Local Bands Do Their Part to Unf*%k the World

What would it take to unf*%k the world?

There's hardly enough blog space to launch into discussions on the grand and ultimately futile gestures it might take to make this planet a utopia. But one local band has at least a small-scale blueprint to help a little.

Spread music and share food. That's the plan behind Saturday's Unf*%k the World Fest. A dozen bands will come together at Harrisburg Studios to raise tour funds for local hardcore band Versa Nova, while also collecting food for the Star of Hope Mission.

KEEP THE HOUSTON PRESS FREE... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Jesse’s been writing for the Houston Press since 2013. His work has appeared elsewhere, notably on the desk of the English teacher of his high school girlfriend, Tish. The teacher recognized Jesse’s writing and gave Tish a failing grade for the essay. Tish and Jesse celebrated their 33rd anniversary as a couple in October.
