I had thoughts about going and attending one day of this event in Duluth, until someone told me about last years event. I don't smoke nothin, homegrown or otherwise, but I do bathe, so I guess even for a chance to listen to some new music, probably isn't worth it. She said a clothespin would be a good accessory for the amount of smell the crowd brings with them.

This said, anyone ever been to these sort of events? Is it really *that* bad? I'll get back to thinking fishing really soon.

Which event? Bayfront Blues Fest? I used to go every year ,but NHRA drags are the same weekend so they have won me over.Something about a car doing 330 MPH in a 1/4 mile in about 3 seconds.

There is some awesome music going on and the chance of a romantic interlude is high.So keep the wind to your face & ears to the music.

Fish on

nope not bayfront.. if you read the name, 'homegrown' sorta tells you I guess what the people are about. I'm told the music is good even if the wafting odors could make ya nuts

Have never been to one but I would be willing to bet that the music would be pretty good if you are into jam bands. Any idea who is playing?

In doing more research about it, it went for 8 days and actually has a website Homegrown Festival.

The headliners tonight are a band called LOW and The Lake Superior Cacophonic Choir. If you don't know, the word Cacophonic means "having an unpleasant sound; 'as cacophonous as a henyard.'"

They didn't really do a good job with their schedule as it only lists last Friday and Saturday's music rather than everything from the week. The only band I've heard of from the lists I've seen is one called 'Sacred Heart'.

The best thing on their website is the kickball game results from the past years of the 'festival.' Who knows.. maybe next year I'll do the 'don't use deodarant' and head to one of the days to see if anything is good. Usually in Duluth the non mainstream bands that come in for say, 4th of july, (not blues fest.. that's totally different) play cover songs, but don't play them that well.

Well, I looked at the schedule and don't see any bands I recognize...but that isn't saying much as I am origoanlly from Colorado. I have seen these type of events before and are great only for the music of you aren't into the "extra activities" that are typical of these events. I picture it as a small Woodstock? Maybe I'm off the mark, but guessing I'm not. I'd go for the music because live events are good no matter what kind of music smile smiley

I would sort of picture it like that, except the music is inside mostly rather than out in the mud.

LOW is definately worth seeing. The beauty of their music is haunting. The band defined a new type of music now known as "slowcore". I was lucky enough to see them in a very small venue back in '94 when they were relatively unknown. I still see them whenever my schedule allows. Now days you are going to pay a fairly high price (for a local band) at mid to large venues to see them. While many local bands (semi sonic, the replacements)have made it to national and international recognition, I feel LOW has stood the test of time.

Ussualy events of this nature tend to attract a lot of 'bohemian' types. I really enjoyed my college experience having many friends who were of this group. These people have sort of left the baggage of conforming to standard forms of self expression, to really try to be themselves despite how others may react. Having conversations and being friends with someone of this nature can really be a gratifying and different experience. They tend to think outside the box and will tell you really what they really feel. There are alot of fake 'bohemians' out there, but the real ones, tend to be real gems if you take them for what they are.
