So I was sitting in the office writing up a list of new CDs to put you in a Halloween-type mood (email me and I’ll tell you what they were) when I thought, ‘Hell, with all this music tonight, there’s no reason to sit at home listening to CDs.’ Seriously, I know it’s Halloween and everything, but just look at all this. Furthermore, without being overly familiar with all of the artists listed below, I bet you at least 75 percent of them are local. So, once and for all, don’t let anyone ever tell you Houston doesn’t have a formidable music scene – or if they do, for God’s sakes don’t believe them for a second. And whatever you do tonight, be sure to pour one out for

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.
