Our friends and neighbors at Free Press Houston just posted the lineup for the next Westheimer Block Party, November 14 and 15 on lower Westheimer. Rumors it's soon to become the Washington Avenue Block Party in an attempt to coax some of those sweet, sweet yuppie ad dollars out of the Social, Pearl Bar, Block 7 Wine Co., Blue Label, Pandora, etc. are - for now - greatly exaggerated, so all you "Montrose Forever!" types can chill. Headlining are Brooklyn-based hip-hop rabble-rousers Dead Prez and Jersey garage-soul provacateurs Japanther, along with pretty much every local band you ever heard of. Several of Rocks Off's favorites are scheduled to play - give or take the inevitable addition/cancellation, of course - including: TSU Jazz Ensembles (yay!) The Gold Sounds Chase Hamblin Bright Men of Learning Something Fierce Female Demand Alkari Football, etc. Elaine Greer Room 101 I Am Mesmer Mechanical Boy Chocolate Crucifix Ghost Mountain Springfield Riots Roky Moon & BOLT Cavernous The Manichean Rusted Shut Cavernous The Watermarks Dead Roses Delicious Milk Satin Hooks Tyagaraja The Eastern Sea Shina Rae American Sharks Benjamin Wesley listenlisten Hell City Kings Grandfather Child Woozyhelmet Free Radicals Sweet Jesus... you get the idea. There are around 250 artists scheduled to perform - we didn't count them all, but it took three pages to print out in very, very, very small type. See the complete lineup at www.freepresshouston.com, and kudos to FPH for the coolest Block Party poster we've seen yet.
