Each Wednesday, Rocks Off arbitrarily appoints one lucky local performer or group "Artist of the Week," bestowing upon them all the fame and grandeur such a lofty title implies. Know a band or artist that isn't awful? Email their particulars to [email protected].
Shortly ago, we received an email and Twitter message boasting the efforts of something called a Herney. Now, typically we steer away from anything named in proximity to any type of medical condition, because everyone knows that if you talk to someone that either has a disease or sounds like they have a disease then you can catch it immediately. We all saw The Crazies, right?
But persistence is an admirable trait, so we checked him out. Thank goodness for the unimpressive number of hernia-related deaths; were he named something like Canser, there's no way we would have chanced it. He turned out to be good. Really good, in fact; a motivated, sporadically fiery MC weaned on classic Houston gangster rap.
So we reached out to talk about Her-nays, President Obama smoking Swisher Sweets and alliteration. Keep it moving.
