Second annual Southside Sessions comes to Second Saturday

Saturday’s second annual Southside Sessions will bring together people, music and food for an afternoon of memory making.

This year’s event is expected to be much bigger than last year’s, said event coordinator Josh Robichaud. “There were some smaller bands and food donations. This one is going to be bigger and better. We want to make it a force to be reckoned with.”

Full of musical performances by bands like Prieta, Smirker, O Street Dub, Majesty and Esteban Villa, Southside Sessions will feature skateboarding by amateur riders and art demonstrations by local professionals.

Following the day’s activities, there will be a movie night featuring “Monsters vs. Aliens.”

Other artists include Alchemy FX, Erick Veil, Rocío Mo, Dezi Bush, Charise Marie, Mariana Alverez, Christian DeWild, Cristina Avramoni, Alexandra LeMay, Kenya Cavaso, Hannah De La Rosa and more.

People of all ages are encouraged to come.

“My favorite aspect would be the people coming together for a mostly free event,” Robichaud said. “Bringing an organization of a Second Saturday event to bring together a community that hasn’t seen a Second Saturday before is what I look forward to.”

Contributors include Red Bull; The Home Depot; Art by Dumas; Opa! Opa!, Scott’s Seafood Grill & Bar; Buckhorn Grill; The Melting Pot; Nopalitos Southwestern Cafe; The Cheesecake Factory; The Old Spaghetti Factory; Nine 16 Skate Shop; Kline Music; Tricks Gymnastics, Dance & Swim, Bucca Di Beppo; and

Southside Park is located at 2115 Sixth St. Southside Sessions runs from 3-8 p.m. Saturday.
