This weekend, Homegrown Music and Arts Festival will gather some of the area's biggest and most interesting bands at Main Street Garden Park.
This year, the lineup is once again all Texans, after the festival's organizers decided they were losing the focus of the thing by expanding beyond the state's borders for bands last year. Megan Morris tells the whole story in this week's music feature.
The bands are overwhelmingly from Dallas proper. There are also a few Austin entrants, as well as one each from Houston and Fort Worth. Here's the full lineup and schedule with a song we think you should start with from each artist.
