Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

The all-Texas lineup for the third annual Homegrown Fest is quickly expanding, with the addition today of Austin's Black Joe Lewis & the Honeybears and The Bright Light Social Hour, plus the Ticket's own George Dunham.

Add those names to a roster including Hayes Carll, Robert Ellis, Octopus Project, Centro-matic, Ume, Girl in a Coma, Mystery Skulls and Low Dark Hills, and your Memorial Day weekend just got served a subpoena (to appear at Main Street Garden Park, where the fest is being held).

Think your band has what it takes to be in the lineup? Upload your demo by April 6, and you might have a chance to compete in Rock the Park, a battle of the bands. Bands still battle, right?

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
