Complete HPMA showcase and awards coverage

Rocks Off: When and where was your first gig in Houston, and how did it go?

La Sien: Our first show was at Bohemeo's on a Wednesday night in 2009, we played for a handful of friends and we had our first stranger come up to us and tell us he enjoyed the songs, it made our night.

RO: What Houston-area venues do you play most often?

LS: Mango's lately; We are always excited to play at new venues around the city.

LS: RO: How often do you play in the area?

LS: Usually 2-3 times a month around town.

RO: Describe your sound in eight words or less.

LS: Passionate, zealous, spirited, accessible, powerful and fun.

RO: How did you come up with your name?

LS: We wanted it to be easy to pronounce in English or Spanish, and "Google" search-friendly.

RO: Where would you like yourself or your band to be in one year? Ten years? Forty?

In one year or in 40, we would want to open for international Spanish acts in Houston and have some opportunities to travel and play all kinds of festivals.
