Rocks Off Goes Live from Sugar Hill Tonight

Rocks Off will be the special guest "audience of one" on tonight's Live from Sugar Hill, the monthly hour-long live-music Webcast broadcast from the historic Southeast Houston studios. Tonight's musical guests are bluesy singer-songwriter Andrew Karnavas and veteran Tex-Mex power-poppers the Freddy Steady 5. Our interviewers will be Rosa Guerrero of KTRU's Mutant Hardcore Flower Hour and Sugar Hill producer Dan Workman.

Rocks Off is not exactly sure what it is he'll be doing besides just sitting there (and plugging the upcoming music awards at some point), but he's looking forward to finding out. He expects a preview of The Bridge, the new album from Karnavas' band and HPMA Best Blues nominees Runaway Sun (out this month), and hopefully a little chat with FS5 frontman Freddie "Steady" Krc, also the longtime drummer for Roky Erickson & the Explosives, about last week's Erickson show at the Continental. (The FS5 plays the Continental themselves later this evening.)

Sounds like a lot for just one hour. Tonight's episode, filmed by local production company Zenfilm, starts at 7 p.m. and will be streamed at www.outboundmusic.com/lfsh. Tune in - it won't cost you a thing.
