Free Press New Year's Eve
We already know that Free Press Houston can throw a helluva bash from this year's two Block Party events and the groundbreaking Summerfest concert back in August. Let's see how they treat Houston on New Year's Eve. FPH has lined up seven bands and performers to ring in the new decade, including the folk-rocking Sideshow Tramps, the lap-steeled blues of Grandfather Child and Mangos' resident Wednesday-night honky-tonkers, Robert Ellis & the Boys. On the more frenzied, lo-fi end of the spectrum, this show doubles as Female Demand's EP release party for its brand-new 12-inch slab of vinyl. The whole soiree doesn't end until the booze runs out or the cops kick everyone out.
