This Hansi Johnson photo¬†was posted to outgoing Duluth Mayor Don Ness’s distinctive Facebook page, which he has used to promote Duluth and its musicians for his two terms in office. Last night he kicked off Homegrown with a rousing rock anthem about potholes, the bane of Duluth politicians since the city’s creation.

That’s right, the Duluth Homegrown Music Festival opened last night and runs all week in the Zenith City of Lake Superior, home to so many people who are in bands that the 2020 census might create the first Member of Congress elected by multi-band bass players and shiftless drummers experiencing creative differences.

By all means, review the jaw-dropping schedule of quality Minnesota musicians at the festival’s website.

Homegrown opened last night with a proclamation by Duluth Mayor Don Ness, whom I’ve referred to as the Hipster King of the Zenith City for his overwhelming popularity, jubilant optimism and love of bands you probably haven’t heard of. But it wasn’t just a proclamation, folks.

That’s right. Donny Ness went electric.
