Hopefully you all made it out to catch at least a little of last night’s festivities…   But if you weren’t able to make it out, don’t stress too much. The Chicken forgives you and has seen fit to provide you with SEVEN more days of rawk and/or roll.

Monday starts with the Homegrown Photo Show at the Red Herring Lounge, accompanied by an experimental showcase that’s kind of a throwback to an old Homegrown ritual.
“They used to put everybody on a Tuesday who didn’t fit in,” says Christian McShane, who started weekly Experimental Tuesdays at the NorShor Theatre back in 2002, leading Homegrown to take up the notion in 2007. “Then people started saying, ‘I’m not a freak! I don’t want to be on Tuesday!’” Now the segregation has reemerged on Monday, with a block of five acts weirding things up.
Other Monday night Homegrown events include the Music Video Showcase at Zinema 2, the Poetry Showcase at The Underground, and music into the evening at Sir Benedict’s, Rex Bar, Fitger’s Brewhouse, and Red Star Lounge.
