Come on Houston, start your Halloween week off right with us, the mighty he-men of Rocks Off and Beatles Rock Band. Yes, it's been just over a month and a half since we saw all of your faces at Coffee Groundz (2503 Bagby) playing our newish toy, and we miss you so very much. Seriously, no kidding, you all smell better than most of the folks we usually hang out with, and that's saying something. The fun starts at 7 p.m. and runs till 11 p.m. when the venue closes. It's also a costume-friendly event, so bring on as many slutty Dorothy Gales and zombie Billy Mays as you can. There will be limited edition Rocks Off T-shirts available, only at this event. We heard somewhere that they are how you say, sexy? Either way, we need you all there to validate our existence and to see us one last time before we commit unspeakable acts before the Pogues concert on Thursday night. Hopefully in the meantime you have been practicing the art of smoking a cigarette while drumming and drinking in between guitar parts like we have been. We have melted way to many plastic guitars to admit. See you guys in a few hours at Coffee Groundz, and don't forget to tip your bartenders and baristas!
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.
