We’re changing the way we do things around here.
For one thing, I will be posting at least once a day, maybe more. I will also strive to make this as local as possible.
To do so, I would greatly appreciate your help. As always, we welcome your mp3s. Please send them to me at email@example.com, and I promise we will post them. (Please specify if you want them to be downloadable.) These can be hip-hop, any flavor of rock, any flavor of Latin, country, roots, world music – any style. Consider it an online listening party.
We would also appreciate your news tips – local bands born or breaking up, tour highlights (or low-lights), benefits, record release parties, breakthroughs on the national front, local industry shenanigans, anything and everything. Sure, you already post all that stuff on your MySpace, but why not send it here too, where others might stumble on it? (Again, please send tips to me at the email above, or call at 713-280-2473.)
This city is one big-ass waterfront – five or six million people scattered across hundreds of square miles. We could use all the help we could get in centralizing it here. – John Nova Lomax
Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
