It is a space for anyone and everyone to use. We lean toward the weird & the wonderful.

Who runs B•SIDE
Currently B-SIDE is being run by Rachel & Mike, who own and operate FARSIDE. Mike is an artist, and Rachel has a background in arts administration, organizing exhibitions and operating a music venue. B-SIDE is our passion project.
We do not charge rental fees, take commissions or take a door percentage from art or music shows. We are striving to do our best, but we had a baby recently and are a little sleep deprived, please be patient with us.
