Just a little fyi -- for those who've been watching & waiting anxiously for more details on this year's installment of the ever-entertaining Houston Press Music Awards Showcase, well, you're in luck, because today (I think?) the HP crew went live with the updated version of the HPMA site, including online voting & the full lineup for the showcase. Sweet! (Thanks to David over at Houston Calling for the heads-up, btw. When I'm out of the loop like I've been lately, he always helps me get somewhat back in it...)
I'm happy to see a lot of folks I like on the schedule, although it does feel like there're some glaring omissions (The Wild Moccasins, Something Fierce, & O Pioneers!!!, for three, and I'm bummed as hell not enough people know & love Scale The Summit to have voted for 'em for "Best Metal"). Still, there's plenty in the lineup to get excited about (in totally non-judgmental, alphabetical order):
One entertaining bit of errata on the list, btw, is "The Snack Charmers", playing at 6PM at Martell's (wherever the fuck that is) -- I'm guessing they're talking about The Snake Charmers, although "Snack Charmers" has quite a ring to it, too...
Anyway, as I've mentioned here before, the showcase itself is Sunday, July 26th -- just a few weeks off, now -- it starts at 4PM, and it ranges across a bunch of downtown-area venues, including old standbys like the Hard Rock Cafe, Dean's Credit Clothing, & Red Cat Jazz Cafe and a bunch of new-ish venues like the House of Blues, Isis Houston, & Martell's. Like the site says, 50 bands for a measly $10, plus a chance to feel like you live in a city that's actually geared for seeing live bands by roaming on foot/train/shuttle between venues. Make yr plans now, eh?
