living the lives we are meant to live...” says T-Zank.
The project, Evolution, sheds light on this idea and is meant to inspire listeners to wake up and make a commitment to evolve into characters they need to be in order to achieve what they dream of inside their hearts. Evolution is an idea that many listeners will be able to deeply relate with considering that we have dreams that we hold on to deeply. What is the difference between the dreamers and those who really make things happen in this world? Evolution. Those who commit to evolving into the people they need to be in order to achieve their dreams are the ones who actually achieve and live them out.
