The dude pretty much just got back from Campout Fest out in Palmer, Mass., but booking agent extraordinaire Dan Shea has already got us all worked up over his latest underground music showcase, next month's Homegrown II.
The sequel to last summer's inaugural 35-band festival at Church, this year's Homegrown stretches roughly 40 bands across three days at the Temple in Jamaica Plain (670 Centre St.), the site of Shea's Underground Summit II in April. It all goes down Oct. 15 through 17.
The shows will feature two stages of music each day and are, of course, all-ages. Admission is $15 per day, with a limited number of $35 three-day passes said to be available soon. Keep it locked to On The Download or Shea's Bodies of Water Arts And Crafts blog for updates, and in the meantime check out this crazy-ass lineup (that there is December Sound pictured above):
