MP3 of the Day: Yes, There Are Summer Fest Tickets Left
Rocks Off just got off the phone with Free Press Houston editor/publisher Omar Afra, the Bill Graham of Saturday and Sunday's Summer Fest. After disguising himself as "that guy from that punk band you wrote those bad things about" - dude, you're going to have to be more specific than that - Afra asked us to get the word out that although no more Summer Fest tickets are available online or in stores, plenty will be available at Eleanor Tinsley Park tomorrow. The box office opens at 10 a.m.; the gates at noon. Should be an interesting weekend. Looks like we're totally getting a break on the weather, too. According to Fox 26's weather page, Saturday's high is only supposed to reach 98 with a 10 percent chance of rain, and Sunday is even chillier with 96 and 20 percent. We chose Fox, by the way, because Rocks Off is fairly certain we saw morning weather lady Kristi Powers raisin' the horns at Judas Priest a couple of weeks ago. Full Summer Fest schedule - we heard mammary-loving louts
