MGAC Stage


The Upside is all American girl guitar rock with attitude. As original as the Donnas, these girls are for real and ready to show the world!  Joan Jett once said “I grew up in a world that told girls they couldn’t play rock ‘n’ roll.”  Nobody dare tell these girls that because when they make some music you’ll feel a smile in your bones so deep it will tell your brain to back off and have some fun.

Former members of the band The Way She, Samantha Jansen (guitar/vocals) and Lindsay DeCleene (drums/Vocals) decided in late 2013 to revamp their sound by adding a new member, Katie Potkonjak on keyboards and back ground vocals. With the new line up and sound, a name change was in order. The Upside is born.

Hailing from the Milwaukee, Sam, Lindsay and Katie grind out the Upside’s brand of original post-punk pop-rock like it was deeply embedded in their DNA. Fun is just one of the words to describe what you’ll be feeling if you’re in the audience. The group will be also be joined on stage their close friend and collaborator AV Super Sunshine.
