Rocks Off is about to wrap up our Free Press Summer Fest pregame coverage for the afternoon...sort of. Really, it's just a pause.
Of course we will be out at the festival all...weekend...long...and won't be shy about letting our readers know exactly what's going on. Even stuff besides the gorgeous weather.
For easy access, bookmark this blog entry, and then this link: Rocks Off's Free Press Summer Fest category. That takes you straight to all this past week's FPSF coverage -- the round tables, Craig H.'s FSPF guide for newbs, interviews with Big Freedia, UME, Tontons, Erykah Badu, Best Coast and lots more.
Starting Sunday morning, check the category again -- including on the Houston Press mobile app, available for iPhone and Android -- for Summer Fest spotlight reviews of Snoop Dogg, the Flaming Lips, Major Lazer and lots more. Same for Sunday's festival, starting Monday morning.
Also feel free to follow both Rocks Off on Twitter and the Houston Press main Twitter account, which will be filing tweeting like mad from the festival as well. So will our individual writers, including Craig Hlavaty, Brittanie Shey and even myself. We will have tons of coverage through the weekend on Facebook as well.
See you at the festival!
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.
