HOMEGROWN 2: Boston's Underground Music Festival

I don't usually do a lot of show announcements on this site, but I just had to mention this years HOMEGROWN Undergound Music festival @ Temple in Jamaica Plain (670 Centre St.), October 15-17th. Mastermind Dan Shea (of local greats Needy Visions) and his buddies threw together an amazing fest last year, but this one definitely tops it. For Homegrown 2, Shea has gathered together not only the best of Boston's underground/psychedelic scene (Major Stars, Drug Rug, Jesse Gallagher, Skimask, DOOMSTAR!, The Fedavees, Fat History Month, Reports, & Beach Hair to name a few) but also some amazing national acts, including Ty Segall, Jeff The Brotherhood, & BBQ (of King Khan & BBQ). The fest is $15.50 a day, but there should be some 3-day passes soon for only $35.50. The show is coming up quick, so make sure you head over to HOMEGROWNFESTBOSTON.COM to grab some tickets. For a more complete list of each days festivities, check out the schedule below. See you there!
