Homecoming is quickly approaching! With a great lineup like this, tickets are sure to sell fast. But if you aren't familiar with the acts taking the stage at Smale Riverfront Park, don't worry: Sam Banasek has you covered. Here's his Artist Profile!

Alvvays is the special kind of band that writes songs equally suited to toe tapping and gazing longingly out a window. The Nova Scotian indie pop five piece has been honing their specific brand of happy-sadness for the better part of the decade, and come to Homecoming prepared to bob heads and break hearts.
