Two Milestones: Free Press & Houston Calling, Both 10 Years On

Today’s a big day, at least in the realm of H-town music media, because it’s the 10-year anniversary for two of my favorite publications/sites/etc., namely {Free Press Houston} and {Houston Calling}

Lost in the Sun: Surviving Summerfest 2012, Day One (At Long Last…)

I went in without a plan. It was stupid, in retrospect, but that’s how it happened. After meticulously plotting out who I was going to see and when for the past three installments of Free Press Summerfest, this year…

2012 Houston Web Awards, This Thursday

Okay, so I meant to post about the second-ever Houston Press Houston Web Awards a long, long while back, but as things tend to go, y’know…well, it fell by the wayside. So much so that I stupidly missed both the nominations deadline…

FPSF 2012 Rundown, Pt. 1: Caddywhompus + Girl In A Coma + Quiet Company + Diplo + Young the Giant + Morris Day + More
