HomeGrown festival in downtown Dallas features Neon Indian on May 14
The lineup looks similar to last year's super local festival. And we're not complaining.
DOWNTOWN DALLAS The second-annual HomeGrown Music and Art Festival will take place on Saturday, May 14 in downtown Dallas' Main Street Garden. Anyone with a penchant for local music won't want to miss this line up:
- Neon Indian
- School of Seven Bells
- This Will Destroy You
- Analog Rebellion
- Larry Gee
- Burning Hotels
- The O’s
- Grant Jones & The Pistol Grip Lassos
Some of the above bands played at 2010's HomeGrown Festival. In fact, the lineup feels very similar to last year's, with the notable exception that Jonathan Tyler & The Northern Lights is not playing this year. Neon Indian is certainly notable enough to take their place. Seryn will draw a crowd, too.
Tickets are $15 in advance or $20 day-of. A portion of proceeds will be donated to the Ace McNeely Foundation, a non-profit named for the late Ryan "Ace" McNeely, who played bass in Grant Jones & The Pistol Grip Lassos. The foundation gives music lessons to kids who can't afford them.
