Ever been thrown from a mechanical bull? Rocks Off has, and it ain't fun. Nevertheless, if you think you have the stones (literally) to follow in the bootsteps of Urban Cowboy's Buford Uan "Bud" Davis, or just think watching the ladies dance on El Toro a la Sissy is sexy as hell (this we understand), you might be interested in this here "Rockin' Rodeo" shindig House of Blues is throwing in its Bronze Peacock Room Friday night. RSVP to the email on the poster - soon - to become an "invited guest," and we'll see you on the mattresses.
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.
