Video Archive: Paul Connolly cuts a 2007 Homegrown promo

Ten years ago the Homegrown Music Festival was in its ninth year — second year as a nonprofit. Don Ness was festival director at the time, but steering committee member Paul Connolly was called on to make an appearance on WDSE-TV’s Almanac North to talk with hosts Julie Zenner and Eric Olson. Connolly went on to serve as festival director for the 2008 and 2009 festivals.

Following the conversation, the band Cars & Trucks performs “Over the Moon.”

Cars & Trucks’ “Theatre Stardusk” now available digitally

We have capitulated to the demands of the marketplace! Our new album “Theatre Stardusk” is now available on Bandcamp in any digital format you could hope to have. And we put our other two albums on there, too. If you’ve been holding off buying our new album because it’s only on vinyl, the wait is over. Tell your friends and enemies that the hot new shit is at:

A track from the new Cars & Trucks album! For your ears!

Attention attractive, friendly and nice smelling frequenters of PDD:

After many months of laboring away with our good friend Jake Larson, we (Cars & Trucks) are happy to announce that a track from our upcoming album is on the internets for your listening pleasure. Please feel to check it out here.

We will be releasing more information on the album and the corresponding release show shortly so please keep your eyes, ears and hearts open.

Cars & Trucks: Album 3 Kickstarter Campaign Ending Soon

Just about a month ago, the Kickstarter campaign to fund the recording and release of the third Cars & Trucks album went live, and the entire thing was 100% funded within 36 hours. We here at C&T HQ were beyond thrilled. But while the project is indeed funded, we want you to know there are still a few days to preorder any of the remaining categories. The project ends Friday at midnight, but, until then, you can still put in for the 3rd C&T album (on limited-edition vinyl with free download!) and all kinds of other stuff that won’t be offered again. Check out the NSFW video starring Jody Kujawa, look at the levels, see if you feel like getting involved. Thanks!

Duluth elite rock snobby pizza joint

Come see Duluth elitists Cars & Trucks this Saturday with Minneapolis’ Story of the Sea and Self Evident.

Neither Story of the Sea nor Self Evident have played Luce before, but I’ve heard they eat at the ones in Minneapolis so that earns them a spot in our clique, right?
