Rocks Off is not going to make this long, because we don't have much to say. But it's important.
If you haven't filled in your choices for this year's Houston Press Music Awards, you don't have much time. The nominations are still open at our handy little HPMA poll page, but it closes at midnight. So if you go there at 12:01 a.m. Thursday, as in tomorrow, you'll be too late. Remember one nomination ballot per person, please.
We're very excited to see who gets nominated this year, because musically it's been an interesting 12 months around Houston. It usually is.
This year's HPMA ballot will be announced next Thursday, right here of course. The showcase has been set for Sunday, August 4. Location is still TBD.
Enjoy your day. Good luck to all the future nominees.
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.
