DAY SIX: RAWK NIGHT

Duluth’s rawkingest celebration is about to get real, with more than 50 acts spread across 14 venues — or 15 if you count the free DTA trolley. Mayor Larson calls the mobile music experience “hands down” the best part of the fest and recommends taking the time to ride out a whole set to get the full effect. Friday’s route will feature performances by Kaylee Matuszak and Kyle Ollah. Born Too Late takes the stage at Beaner’s at 7 p.m. The juvenile power trio was the talk of Homegrown 2018 and is known for busting out robust renditions of songs by Metallica and Mötley Crüe. Sacred Heart’s show will make full use of the old church’s awesome acoustics. Resonant harmonies will abound with a slate of soulful acts, including Sing! A Woman’s Chorus, Gaelynn Lea and the Nat Harvie Trio. If you’re craving variety, Pizza Lucé’s Friday lineup will hit the spot, with the hip-hop of Hollow Profit, the alt country of Breanne Marie & the Front Porch Sinners and the indie folk of Amy Abts and the Transcranials. At midnight, earplugs are recommended for MRS & the Sordid Affairs and their heavy-hitting hard rock. For those looking to get their groove on, the Rex has got your vibe. DJ Sox, Nudecolors, Attom and the Crunchy Bunch will provide a fresh mix of chill and funky electronic beats as well as danceable indie pop ditties.
