FPSF Adds Dozens More Acts, Many Locals

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.


Free Press Summer Fest '13 Announces Postal Service, Stooges, Cat Power, TV On the Radio, Social D, Geto Boys, Calvin Harris, etc.

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 for more information.
