So we have the cover bands playing the corner of Washington and Walnut the Saturday and Sunday before the eclipse and we have the local bands on the stage the day of the eclipse. Well, quite a few of them will perform during the merchant's mart in the First National parking lot the weekend of the 20 and 21 so there will be a lot of local music playing. Still find it bemusing that the Homegrown Stage performances didn't get announced until after the cover bands were announced following the fall through of the national acts on the 20 and 21.
From the press release:
The City of Carbondale and Carbondale Main Street are excited to be adding another day of music to Shadow Fest.
