Tonight: Celebrate the Houston Press Music Awards (Well, the Afterparty, Anyway)

As we mentioned a short while back, this year’s Houston Press Music Awards are upon us. While I’m sure there was some whining and griping, as always, especially about the new, more free-form, less rigid categories…

2016 Houston Press Music Award Nominees Now Up

Yes, it’s true — the list of nominees for this year’s Houston Press Music Awards has been released. Hang on…3, 2, 1, okay there we go — cue the complaints about the new format, gripes about deserving bands being overlooked, diatribes about how it’s all pointless anyway…

Almost Down to the Wire: Vote for the HPMAs Now, If You Haven’t Already

Yep, I’m waaaay late to this party, unfortunately, but not quite too late, which is always good.

If you have not yet cast your vote — you can only do it once, sorry — well, you’re in luck…

HPMA 2015 Nominations Live; Get Your Picks In Before Midnight

Hey, folks — yes, we’ve rolled around to that time again, when H-town gets together to pick the local cream of the crop, as it were, of our city’s burgeoning-but-underground (and yeah, we don’t give a damn if you recognize it) music scene. The nominations are now wide, wide open for this year’s edition of the Houston Press Music Awards

Tonight: The Houston Press Music Awards Steal the Show

Yes, yes, yes. Apologies for the quiet these past several days, folks — your humble Editor Guy Jeremy has been off on vacation in Southern California with the fam, seeing more LEGO sculptures than he ever imagined could exist in one place, and frequent writer/photo guy Jason has been computer-less of late due to some very bad technical difficulties. I (Jeremy, that is) am still recuperating somewhat from my sunburn/damaged legs, but nevertheless, tonight, Thursday, August 7th, promises to be pretty dang great…

The HPMAs Are Here! (Kind Of!) Vote Now! Controversy!

Yeah, yeah — I realized I’m way, way behind on this one; that’s just how the past month or so’s been, unfortunately. But hey, in case you, like me, are swamped and distracted and whatever else, consider this your wakeup call/reminder…

Tonight: We Landed On The Moon! + Tody Castillo + Bright Men + HPMA Preview + Landmine Marathon + More

Rock Houston: The Houston Press Music Awards Showcases

The Press Surveys The Scene, in Time for the HPMAs

Nice, nice, nice. The Houston Press‘s Chris Gray has a piece in this week’s dead-trees version of the paper called “Progress Report”, where he marks the coming of this weekend’s Houston Press Music Awards Showcase by taking an overview of the scene here in our currently-overheated city. For the most part, I think the article’s […]
