Support the independent voice of Houston and help keep the future of Houston Press free.

After much consideration and more maneuvering than the average Air Force test pilot -- or at least as much, anyway -- it gives Rocks Off great pleasure to announce the lineup of this year's Houston Press Music Awards showcase, featuring fortysomething 2013 HPMA nominees performing within blocks of one another on Sunday, August 4.

This year's showcase is engineered for your maximum enjoyment: you won't have to walk far between any of our eight stages, and the price you'll pay is about half of an average show these days, with ten or 20 times the talent.

Tickets are on sale now for only $10, and you can get them right here. They'll be $15 on showcase day, but that's still, well, a steal for this kind of talent -- the best Houston has to offer. See HPMusicAwards.com for everything else you might want to know, and check out the schedule below.

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.
