As we may have mentioned
, Rocks Off was none too pleased when we read The New York Times
' most recent article
on Houston in this past Sunday's travel section and found exactly zero mentions of anything
music-related. This is Houston, so of course we expected all that restaurant/museum/architecture love, but to read Denny Lee's article, you'd also think that the folks at Poison Girl, Max's Wine Dive and Marfreless carry on in total silence without even a jukebox or bartender's iPod for company.
But we Texans are friendly types, for the most part, so Rocks Off sheathed our long knives of sarcasm and polled a few of our regular writers to see where they'd take an NYT
travel writer should they come back with the assignment to study Houston's music scene. (Hey, Dallas did it
, so anything can happen.) And we hope they do come back... eventually.
