Celebrate the Third Year of the Homegrown Music & Arts Festival

Since it's Memorial Day Weekend, you should spend it doing things you don't get to do on the regular weekend. Today, the third annual Homegrown Music & Arts Festival kicks off with an impressive list of Texas bands that you won't want to miss. Other musical offerings include Gin Blossoms and Styx at Farmers Branch Historical Park, Nervo at Lizard Lounge and P.O.D. at the Grapevine Mills Mall.

Homegrown Music & Arts Festival
It's the third year of the Homegrown, so come out into the sun to celebrate your favorite toddler festival. This year, they've expanded the area the bands come from to “all of Texas,” so this'll be a good one. Come out to see Black Joe Lewis, Hayes Carll, Ben Kweller and more of your favorite Texas bands. Fellow pale people: Wear your sunscreen.

Nervo at Lizard Lounge
Do your good deed of the week and release an 18-year-old into their natural habitat at the Lizard Lounge. If you're feeling extra generous, bring a hand mirror to give to the kids with the sideways neon baseball caps.

Gin Blossoms and Styx at Farmers Branch Historical Center
What an odd pairing! Alt-rockers Gin Blossoms will be joined by the world's most popular group of kangaroos in human suits, Styx. Bonus: It's free!

P.O.D. at Grapevine Mills Mall
Say what you want about them, but the members of P.O.D. know exactly how to reach their target demographic. Yes, by playing a show at a suburban mall. After the show, hit the food court for the free samples.

Dallas International Festival
If you've ever been to Epcot (the boring park at Disney World), you're familiar with the concept of “international” celebrations. This one promises to be more authentic, with music and dance performances from over 25 different countries.
