The South Side Weekly is an American alternative weekly based in Hyde Park covering arts, culture, and politics on the South Side of Chicago. The paper is distributed every Wednesday of the academic year and also published online.[2]


The paper promotes arts and culture on the South Side of Chicago through coverage and criticism, and follows South Side news stories that largely go uncovered by mainstream media. It includes feature-length narrative journalism, essays, and a weekly calendar of cultural events.
