Rock 'n Boil

Great local bands, free crawfish (for the first two hours) and the Hawaiian Tropic girls in bikinis. Ah, spring is a good time to be alive in Houston. This first of a (possibly) yearly series of Rock 'n Boils is an attempt to marry music with mudbugs. The lineup (in order) is Ashbury Keys, Moriah, Shawn Pander, Moses Guest, Gel and Overshot, all of whom will play sampler-friendly one-hour sets. Organizers promise that "A&R label/ talent scouts" will be in the audience (hmmm, could they be the middle-aged men with ponytails?) and are encouraging even bands not on the bill to drop off demos at the door. 18 and up.
KEEP THE HOUSTON PRESS FREE... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
