fred_tysonDestination, er, um… Wednesday?

Wednesday starts with an encore of the Homegrown Music Video Festival at Zinema 2. After that, events spread out over a broader area than usual.

Up the hill, the Music Resource Center will hold its Homegrown showcase at Sacred Heart from 6 to 10 p.m. MRC offers free music performance, recording and business lessons to kids in grades 6-12. With the help of Chaperone Records, the center just launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for new equipment. The showcase lineup this year features Jake Vainio, Hannah McDaniel, Curren Effinger and Shortwave.

“They’re nervous; I think mostly they’re excited,” says Darin Bergsven, MRC music instructor and program manager. “It is a higherprofile gig than a 10-minute slot at our monthly open mic.”

Effinger and McDaniel will also be showing music videos they made with the help of UMD professor David Syring and his students.

On the Grandma’s stage in Canal Park this year will be an unlawful amount of talent, including Sarah Krueger, Charlie Parr and Fred Tyson & His Tysonettes. And then the Acceleratii will play.

Elsewhere, Amazing Grace will feature the diverse combination of Bliss (of Kritical Kontact) and Adam Sippola; the Adjustments, Diet Folk and Mikey Talented play at Dubh Linn; and Lake Avenue Restaurant & Bar starts at 10:30 p.m. with Biochemical Characters and Timber & Steel.
