Homegrown Music Festival 2018: Day 2

Homegrown Mondays are usually pretty chill. Dubbed “ancillary arts night,” it’s when the photo show,  the first run of the music video festival, and the poetry showcase all happen. On this particular Monday, though, things got interesting when an unannounced show from Trampled by Turtles threw festival-goers into a tizzy. More on that later.

 

While Trampled by Turtles is on hiatus, frontman Dave Simonett is releasing an album with this electric side project. Furnace, the band's second full-length, released January 27. We welcomed Simonett into the studio on January 31, 2017 to find out more about the release and his change in focus after 14 years with the hugely successful Turtles. Dead Man Winter performed an in-store the same night at Duluth's Electric Fetus and also has shows at Papa Charlie's at Lutsen on February 3 and at Pizza Luce in Duluth on February 18.

We are excited to present Dead Man Winter at Pizza Luce on Saturday February 18th. As Trampled by Turtles have gone on hiatus, frontman Dave Simmonet continues with his side project, Dead Man Winter, and their second release, Furnace.

SOLD OUT SHOW

In its third year, Trampled by Turtles’ Festival Palomino brought together a collection of beloved musicians this Saturday under the shadow of the Minneapolis Skyline. The Arcs with Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys, Illinois’ multi-instrumentalist Andrew Bird, British folk rocker Jake Bugg, and acclaimed groups Elephant Revival and Frightened Rabbit were among the top-billed artists. The festival featured a wide variety of Duluth influence as well, with Erik Berry Duo and Murder of Crows, both bands featuring members of the acclaimed Duluth legends, Low. Devil’s Flying Machine, featuring Charlie Parr, also contributed to this rich collection of bluegrass, folk, americana, and rock standouts.

Congratulations to all the KUMD listeners who won passes to Festival Palomino happening Saturday, September 17!  Note venue change to Hall's Island in Minneapolis.

Trampled by Turtles returns home to the Bayfront stage on July 9th! This year they're accompanied by The Cactus Blossoms, Hippo Campus, Feeding Leroy, and Madi Davis. You can take part in the celebration for free by tuning in between June 27th and July 1 for your chance to call and enter our drawing!
