Bad Ass Weekend

The first annual Badass Weekend is spread out over two days and three stages at Walters, Houston House of Creeps, and the adjoining Ballistic Skate House, and is sure to give you lonely and wild hearts something to do over Valentine's Day weekend. Not to mention, it will be a grimy respite from the glitzy, jockish NBA All-Star parties going on all over town (see above). Two dozen local metal, thrash and punk bands will only set you back $25 for a weekend pass, with individual day passes also available at each venue. The aftershows are only $5, so you don't even have an excuse for going home early.
Fri., Feb. 15, 6 p.m.; Sat., Feb. 16, 6 p.m., 2013
KEEP THE HOUSTON PRESS FREE... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
