Homegrown Music and Art Fest

Houston’s annual spring music festival, had some new faces in addition to this year’s stacked line-up. Artists first featured on took to Eastdown Warehouse’s stage, showcasing both songs originally heard on the blog and new projects they have been preparing.

Homegrown was an accomplished two day music festival; both days were met with a bit of torrential downpour, but much like Woodstock ’69 or any other music fest, the people’s passion for the music held it all together. Many great bands, both local and touring, occupied a nice block of east downtown at both Last Concert Cafe and Eastdown Warehouse.

Starting off the line-up at United Music Alliance’s mobile stage on Sunday afternoon, P.Plus, Apollo, bassist Lou of Iguana de Harina, Cypher the Avatar and Mateo Escobar would set the stage for every act to follow. They did just that, all bringing an energy pumped show, packed with irie vibes for one full hour.

Cypher the Avatar and Mateo Escobar hit the stage, opening with some dope tracks including, “Stressfree”.
