OK, Rocks Off campers, here's fair warning right now that next week will be all about hair metal and Lady Gaga, leading up to the latter's two-night stand at Toyota Center next Sunday and Monday and the big Ratt show over at Warehouse Live on Thursday night.
All right, not everything will be about Gaga or Ratt. We really don't see Lonesome Onry and Mean listing his favorite Gaga outfits, or Rap Round Table dissecting her lyrics. But expect plenty of coverage leading up to the show. Just remember that after July 27 we will be solidly all about the Houston Press Music Awards.

Anyhow, we have been getting a glut (yes, a glut) of e-mails regarding Gaga giveaways, tickets and otherwise. Here's a quick rundown of a handful coming down the wire this weekend and the next.
- Virgin Mobile has a special offer going on, which offers free Gaga tickets in exchange for doing something for the homeless. If you sign up and donate ten sets of hygiene gear and deliver them in the time allotted to Covenant House off Lovett, you can win a ticket. This link has more info.
- Hush Nightclub off I-10 is giving away a pair Gaga tickets tonight and next Friday night as well. Ladies' Night is Fridays now, and there are cheap drinks from 9-11 p.m. each night.
- South Beach on Pacific St. in Montrose is having a drawing tonight and tomorrow night for a Gaga tickets. Expect the same drawing next weekend as well, with the names being selected around 1 a.m. By the way, happy ninth anniversary, boys!
- Not to be outdone, Meteor Lounge a few blocks away is rolling out tickets for the next two Saturdays, with unlimited chances to win. You can pretty much enter as much as you want.
As for Rocks Off, we don't have any free Gaga tickets to speak of. Seriously. Stop pounding on our windows here at the office and hiding out behind the building.
You too, Mom.
