Occupation music critic
Location Chicago, United States
Introduction Who is SouthSide? Well, she's Chicago's only partyin' local scene queen who covers (mostly) everything that's rockin' a venue, fest, art show and more for over a decade. And was at one time photographed as one of Chicago's Very Own (WGN-TV's ad campaign). She enjoys hanging out with bands from around town as well as nationally and internationally has interviewed many famous rock icons like Don Brewer, Rudy Sarzo, V Is For Villains, Nate Z, Valerie Pettiford, Emilio Castillo and more. She has met and reviewed bands like The Parlotones (from South Africa), Lenhen (from Austria), Chateau Marmont (from France), 30 Seconds to Mars, Tower of Power, Lucid Ground, Grand Funk Railroad, The Polkaholics and many, many more. She hopes you enjoy reading about her adventures in this blog as much as she has experienced them.
Interests politics, music, horror movies and partying with bands until dawn
Favorite Movies horror, action / adventure, psychological thrillers
Favorite Music good question - depends on which band(s) I'm reviewing tonight.
Favorite Books depending on author but rarely have time to read since I'm busy chasing bands around town
