Homegrown Festival in Duluth this weekend

class=img_thumbleft>Imagine

SXSW

in Duluth, but with all eccentric local bands and zero industry presence, and you get a sense of the chaotic, indie-rock Mardi Gras fun of

Duluth

's

Homegrown Festival

(

MySpace

), now in its ninth year, the climactic last couple of nights occuring tonight and tomorrow (here's the

full schedule

). My

review

(more

here

) of last year's should give you some flavor of its anarchic yet downhome spirit, and why I consider the event as much a staple of May's first weekend in Minnesota as the lowrider show at

Cinco de Mayo festival

on St. Paul West Side (Friday and Saturday), and

the May Day parade and festival

in Minneapolis's Powerhorn Park (on Sunday).
