Okay, so maybe we were wrong about the weather. Or maybe the weather man was wrong about the weather. 20 percent? It's looking like the rain is about to put on a show of its own. So, if you don't hear from us again, it's because we had to clear out of the "media center." Organizer JD says our room will become the second stage. Oh yes, the party will go on, but we can't blog in the rain. (Note to Apple: Make waterproof laptops.)
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.
