You can still call it Experimental Tuesday if you want, but any night that features Trampled by Turtles is no longer experimental in the Homegrown book. Don’t worry, there will be the usual number of goofballs out. Tuesday is just no longer exclusively dedicated to them — it’s all about West Duluth and the friendly West End.
Clyde Iron Works will be the busiest venue schedule-wise, with two stages rocking upstairs and down. The first mezzanine show starts at 6 p.m. with Aurora & Her Good Intentions. Move into the main room from 7 to 10 p.m. for Jason Wussow & Friends, the Keep Aways and Trampled by Turtles. The lineup features mainstays of the Duluth music scene who helped to build it to the monstrosity it is today.
“We’re looking back at the people who’ve been really active in the Duluth music scene and kind of acknowledging their dedication and perseverance by putting them on the big stage,” says Festival Director Walter Raschick. “We love Jason Wussow for supporting both the established and up and coming musicians tirelessly at Beaner’s, as well as playing music himself … and then obviously the Keep Aways, who have been playing and organizing shows for over a decade.”
Two miles west of the 21+ show at Clyde, Beaner’s will offer music open to all ages. The latenight Tuesday shows cover three stages: Mr. D’s, Players and the upstairs mezzanine at Clyde.
