Westside Wednesday! The night no one gets back to their own bed except West Duluthians, who have been eagerly awaiting their one chance to walk home.

If you’ve frantically skipped ahead to this day in the guide to see why Trampled by Turtles isn’t on the schedule, slow your roll. There was a tour scheduling conflict, and the band is appropriately sad. Also, the Homegrown committee has cooked up something really special. Charlie Parr and the Black-eyed Snakes are forming a super group to play the main stage at Clyde Iron Works. Before them will be Actual Wolf and Southwire, and up on the mezzanine the stage will feature A Band Called Truman, the People Say Fox and the Resonance.

Other Wednesday points of in- terest include Beaner’s, Players Sports Bar, Mr. D’s and two new Homegrown venues — the Kom- on-Inn and Gopher Lounge.

Playing last at the Kom-on-Inn is Wood Blind, a new acoustic ska duo comprised of local favorite Jason Wussow along with Veikko Lepisto. The latter used to be in Royal Crown Revue, a band that toured the world and had a hand in start- ing the retro-swing revival of the late 1990s.

As always, the schedule is posted below:
