“To play a live performance one hundred percent is to remind us that we are still alive,” says vocalist Sides. “We stand, breathe, laugh, drink, scream, fall, get up, move on. Realization of life is the path to enlightenment…”

On the stage Molly Sides finds zen in a clean, muscular expression, which in itself is a kind of manifesto of the virtues of rock and roll. She writhes sexually in all those sequins, howls, dives onto the stage and generally loses her mind, inviting the audience to do the same!
