The day after. Just when it seemed that everyone was safe, there’s one more day of Homegrown bliss. You can start by going to Pizza Lucé for some brunch, music and a bloody Mary if you’re in need of sustenance. For those who missed the encore, Chester Creek Café will be screening the Homegrown Music Video Festival one last time in its basement theater at 2 p.m.

Meanwhile the only officially family-friendly set of the entire Homegrown Music Festival will be well underway. The little ones are sure to appreciate Mary Bue’s set at noon; she agreed to write a set full of children’s songs just for this gig. At 2 p.m. Taste the Feeling closes out the Sacred Heart show with Homegrown’s youngest performer. The trio’s piano and guitar player, Anika Fernholz, is 7 years old.

The light at the end of the tunnel appears when Club Saratoga opens its famous doors to the Homegrown festival for the very first time in history. It’s being done up right with an avant garde set that will guarantee maximum weirdness. We’re told Todd Gremmels will debut part of the rock opera he’s working on. Then the jazz beats of Strange Meeting lead the way to the final act of Homegrown — the Silk Sheiks.

“All three bands are different, and they’ll all make the stage their own,” festival director Walter Raschick says of the ’Toga show. “That’s kind of what Homegrown is all about.”
