The Duluth Homegrown Music Festival is just around the corner, kicking off Sunday, April 30th, and Day 2 is dubbed Ancillary Arts Night. Monday's festivities mix art and music with a line-up that feeds the need to talk, talk, and talk some more about Homegrown, the memories of last year, new songs or bands and plans for the week ahead.
Monday events include an opening reception for a juried Homegrown Photo Show at the Red Herring Lounge, the Homegrown Poetry Showcase at Sacred Heart Music Center and of course the Homegrown Music Video Festival at Zinema 2. The random pairing of filmmakers with local band songs always makes for some creative and unusual creations. And the annual photo exhibit is curated from images submitted by both festival going photographers and photo snapping festival-goers offering the best wormhole to last years homegrown. Our guest this week is Photo show organizer and local photographer Kip Praslowicz.

Don't think Monday is just arts, the music line-up includes Maddy Sitter, Teague Alexy Band, Gold Star Junkies, Lesser Planets, Woodblind and more.
