Hard to believe it's already been almost two weeks since we put up the 2013 Houston Press Music Awards nomination ballot. This year has not been a slow one, that's for sure.
But now there is officially less than one week until the nominations close, which happens at the stroke of midnight next Thursday, May 23. We'll announce the nominees probably about a week later. (You'll know.) Nominate right here, please.
That's really about all we had to tell you today. Remember only one nomination ballot per person this year. But while we've got your attention, we figured it was a good time to show you some of last year's winners.
