Concert preview: The Sidekicks

Joel Oliphint

Now that the Sidekicks' breakout album, Runners in the Nerved World (Epitaph), is two years old, singer/guitarist Steve Ciolek and his 2015 Bands to Watch mates are about to head into the studio to record a new album. But before they do, they're giving us a sneak peek by playing all 12 songs slated for the new record at Cafe Bourbon Street. Any Sidekicks rock show is a winner, but the prospect of all-new songs makes this gig extra enticing, not to mention the two solid openers, Vacation and Corbezzolo. (Don't miss it)
