These fine-looking gentlemen are Le Freak, the Metroplex's premier disco-era cover (or, sorry, "tribute") band, sort of like Houston's Disco Expressions with better wigs and fewer personnel. They and their North Texas buds the M80's - aka Molly and the Ringwalds with Bowie wigs and no women - are taking time off from rocking D/FW-area hot spots like Cape Buffalo, the Glass Cactus and 8.0 Bar to play House of Blues tonight at 7 p.m.
Conveniently, the Press has a stack of free tickets thicker than Neil Bogart's money clip - that's the dude who founded primo disco label Casablanca Records, btw - at the front desk, so come and get 'em. Office closes at 6 p.m.
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.
