One of our favorite local indie rock bands, the Sidekicks have just released a new single, "Feed II," a song that comes across as “a commentary on feeling like we need to present everything we do on social media,” as it’s put in a press release.

“'Feed II' is about the constant online projection of self and the ensuing feedback loop this creates between those needing to see and be seen in this manner,” says singer Steve Ciolek.

The Sidekicks will join Oso Oso and Future Teens on tour this week. The jaunt kicks off tomorrow in Boston and comes to Cleveland on Sept. 20 for a date at the Foundry.

We’re keeping you informed…
...and it’s what we love to do. From local politics and culture to national news that hits close to home, Scene Magazine has been keeping Cleveland informed for years.

It’s never been more important to support local news sources, especially as we all deal with the ramifications of the coronavirus pandemic. Almost everything Scene is about -- our stories, our events, our advertisers -- comes down to getting together. With events on hold, and no print distribution for the foreseeable future, every little bit helps.

A free press means accountability and a well-informed public, and we want to keep our unique and independent reporting available for many, many years to come.

If quality journalism is important to you, please consider a donation to Scene. Every reader contribution is valuable and so appreciated, and goes directly to support our coverage of critical issues and neighborhood culture. Thank you.
