Of course, the whole point is to see something new. There are 43 other bands playing Homegrown that I don't have space to mention. (Click here for the full line-up.) "I shot for the stars and essentially got what I was looking for, which is fantastic," Shea enthuses. "I would say that there is a common thread in general attitude. These are bands that are pushing boundaries, either in their music, in their attitude, or the way they go about making their music and representing themselves as bands. Everybody is 'out there' in some way. None of these bands are passive or boring bands . . . maybe that's the thread."
