Side Hustle keeps bringing the music

KIRRA plays Sandy Hook on Thursday and Morehead hosts Recovery Celebration next week

Fans of heavy metal and hard rock will want to make their way to Sandy Hook tomorrow (Thursday, August 31) to catch KIRRA, live at the Side Hustle.

The Side Hustle is continuing their trend of bringing real, hardcore hip hop and heavy metal to the area. Last weekend that meant SevenStone and Soulfly’s Marco Rizzo.

This week, though, it’s the Oklahoma City based hard rock quartet.

In addition to booking nationally touring acts as they pass through the area – KIRRA played Newark, Ohio last weekend and are on their way to Glasgow and Louisville this weekend according to their social media accounts – the Side Hustle has been hosting a regular singer-songwriter showcase for local and regional artists.

That showcase, hosted by Jonathan Pennington of the band Moonlight Mile, highlights local and regional acts in a more laid back, intimate acoustic setting, and usually takes place on Thursday evenings.

This Thursday, though, the Side Hustle is planning to rock.

To get an idea of just what that’s going to be like you can visit the band online at kirramusic.com, or look for them on YouTube @Kirra_Music. You can also find them on TikTok, Facebook, Spotify, and Instagram.

Doors open at 6, with the show set to start at 7 – but this is rock and roll time. Don’t come planning on everything proceeding on a strict schedule. Come relaxed and ready to have a good time, no matter how the evening progresses, and you will.

Next up for the Side Hustle crew is the Recovery Celebration, in Morehead. That show, scheduled for September 7 “on Court Street… near SawStone Brewery” features music by Moonlight Mile, Jeremy Zeller, Ginger Wixx, and Roy Caudill. In addition to Side Hustle, sponsors of this free show include Mountain Comprehensive Care Center (MCCC), Faithful Recovery, and MCCC’s ReVIVED Recovery.

That show begins at 6 p.m.
