This year’s Homegrown marks the final performance of the Alrights, a band that has played the festival nine straight years (not a record, but close). The combination of Toby Churchill’s thoughtful pop music backed by one of the area’s elite rhythm sections in Dan Cosgrove and Chavo Amborn will be sorely missed. When lists are made of the best local albums of the past 20 years, toward the top of that list should sit High School and Meeting of the St. Louis County League of Volunteer Astronauts: Excerpts from the Keynote Address. Diverse, original, danceable and lyrically brilliant, the Alrights have been one of Duluth’s finest for a decade.

11:30pm Sat 5/5 at Pizza Lucé
