On Day 6 of the 2023 Duluth Homegrown Music Festival, Jacob and Owen Mahon hosted their last Mahon Morning of the week with special guest Boss Mama aka Colleen Myhre at Duluth Coffee Company.

Future church. That's an accurate, but wholly insufficient description of how the night began at Sacred Heart Music Center with Robot Rickshaw (aka Troy Rogers) and over 20 co-conspirators for what proved to be the night's most talked-about event. The performance was sometimes an earnest look back at a future that may come to be with "readings from the book of the collapse", sometimes humorous with a responsorial of "ok, cool", and a collection of money from the congregation; shortly thereafter, this wealth was redistributed as the bills were showered back into the audience. Though the music was experimental and more atmospheric, the in-house organ frequently kept the tone tied to that of a Christian gathering. Also of note; in the future, the communion host is sour dough and Homegrown founder Starfire is the Messiah.
