Sideshows, or car meets, are illegal gatherings where car crews can show off their latest mods, do burnouts, doughnuts and drag race. Sideshows initially started in Oakland, CA decades ago, but with the growth of social media, sideshows have spawned across the country. Nashville has seen a surge of car meets, as auto-enthusiasts take risks and race their customized cars.
VICE travels to Nashville and connects with The Unknown Crew, one of Nashville’s pioneering Car Crews, and Kingpin – a car club ran by a mother Melinda and her teenage sons.
