This is Avril Lavigne's newMaxim
cover, now on newsstands. She and her band hit the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion April 25 with emo-poppers Boys Like Girls opening.
I will be there too. I will be the one in the crowd with Avril’s face painted on my bloated and hairy torso, crying during "Sk8er Boi." Look for me in the Pavilion's security office after the show, signing autographs for The Woodlands Police Department. Gotta reach out to the little people, ya know? – Craig Hlavaty

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.
