Keep on festing on
Related contentNow we get to the meat of it, literally. Homegrown Music Festival increases, exponentially, in intensity as the weekend nears. A bunch of bands, buncha people, weirdo only-in-Duluth moments. Maybe some sort of food truck fare eaten on a curb at 1 a.m. You do you.
Much of the action shifts to Superior Thursday night, where there is a shuttle to whisk you from Point A to Point C, before settling heavily in mostly downtown Duluth for Friday and Saturday. Then it all just sort of lands calmly, cooly with a few final acts at Canal Park Brewing on Sunday afternoon. Then, rest.
Homegrown Music Festival continues through Sunday afternoon at venues in Duluth and Superior. Details: duluthhomegrown.org.

The Masterworks program includes Emmanuel Chabrier, Camille Saint-Saens, Nikolay Rimsky-Korsakov, Manuel de Falla, Maurice Ravel. The soloist is classical pianist Orion Weiss, and the Washington Post cutely said of him "When you're named after one of the biggest constellations in the night sky, the pressure is on to display a little star power - and the young pianist Orion Weiss did exactly that."
Duluth Superior Symphony Orchestra's "Along the Mediterranean" concert is at 7 p.m. May 4 at Symphony Hall. Tickets start at $10, available at 218-623-3776 and Ticketmaster outlets including www.ticketmaster.com and the DECC box office

The theater is screening "Office Space" as part of its Month of Comedies. For those who have never seen the atrocities committed against a fax machine featured in the Mike Judge flick, here's the gist: A computer program and his friends are just zapped by cubicle work life and IKEA furniture home life. A funny thing happens when Peter, the ringleader, undergoes hypnosis.
"Office Space" plays at 7 p.m. May 6 at Zinema 2, 222 E. Superior St.
