homegrown music and arts festival

A view from the main stage. Food, fun, music and great company. 
I want to let you in on a little secret I discovered last weekend: the Homegrown Music and Arts Festival in Dallas. It was such a special experience and allowed Monsieur Moulin and me serious access to ah-maz-ing bands (15 of them, to be exact) that I never would have been so close to otherwise.

Ben Kweller is ridiculously talented. And so nice!
Oh, and I met Ben Kweller. Like met him - as in had a conversation and let him know how much his 2006 album meant to my husband and me. Ok, so Monsieur Moulin did most of the talking (I may or may not have been too starstruck), but it was seriously surreal. And to add to the wonder of the bands, the festival featured local artists, vendors and food (shout out, Rusty Taco).

Thoroughly enjoyed Strut's traveling boutique. Great prices, too.
Loved Houston's own Robert Ellis and can't get over his version of George Jones' The Grand Tour.
Livin' it up in the heart of Dallas with my hubby. 
At the end of the day, we met some really wonderful people, had a Shiner or two, sang and danced the night away and had a really unique experience in the Big D. Needless to say, we'll be back in 2013.
