The 23rd annual Homegrown Music Festival is less than a month away. A 60-page Field Guide is off the presses and will be available at local bars, restaurants and other businesses over the course of the next few days.
Duluth band Syd & the Boys, featuring Sydney Hansen, have a new music video shot on the fishing dock on Rice Point that was once part of the Duluth-Superior Interstate Bridge. The video was edited by Grent Ellis Cañete, who plays guitar in the band. Other band members are drummer Ian Hopp and bassist Calvin Lund.
The song is a cover of the 1970 Velvet Underground classic “Sweet Jane,” styled after the 1988 Cowboy Junkies version.
This clip of Trampled by Turtles is from the Trampled by Thursdays concert series shot at First Avenue and streamed on Thursdays during the month of February. The shows were directed and edited by Charlie Berg. The song “Annihilate” is from the band’s 2018 album Life is Good on the Open Road.
In this edition of the Perfect Duluth Day Video Lab we combine trail camera footage from the Voyageurs Wolf Project, which was previously posted on PDD, with the title track to Duluth band Woodblind‘s 2020 album Bluebird Day.
The original video features a vast array of critters. This trail cam happened to be a spot considered a “black bear highway,” and the happy bears seemed to need some music to dance to.
The Brothers Burn Mountain have a new single, “Honey in the Shadows.” The video was shot by Ryan Dermody. The song was mixed and recorded about an hour north of Duluth at Diarmada Studio, and mastered by Tom Garneau.
We miss live music! We all miss live music … right?
This will be the 11th year of 2104’s Soup Social, dubbed #SoupB4Supe.
