At last... we've nailed down the lineup for this year's Houston Press Music Awards showcase Sunday, August 5. The venues are grouped into three clusters around downtown - Houston Pavilions, Warehouse Live and Phul Court - and some sort of transportation between the three (taxi or shuttle) will be available. We'll let you know.
To readers (and voters) get better acquainted with this year's showcase lineup, Rocks Off also asked each of them to fill out a brief survey basically introducing themselves. We will start running their responses... probably tomorrow. This thing is coming up soon.
