What is a boy to do? I got a warrant on the books, an itchy driving foot, and the need for some serious chilaxing.....
Should I go see Sonic Youth in Austin, at Stubbs’s? Or catch the Black Lips down the street at Emo’s? It’s valium versus speed, people. Let God sort ‘em out!! Black Lips are hitting the Engine Room tomorrow night, so maybe I should just stop tempting the law dogs and stay home. Besides, Ricky Martin’s hitting the Toyota Center Sunday night, too. That’s gonna be brutal as hell.
Either way, both towns will be rockin’ this weekend. Have fun, and let’s do our best to stave off Monday morning. – Craig Hlavaty
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.
