The band Heaven’s Gate Away Team formed in July, almost 20 years after its namesake UFO religious Millenarian group evacuated Earth. Until the next spacecraft arrives, four Duluth musicians will keep the spirit of Marshall Applewhite alive. According to guitarist Jacob Swanson, the band’s worshipful, spacey, repetitive sound is “an attempt to raise our spirits to the next level and bring the glory of Heaven’s Gate to all who participate.” Swanson, along with Ian Vincent on drums, Rick McLean on bass and Dean Berlinerblau on synthesizer, will likely be joined by other musicians and noisemakers for their gig at Homegrown. Audience participation is encouraged, and there are rumors of free Kool-Aid.
