The best kept secret in music


""the side. is Coming""

“…could be best be compared to the schizophrenia that Ween concertgoers lay witness to, Charlotte-based band “the side.” can claim a show and a sound that is all their own. They can shift from onstage practical jokes to a serious rock show on a whim, and odds are they don’t even know what will go down at their upcoming show yet.”
~Andy Stokes from Metro Spirit Magazine in Augusta, GA
- The Metro Spirit


2002 "the better singles"
2003 "so shines a good deed in a weary world"
2005 "whachudoin'wit'at'nake?"
(2006 3rd album in progress)
