You know, at least they're not at a Jonas Brothers show. Which is like saying, "Well, at least they're smoking hash and not mainlining speedballs into the veins between their toes." They get a free pass tonight.

I bet when he was going to radio school or whatever, dude was like "I'm gonna so be a celebrity DJ and get free concert tickets and and, like, make out with hot interns and stuff." The reality is that you end up waving little fans emblazoned with the robotic oldies radio station you engineer for outside all night.

I saw this guy and at first I thought he Wes Anderson or somebody. How is it that on-point hipster dudes somehow emit a frequency that even makes their photographed image look artsy and irreverent?

Yes, Neil donated all the proceeds from the merch sales to Hurricane Ike relief. I really wanted a hoodie (to hide my camera in), but they ran like 80 bucks. That's like, seven bar tabs.

I have never ever got real pic of a "scalper." Guy was so nonplussed about it: "Yeah sure, snap away, Annie Leibowitz."

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.
