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

Head Hickoid and longtime Austin scenester Jeff Smith has forwarded some MP3s of San Antonio's In and Outlaws, whose upcoming album marks Smith's first foray into producing and engineering. Smith, owner of the Saustex and Sauspop record labels in San Antonio, has long been known for deconstructing country classics and turning them into full-on, hell-for-leather punk songs. (Their take on the

Green Acres

theme is legendary in the annals of Texas cowpunk.)

Smith's collaboration with In and Outlaws seems like a perfect match, as "Danger Danger," from the upcoming release, shows the In and Outlaws to be coming from that same patch of Capt. Kirk Twang-warp that has always propelled the Hickoids.

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.
