After getting off to a lukewarm start, it seems as if Space City finally decided to get in the game, and all it took was a reference to maritime inebriation. It's only natural that a Texas port city would find that a rallying point. That said, here's the much-anticipated second installment of H-Town Hangman, where you pit your knowledge of Houston's music scene against all the other Web-trawling denizens of our fair burg's digital underground, in the hopes of winning, well, whatever the mystery band decides to give you. (It'll be sweet, though). Hopefully you know the rules this time - don't comment if you shouldn't be, and in the off chance you win this thing, please leave some sort of contact information. Oh, and by the way, we've tried to make it a bit more challenging this go-round. Number of Members: Five Original Members: Two This Lineup Since: 2006 Non-Natives: Pretty sure we're all from Texas Median Age: If we round up, 34 Most Recent Release: 2006 Most Common Inaccurate Comparison: Pavement, Wilco, Replacements, Rolling Stones, and the year 1996 Most Common Accurate Comparison: Not really any of those bands. And we actually sound a lot more like 1995. Random Fact: All of us drive fairly new Hondas. Our practice space parking lot looks like a car commercial. OK, you know the drill. Let's hope so, anyway.
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.
