Extracurricular Activities

ON THE SIDE: This week Monkey School examines the irresistible pull of the musical side-project. We celebrate those intrepid artists who dare to break free of the formulas of the established acts to try something new and different. While the results don’t often warrant the abandonment of one’s day job, it gives fans a sense of their versatility.
