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

With Perseph1 and Babel Fishh tearing it up on the mike yesterday, we're a little disappointed with today's first offering, Evak 1. Fast paced flows, that weren't fast enough to keep the audience interested. Dude sounds like Marky Mark (and actually kind of looks like a rough draft of the Funky Bunch leader.) His backing band broke two crucial rules of the game: Drummers shouldn't listen to click tracks and guitarists should NEVER sit down. Sorry dudes, but the crowd seemed as willing to listen to you as your guitarist did to stand up.

Something Fierce's Niki.7 agrees: "What if 50 Cent sat on a stool?"

He'd be 25 Cent.

We're looking for a little more, um, enthusiasm. We know it's hot, but we're out here on day 2 and still going strong.

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.
