After the 2013 Free Press Summer Festival headliners leaked Wednesday night, this morning the festival sent out an email with a few dozen more names, including many local performers.
Also headed to Eleanor Tinsley Park June 1 and 2, among others, will be reunited country smooth-daddies the Mavericks, lady-swag MC Kitty Pryde, Canadian indie-pop group Half Moon Run, and the Quad City DJs of "C'mon and Ride It (the Train). Yeah.
Houston artists announced this morning -- with many FPSF first-timers, it appears -- include the Beans, Black Market Syndicate, Infinite Apaches, Orents Stirner, Otenki, Mikey & the Drags, A Sea Es, Uzoy, The Niceguys, Midnight Norma Lane, Nick Greer & the G's and Rivers, as well as veterans Young Mammals, American Fangs and DJ Sun.
More are no doubt on the way. FPSF is also promising a third main stage this year and a banquet of offerings from some of Houston's finest eateries, and is seeking artists to create large-scale installations. Tickets are on sale now. See fpsf.com for more information.
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.
