Rather than hopping, many music lovers opted stay put and take in several bands playing at Clyde Iron Works. 

It was the first Homegrown for the Langertsons, a group made up of four teenagers from Mahtowa. 

"We're going to be doing all originals, which I wrote," Josie Langhorst said. 

They played the Clyde mezzanine to open Westside Wednesday. 

"I just like the experience of sharing our music with everyone that comes," Eli Gilbertson, the drummer, said. 

"Everyone's so into it and energetic," Amri Gilbertson said, "and they all love music, no matter what it is."

Superior Siren was the first group to take the main stage at Clyde. As crowds entered the event space, some were dressed in Homegrown spirit. 

"There's a 'fashion week' going on with Duluth Homegrown this year. And the theme tonight is since it's West Duluth night, it's the Wild West Duluth," Anne-Marie Geniusz said.

Geniusz and Stephen Bockhold said Kip Praslowicz was the mastermind behind the theme. Praslowicz had no answer for the best part of Homegrown week. 

"That's like picking your best child, you know? You can't really answer that," he said. "There's so many good moments."

"This is my favorite week of the year. I take off all week," Buckhold said.

"It just helps you find what you want to go see during the rest of the year," Geniusz said.
