The Upside: 2018 In Review

I look back at a year of Upsides, with songs from every show, excerpts from some of my favorite interviews (hint: I love them all!), and fun facts about the show. Travel back in time with me and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Santigold, Hem, and of course, Janelle Monáe - the artist featured on the most shows.
