Some people have been asking when we will announce the nominations for this year's Houston Press Music Awards. Hard to believe it's already the middle of June; seems like just the other day we were mopping the sweat off our brow from Summer Fest, and now it's almost time for fireworks. Actually, it's always time for fireworks.
But trust us, we haven't forgotten about the HPMAs. How could we? We've just been under the hood, fine-tuning the nomination process as the awards get ready to enter their second quarter-century in August. (Honestly, they're still getting used to being able to rent a car.)
However, before you all head off to Galveston or New Orleans or the Hill Country for the weekend, we figured we can at least show you the wonderful artwork for this year's HPMAs. More information to come next week. It'll be...revolutionary.
ROCKS OFF'S GREATEST HITS
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.
