Ian is a wise man. I'll second all of his choices and add these:

High Volt Rustler
Poor Howard
Total Freedom Rock
Bill Meier & Poetry Motel

Those are just from the bands playing Sunday to Tuesday. And yes, I know Southwire and Poetry Motel are opposite each other. I fully intend to be at both places at once.

The Norshor is one of the venues, right?


about 14 years ago

Yes, the NorShor is a venue.  All fifteen of your picks are playing there.  Simultaneously.


about 14 years ago

Here're my picks (do I get disqualified if I play in a band who will be playing Homegrown--not on my list because that would be self-serving--but who will be cameo performing with one of the bands who IS on my list?:

1) Coal Car Caboose--I needs me some of that rockin' ska horn stuff! I will dance my hind parts off.

2) Mags David's, Sing!: A Women's Chorus--Mags is wonderful and if you want to see local culture in action, go see a bunch of local females singing and rhythming together in interesting ways--I hope they do several of Mags' original compositions!

3) Father Hennepin--isn't this like the ur-band for Homegrown? (Full disclosure, I'm excited to be part of the Tangier Horns guest appearance with this alt. country confection of Starfire, Ted and the other folks of the group--and my buddy from out of town, without prompting from me, pegged this evening at RT Quinlans with the Fromundas and others as the best overall gig of the festival).

4) The Antmen--I know nothing about them, but I loved Adam and the Ants as a novelty act when I was really in high school, and this is a Monday night act, so I say give 'em a gamble.

5) Shana David--anybody who thinks she can single-handedly pull off the Runaways deserves a shot.

Top 5 lists are frakin' difficult. I love living in this interesting town!
