How to enter the inaugural Homegrown Music Video Festival

homegrownchickenThis year’s Homegrown Music Festival will feature a night of locally produced music videos using songs by local bands.

If you are interesting in creating a video for the festival, there are some things you should know.

1) It’s a contest. You get 48 hours to produce a video for a randomly chosen song.

2) The drawing of songs will be at Beaner’s Central at 6 p.m.  on Friday, April 24.

3) Videos must be completed and turned in at Pizza Luce on Sunday, April 26.

4) There is a Facebook page with more information.

5) It would be nice if people e-mailed Annie Dugan (annie @ freerangefilm.com) beforehand so she can get an idea of how many people are interested. You can also e-mail her with any questions you might have.

Who decides what songs are used?

It's a random drawing of the 30 songs from the two Homegrown CD compilations. Track listing available at http://www.duluthhomegrown.com/merch.html.

This is one of examples of how Homegrown sucks. What about the other bands who have played Homegrown for a long time? Huh Paul. Why don't they get a fair shake at being in your little program? I bet Number One Common would like to have somebody make a video for them. How about Xhaust? 

I'm taking a screen shot of this due to the Censorship policies of PDD.

Hey Craig,

Why don't you organize your own video festival?? Huh?

Maybe you can make a video for Number One Common and Xhaust instead of coming on this site and bitching and moaning about everything.

And stop being such a dick head as well.

It's embarrassing

The music video idea came about because I wanted to freshen up the Homegrown Movie night. The last two CDs were chosen because it makes  the process a little easier for all who have one or two full time jobs while they plan this. All the songs have permission rights and are mastered in a way that will help the filmmakers. By randomly assigning songs we open this up to ALL filmmakers who may want to be connected to the music world, plus it makes it all more spontaneous and creative and (hopefully) fun. Thanks for your input you know who and happy music video making.

Paul Lundgren

Also, there was an organizational problem with making the video festival wide open to any song by any band that has ever played Homegrown.

In order to do a random drawing, the organizer would have to research the discography of something like 300 bands and make a slip for every song on every album, which would be thousands upon thousands of slips of paper.

One solution would be to just let the videographer pick the song. The problem with that is there could end up being several videos for the same popular song.

Also, obviously the Homegrown committee wants to promote the compilation CDs, because if they don't sell well enough to pay the costs associated with making them, it won't be possible to make future compilations and include more bands.

Do we get a video of the band playing the song on a DVD?  Or do we get a sound track to make a movie unrelated to the band?
Thanks,
Carla

Annie

about 11 years ago

Just the sound track to make a movie that will hopefully relate to the song in some way. There are some wonderful examples out there of music videos that don't have any shots of the band playing its song.

I would love to work on a new festival. Something more fair to everybody. I just find it sad that Homegrown was created to celebrate ALL THE BANDS, and not just the bands who were popular enough with the cliff dwellers. The video project celebrates only bands who were appoved by Starfire or Mark Lindquist. Homegrown is about everybody not just the selected few.

andy

Well then do it and shut up.

tony d

Actually, YKW, it is well known that Homegrown developed from a birthday party for Starfire, not to "celebrate ALL THE BANDS." The Fest has evolved over the years and it sure seems to me it is still doing that--as the organizers learn from their mistakes and successes, the fest changes a bit every year. Which serves to help keep it fresh. Heck, the film fest and compilation CDs you are bitching about are changes made after Starfire gave away the Homegrown concept, and who better to pick the mixes for those first two disks than two of the guys who helped start it all.

So if you aren't involved, don't go bitchin'--just enjoy the aspects of the weekend you do appreciate and avoid the rest. You'll find it will be a lot easier to dance without that tremendous chip on your shoulder. And if you want influence over how the fest is operated, roll up your sleeves and get on a committee.

Meanwhile, your paranoia over the local music scene and PDD is growing tiresome. You feel  you can directly confront Paul on this site, yet don't have the guts to use your own name. Mayhaps it's time to give the pipe a little rest.... 

Sorry for the rant, other PDDers, but I'm also tired of people tearing down positive things folks try to do in this community because they would have done them differently. A good debate is one thing, but this kinda crap does no one any good.

This video project is only postive for those bands who were chosen by the presidents of the pizza luce scene. This video project doesn't promote the other bands not involved with the cd and the new upcoming bands. One rule for Pizza Luce crowd, one rule for the rest of us.

I would love to see a video for Gangsta Spur, but unfortunately it is not one of the 30 tracks. Unfair!

Craig, I love your comments. It is all just an act, right? You can not possibly be as big of a baby as your comments make you out to be.

Ian

about 11 years ago

Wow, cry me a freaking river.

Maybe homegrown should allow a bands/artists to only play once, then are forced to retire, that way we only get teh fresh new shit and "you know who" will be happy.

As for the music video...maybe we could get every track, be it basement 1-track, live show, studio recording, whatever of every artist/band who has ever played homegrown.  Then we could draw from these.  I nominate "you know who" to go about collecting them.  That way it would be fair to the bands.

Whay Tony D said. Sheez. Carla, that'd be so cool, if you had someone performing in your wine bar!

Starfire

Here are the songs that will be picked from. Some bands from Duluth and some from Superior. Many of these bands have been active in our scene for years and some have brought international attention to our little piece of the Northland.

I really don't want to argue with you Craig because it isn't worth the time but we have a pretty good thing going on up here and "Scenes" require all kinds of people including the negative Nancy's. Hopefully you will come around someday. I know Homegrown can always use volunteers and perhaps a Superior liason.

I will help produce any video for any band that isn't on the holy list of the mixtape. I will on your behalf talk to public access and get the video into the rotation. You can email me at [email protected]  I will also include the video with the homegrown movie package I am submitting to public acess.

In some of my songs I have casually mentioned
The fact that I like to drink beer,
This little song is more to the point
Roll out the barrel and lend me your ears:

I like beer. it makes me a jolly good fellow.
I like beer. it helps me unwind and sometimes
it makes me feel mellow... 

(makes him feel mellow!)

Whiskeys too rough, champagne costs too much, vodka puts my mouth in gear.
This little refrain should help me explain as a matter of fact I like beer.

(he likes beer)

My wife often frowns when were out on the town
And I'm wearing a suit and a tie.
Shes sipping vermouth and she thinks I'm uncouth
When I yell as the waiter goes by:

I like beer. it makes me a jolly good fellow.
I like beer. it helps me unwind and sometimes
it makes me feel mellow... 

(makes him feel mellow!)

Last night I dreamed that I passed from the scene,
And I went to a place so sublime.
Aw, the water was clear and tasted like beer...
Then they turned it all into wine.

I like beer. it makes me a jolly good fellow
I like beer. it helps me unwind and sometimes it makes me feel mellow 

(makes him feel mellow)

Whiskeys too rough, champagne costs too much, and vodka puts my mouth in gear.
Aw, this little refrain should help me explain as a matter of fact I love beer!

(yes, he likes beer)

Can you please rename this event to Homegrown Video Festival for only Tier 1 bands? Because this video festival would probably only highlight the bands who were in the top tier for homegrown. I don't see any tier 2 or tier 3 bands getting mention or talked about. So basically you are going to have a film festival for only about 5-10% percent of the bands who work hard to make sure they sound good, and perform to their best ability. I mean how silly does it sound for a festival to highlight more bands that the usual Tier 1 bans from Duluth.


I mean come on who would want to hear and see a video for one my favorite songs Jenny Your a Metor from the Surfactants?? The shame!

Oh look at me I'm heiko, the lord of the door to the Holy Land of Pizza Luce where only the elite bands get to play. Bravo! Bravo!

Thanks Craig, for establishing a tier system for bands. We were totally lost without it.

And thanks for agreeing to make a video for every band in town.

I'm so happy this is finally resolved. You must be, too.

Evil Jeff

about 11 years ago

Hell, I am going to sign in as the king of the Carmody scenesters, Craig, you suck, as does Number One Common.  They have been playing the same five songs, poorly, since I knew them way back in the twentieth century.  The reason that Duluth bands get more music into the Homegrown is that there are more of them because most of the people with enough wherewithal to actually produce good music have also saved enough money to move out of Superior.  But don't worry, at the rate you are going you should be able to come up with a whole concert of the worlds smallest violins playing the worlds saddest song.  I will bring you some cheese, it is Wisconsin after all.

Craig R

about 11 years ago

I didn't establish the tier system. There are two type of bands that are booked for Homegrown. 

Tier 1 - Luce/Chairkicker/Carmody Group

Tier 2 - Everybody Else

Tier 3 - Superior Bands

My festival would make sure that if we do projects to promote bands that all the bands would be given a fair shake to be included.

Craig R

about 11 years ago

See! Evil Jeffery rips on the Superior bands. This is what Duluth Cliff Dwelling Scene really think of the other side of bridge. They hold their noses up high and say "poo poo" to Superior. Perfect Day Duluth is the fixture for this Superior backlash. Hark the truth!

Paul Lundgren

about 11 years ago

So, there are two types of three tiers, which include everyone, so no one gets a fair shake. Got it.

We have perfect resolution to this issue. Goodnight everyone.

Tony R

Craig, thanks for your truly entertaining posts. Can I suggest decaf. I actually think of Duluth-Superior as one metro area, but now I have to rethink that. My wife is from Superior. I think I might be sleeping with the enemy.

Evil Jeff

about 11 years ago

Its not my fault that I have seen the Superior scene and if it wasn't for the cheap beer and whore on Tower it would be totally intolerable.  They can't even play good metal, I thought that was the whole point of LocalM and all of that stuff.  It is just that Norm's can only do so much for your image as a garage band playing to twelve incoherent people.  When you try to translate that into playing to a coherent crowd it just gets ugly.

Evil Jeff

about 11 years ago

Personally I am thinking of doing a video for Drive Away, love that song, listening to it in my car right now.  Ironically I remember when Hot Rod was living in Superior, does that make him a member of a Superior band, from that other side of the bridge, oh dear, oh deary, deary, dear.  I have known other good Superior bands as well, they just didn't try to Nationalize themselves as such.

Craig R

about 11 years ago

Oh and Pizza Luce is any better? The band is playing and all you "cliff dwellers" are in the elite bar having fancy drinks. I'm sorry Jeff that you find the Superior scene not to your liking. I know that as one of members of the Pizza Luce Elist Group your contractually bound to rip on the superior scene.  Yet, when the totals come out for this year, it will clearly note that Superior or as you call "east compton" will have more quailty, more new acts, and more of everything than Superior. Sit on your side of the bridge. We don't mind. You not showing up at Superior shows makes room for more people who want to hear the new sound.

Evil Jeff

about 11 years ago

So, the "Superior" scene is bands playing the same crappy metal that they ripped off from Slayer ten years ago, only louder.  I don't see it.  Maybe I am jaded, the last time I was at a concert in Superior there might have been some distortion caused by all of the tobacco tar built up in the amplifiers.  Face it, Superior bars could get the music if they wanted it since they have the advantage of lower drink prices and a better collection of bars in a smaller area.  The problem is that there is no one worth a crap promoting the music scene over there and as a result the scene suffers accordingly.  It also seems that they are always trying to push the same played out crap on us as we heard the week before, and the week before that.  Get some variety, some talent, some venues that can bring out a crowd of more than the regular chronic alcoholics and then we will talk.  In the meantime I will just disregard you and your self-important lanyard every time I see you slumming at Quinlin's discovering that even a shit bar in Duluth can pull a bigger crowd than what could have been a decent bar in Soup town.  I have been in this town and in this town's scene longer than you have, I have lived in both Duluth and Superior and I have seen what a difference adding a little class and discretion to an establishment makes.  Instead of having garbage interspersed with something tolerable, having something tolerable interspersed with genius makes all of the difference when it comes to promoting a scene.  When you want to make the Superior scene into everything "hardcore" and can actually sign up a band that can produce sounds that can be considered pleasing to the ears, let me know.  I will be there.  In the meantime, go to the Keyport and buy some wine to go with all of that Wisconsin cheese.

Craig R

about 11 years ago

Oh please Jeff don't stop. Please tell me what bands are promotion worthy? Have you been to any superior shows lately? or are not allow to go because they might revoke your membership to the Guild of Luce? We don't need your blessing. We don't need the blessing from any of you. Superior is Superior! We might not a mixtape blessed by the lords of luce, but we sure like to have fun and not forced to get our credit check at the door like some venues in Duluth.

Local Moron

Dear Craig,

You are an idiot. I don't know if you realize this, but I am assuming you don't, based on your behavior in this thread and the numerous others you have shat upon. 

Here's the deal: there IS NO difference between Superior and Duluth when it comes to bands and music. There is only "good" and "bad." Unfortunately, you seem to enjoy music made by people who tend to fall under the latter heading. (The Surfactants are good, but surely they don't benefit from the backing of a total troglodyte with the spelling ability of a canned ham.)

Craig, instead of cooking up some totally imagined Superior-Duluth "rivalry" to explain your inability to do anything at all to help your favorite bands, perhaps you should consider this: you are currently nothing but a buffoon. Try being nice. People will be nice back. Simple equation. N+N=N. You are being a "D," which stands for "dick" or "douche," depending on personal preference. And we all know N+D does not ever equal N.

Maybe, instead of trying to be an asshole to everyone, you should go throw on some mook-rock in the background, sit down at your computer, and redirect your copious amounts of internet energy into developing that hideous travesty of yours that you call a website. Seriously, what the fuck IS that thing? Am I supposed to read it, or what?

In summation, Craig, you are a fucking turd, you don't know shit about dick, and you don't know when to quit. Hell, even Danny has learned when to stop Doing Duluth once in a while. Take a cue from him and know when to say when.

Or, you know, keep whining and being a clown. Whichever.

As the fine people at the Red Mug Bldg always say," it's just a bridge; get over it.

I just don't judge bands by where they're playing or where they're from. Same with people.

I guess from what I'm reading here is that there are basically two homegrowns festivals.

One for the bad music and one for the self proclaimed great music from duluth.

If you belong in the later group your band will be featured in the photo show, video show, and be given good spots for performing. The rest of you are just white noise to the duluth uber pizza luce elite cliff dwelling scene.

Seriously, I think Craig is possibly mentally deranged. The way he keeps repeating himself, saying the same shit, is a little disturbing. I wonder if it was the Limp Bizkit breakup that finally put him over the edge.

Also, anyone else notice how he stole that "cliff-dwellers" thing from that old-timey article that was posted a few days ago? He musta totally LOLed when he read that. And now we have to read it in every single post he makes.

ELITE! PIZZA LUCE! CLIFF-DWELLER!

I made the mistake of thinking Craig R's rants against PDD as guest host of DDD this week might be somewhat amusing as I do busy work today, maybe he'd even give some good reason for this irrational hatred he has against people simply b/c he lives in Supetown and they don't. I could barely stand listening to him rehashing all the same shit he's always posting here on PDD, and turned it off after about 3 minutes. Craig, why the hate? It's a beautiful world out there, the sun is shining, spring is on the way -- why don't you take that chip off your shoulder, take a deep breath, and enjoy life?

I actually thought Craig was kind of funny. He is truly nuts and he really hates PDD. This is a quote from his rant:

I love how he asked himself a question in the third person. Does he consider his pal Danny a cliff dwelling elitist? I think Danny uses PDD and so does Craig. Others have said it, but it should be repeated, this guy really does have a huge chip on his shoulders.

I'll second the Elitist Cliff-Dweller t-shirt idea.  Perfect for wearing to Homegrown this year.  Although I won't be setting foot in Luce.  Not because I have an irrational hatred of the place, but I just figure I won't be able to get in.  I tried last year for the Black Eyed Snakes and didn't even get in the vestibule.

Does it count if I talk about my wife's addiction to Pizza Luce's excellent French 75?

I got a better idea.  I was wondering if there is anyone who has any video clips of the bands that videos are being sought for?  If anyone has video they would want to share that would kick ass!  Personally I am looking for any video of Hot Rod singing...

Has nothing to do with making a video, I just think he is cute and want to paste his pic all over my walls.

Oh, wow, into the fire but here I go. . .and peace, by the way.

Not sure if people will scroll down this far but offer to Annie, Paul, Starfire, and the rest of the Homegrown Music Festival Committee that if they would like to submit the Homegrown Music videos for air/rotation on Duluth Public Access Community Television during the week of Homegrown we are happy to broadcast them : ) 

We as a staff all enjoy the local/regional music scene and would be happy broadcast these music videos if you want.

Just FYI

I was born and raised in Superior. I've been forced to look at your stinking cliff homes for far too long! On a bad day I'm even forced to smell the farts coming from your elitist paper factory! Like Craig, I'm forced to work in Duluth. It's not my fault I can't get a decent job in Superior. But I make my money and I bring it back to Superior. I used to spend my money at places like Lucé and Carmondy. Now I boycott all Duluth businesses! I've even boycotted homegrown for the past few years, as it's run buy those damn cliff dwellers!!! Keep your damn festivals outta my town! 


Now Craig, I understand your enjoyment of Lucé's delicious breakfast sandwiches. They are so dam irresistible as is the free internet. Homegrown is also a very irresistible Cliff Dweller run entity. In fact, there a lot of things that are irresistible about Duluth.The Surfactants are the only Duluth band I can stand as well but I've even boycotted them! But we must stand strong my brother. We must take their money and bring it back to our motherland, Superior. This is no joke. If you're serious at all about your hatred of all things Duluth, as I hope you are. Then join my boycott. Let's build a better Superior!!!! Vote with your pocketbook!!!!

Duluth Boycott List:
- Websites and message boards (ie. perfectduluthday.com)
- All Duluth retail stores and restaurants 
- Publications
- Homegrown
- Duluth bands
- Music Producers
- All institutions of higher learning that practice reciprocity.
- Sports Teams
- Spirit Mountain
- Tourist spots
- Radio Stations
- Duluth Photo Guild
- Bridges
- The North Shore
- Film Festivals
- Fond du luth Casino
- And any other Cliff Dweller run/supported entity!!!!!!

This is a call to my truly superior Superior brothers and sisters!!!!! Boycott!!!!!! Boycott!!!!!! Boycott!!!!!! Boycott!!!!!!

Spend your time and money in Superior!!!!! Join Craig and I as we lead the revolution! Visit localm.com for all of your superior music and information. Boycott Duluth bands! Don't book them in Superior!!! Keep them on their side!!! Duluth isn't all bad but it's time we make a stand against Duluth. The line has been drawn and we must pick a side.  Someone please start a moreperfectsuperiorday.com website so we can have a better message board. And remember, just stay out Duluth and Minnesota, period!

Hey! We should bomb the two bridges between Duluth and Superior! And cut all the phone lines while we are at it.

In the beginning creatures swam the seas, and then they started to trek slowly out of the water, into the swamps.  As they evolved further some of them made for the higher grounds and became cliff dwellers.  Those that chose not to evolve stayed in swamp lands and then complained to the cliff-dwellers that they should be respected because their rhythmic creations were so much better than the cliff dwellers rhythmic creations.  It turns out that the swamp dwellers had failed to evolve complex ears.

Yes! Bomb the bridges!!! 

Heiko, you are a liar! There is no way that Craig would go into Lucé, let along buy anything from you idiots!! It goes against everything that he stands for! And it would make him a horrible hypocrite and unscrupulous liar!!! Stop making up lies, you cliff dweller!! We don't want acceptance into your stupid club!! You will never see Craig or I at your stupid Lucé because you suck!!!! We've got much better things going on in Superior. Stop with all your lies!!!!

Evil Jeff, we were made in the image of god, not stupid sea creatures!!! We are much better at making music and listening to it in Superior!!! You just think you're better because you are so stupid!!! You need to read the Bible and not that stupid Cliff Dweller bible but the real bible!!!

Those breakfast sandwiches at Luce sound pretty tasty. I don't blame Craig for abandoning his principles and driving across the state line to scarf one down. BTW, I just checked out Luce's website, and I'm in one of the photos of people dining at Luce!!! Craig, eat your heart out! See you at the Looch!

The Rhode Warrior!!!

No Name Please - Craig would never eat at Lucé!!! Are you crazy? He hates Lucé and all that it stands for more than I do!!! Why would anyone who hates something so much turn around and support it???? The answer is they wouldn't!!!! You cliff dwellers are all the same!!! So stupid!!! Take a clue from Craig and get not so stupid. Learn to stand for something for once in you life like Craig does! This is what true Superior honor is!!! Viva la Superior!!!!!!
