Live Events


Everyone gets at least fifteen minutes of fame. We can give you five. Side Street Studio Arts in Elgin is opening up our space for performers of all types to try out their material.

On the third Wednesday of the month performers will receive five minutes each to do their thing. Click the photo above for more info!

Dark Matters: Winter Tales is a two-day podcast festival with Side Street Studio Arts and Ghostly Podcast that celebrates the deep, dark, and demented. The festival will include live performances, workshops, and other themed activities.

Viewer discretion is advised as some topics may be dark or gruesome. 

Festival passes are $10 and that will give you access to each show. Full schedule and line-up coming soon!
