In terms of pure variety, the weekend of June 1-3 may be the most stacked weekend of music Houston will see this year, and that's not just because of Summer Fest. In addition to the wide variety of acts playing Eleanor Tinsley Park, there's the regular weekend mass of shows taking place across the city.
It's a weekend that includes a Texas treasure (Willie Nelson), a Rock and Roll Hall of Famer (Bobby Womack) and the world's richest beach bum (Jimmy Buffet); alternative old (Collective Soul) and new (Seether); the universally loved (Snoop Dogg) and often hated (Nickelback). Whether you want to rock, dance, party, get silly or get undressed, there's probably something out there for you.
Now some would look at this abundance of entertainment and fret about not having the time to see it all. Rocks Off has a different fret: all these artists in one place and few if any are going to collaborate. Seems like quite the missed opportunity to us.
That doesn't mean we can't dream, though. Consider all the possibilities, and feel free to suggest your own.
