Welp, it's been a year to say the least. There has been so much great music, amazing shows, new discoveries, many sad and happy milestones, and Rocks Off tried to cover all of it these past 12 months.

Next year will be even more awesome, for so many reasons, which we will get into the next two weeks. Which local rapper is about to sign a big record deal? Which local rock act is set to set SXSW on fire in March? Where will we be seeing shows in 2012? Will 2012 end in a great ball of fire and madness as the Mayan calendar predicted? There is no way to know, but we're sure Rocks Off will be there to make a Top 10 list about.

"Top 10 Songs To Listen To As The World Falls Down Around You!"

We have partnered with some of yours and our favorite locals to give you some free music this weekend. Some donated whole albums, while others are giving you select songs. Most of the links go to these artist's Bandcamp or Soundcloud pages that allow you to hear even more music from them. If you are into that.

Oh, and sorry-slash-you-are-welcome for that Christmas art above. A happy Whoop Whoop to you and yours this holiday season.

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.
