Attention local musicians: Would you like to pass along some of your hard-earned knowledge to the younger generation? And, in doing so, perhaps keep a few lucky high-schoolers from selling their souls to the Man?
If so, even if you don't actually make a full-time living from your music, you're in luck. Cypress Creek High School is looking for local musicians to share their experiences at its upcoming career day this Thursday and Friday.
All that's necessary is to sign up for one (or as many as you like) 15-minute session; there are even afternoon sessions to accomodate your musicianly hours. Arrangements can be made for a video presentation if you'd like to show these impressionable youths what rocking out at Rudz feels like firsthand. Or bring your guitar and teach 'em a few handy chords.
There's even a hospitality room on site, though Rocks Off is willing to wager it may not be the sort of "hospitality" you're used to. If you're interested, contact Career Day Parent Volunteer Rose Spikula at firstname.lastname@example.org or 281-352-8099.
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.
