2011 Homegrown Schedule

The schedule for the 13th annual Homegrown Music Festival was released today. It’ll probably change a little before May 1 rolls around, but this will give you a good idea of how the week is laid out.

What do you mean my band isn't headlining at Luce Saturday night!?!? I'm bringing my Homegrown '08 tee to Seattle. Hoping to spark conversation.

Hell yeah. Best. Homegrown. Ever.

Maybe this time we'll get out to see T57. Last opportunity we missed was 5 years ago when Little Miss decided to make May 2 her birthday.

oooohh...good point Clarie...who's got the slot opposite Elton...sure to be a set killer @ the Arena for sure...he needn't worry though, as soon as their respective Homegrown sets are over, I'm sure a few will filter over to check out the madman across the water.

Claire

OK... I heard a rumor... a local musician I really really like has tix to Elton John too and won't be breaking my heart by playing Friday night opposite him.

Curious - 
I have two family members playing in separate bands.
Has anyone put a genealogy trace on the bands that are playing this year? Who is related to whom?

T-57 wear matching outfits at a Luce show maybe in 2006? One of the openers of two nights of Trampled by Turtles ... heh.

Is Bayfront not used because it's too early in the season ... the weather might be to cold or the ground too mushy? Or is it because Homegrown doesn't have the key to the city yet?

Paul Lundgren

about 9 years ago

Homegrown has never used Bayfront mostly because it's too early in the year. It can be pretty cold outside in early May. Last year there was sleet on Homegrown Friday and snow on the ground Saturday morning. 

Putting on an outdoor show is also a challenge with sound and restroom facilities and so on. Planning a show like that is more difficult when there are 20 other shows to manage at the same time, so it's never made sense for Homegrown.

But that doesn't mean some nut won't try it some day. Shit, any band could haul some amps and a generator down there and DIY that sonofabitch.

This past year there was the Homegrown Winter Fiasco. Maybe a summer day festival at Bayfront is feasible?

This is my stupid question of the day. Are advance tickets already on sale at the Electric Fetus? Looking to pick up some week-long passes that I intend to use this year.

Paul Lundgren

about 9 years ago

Erin, your question is a good one. Tickets were delayed and are not available at Electric Fetus yet. They should be there by Good Friday, April 22.

Also, this just in: Bear Garden canceled its Homegrown show at Beaner's.

adam

about 9 years ago

Picking them up later today. Should be at the 'Fetus tomorrow.

Erin

about 9 years ago

Thanks for letting me know, Paul and Adam! I stopped in on Monday and was told that they wouldn't be in until later this week. 

Bear Garden? That sure brings me back to high school...
