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

Only about 48 hours now, so here are a half-dozen more HPMA nominees to tide you over. First, Best New Act and Indie Rock nominees Wild Moccasins speaking "Spanish and Jazz":

Best Country nominee Miss Leslie and her Juke Jointers say "Yes Ma'am," from none other than Luckenbach, Texas:

The Tontons are nominated for multiple awards (Best Local Album - Sea and Stars EP, Best New Act and Best Female Vocalist - Asli Omar), so here's a double dip from last month's Lebowski bash at Caroline Collective:

Perpetual nominees Southern Backtones (Best Songwriter, Hank Schyma) haven't eaten in "Forever." Hands up, all those who've shopped at this Foodarama:

Best New Act and Experimental Nominee Hearts of Animals wasn't the only one with a bad case of "Hearts Break" when Proletariat closed in February:

And we'll close out with Best Roots Rock nominees Born Liars, who know a thing or two about last call, at Rudz last year:

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.
