Please Join Us For the HPMA Ceremony at Warehouse Live Tonight

Rocks Off would like to formally (or informally) invite our readers to tonight's Houston Press Music Awards Ceremony at Warehouse Live. The event opens to the public at 7 p.m., and the program starts at 8. It's free, y'all.

HPMA-nominated artists the Tontons (with Best Female Vocals nominee Asli Omar), PuraPharm (Female Vocals/Tessa Kole, Best Modern Rock), Another Run (Best Modern Rock) and Bang Bangz (Best CD/LP/EP, Best Electronic Act) will perform. The lovely Theresa from 94.5 The Buzz is your host for the evening.

This year, for the first time, the nominees at our private pre-ceremony reception will vote on a special "Band Peer Choice" wild-card award among all the HPMA nominees. That award will be announced at the end of the evening by yours truly, making my own return to the HPMAs after an... unexpected one-year hiatus.

Trust me, it's good to be back. It's always an interesting night, and fun too. Hope you can join us.
