  • Action Town Records has some sexy photos of the new typographically-pleasing Something Fierce 7", now availble through their online store. They also found some long-lost copies of Teenage Kicks' LP "Uptight" pressed on brown vinyl.
  • DJ Dave Wrangler has a new mash-up EP out called N.A.S.A. vs. YACHT, "comprised of songs from N.A.S.A.'s "Spirit of Apollo" and YACHT's "See Mystery Lights" that are mixed and mashed together..."
  • Girls Guide To Rocking author Jessica Hopper is not coming to Houston in the spring, as previously reported, but she is doing book talks at SxSW. Sad face. Houston - always the bridesmaid.
  • The Energy, who opened for the late Jay Reatard last month, have released two songs from their upcoming debut album, they announced on Hands Up.
  • Finally, Bill Vonderhaar, a Houston student at The High School for the Performing and Visual Arts, was chosen to perform in the 2010 Grammy Jazz Ensembles, a group of highly-talented high school musicians and vocalists from across the U.S. The Ensembles perform at various Grammy week events. The students get to attend the 52nd Annual Grammys on Jan. 31 as guests of The Recording Academy and will perform at the official Grammy Celebration Afterparty. Vonderhaar plays bass.
  • 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.
