Support the independent voice of Houston and help keep the future of Houston Press free.

Late last night we got our first peek at a new clip from local singer-songwriter Benjamin Wesley for his single "People Will Never Stop Being Crazy." The video comes almost a year after his Geschichte release, and is in fact the first music video he has made to promote the EP. Last summer he was doing some shooting with a few videographers in downtown parking garages for a clip but nothing seemed to come of it. The video centers around Wesley and a cast of beautiful grotesque characters in various rooms and spaces while his own animations and writing seem to come alive around them with Preachers, children, revolutionaries and faded beauties abound. The concept gives the proceedings an almost schizoid quality a la the 2001 film A Beautiful Mind.

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.
