This afternoon, Rocks Off heads down to the cradle of Nolan Ryan and instrumental metallers By the End of Tonight to play a few sides from some bands our dear readers nominated for this years Houston Press Music Awards. Rocks Off should be hitting the air around 4 p.m. today on KACC (89.7 FM), the radio station run by Alvin Community College's own broadcasting department. We profiled Lost Fidelity, the show we'll be guesting on, a few weeks back and were delighted to find that they have more than their fair share of devoted Inner Loop listeners. David Rangel and Brad Denison are true music fans who definitely have a penchant for the cool new noise coming out of the 713 (and 281) and are not afraid to play local stuff.
On today's show, we'll be spinning a cross-section of Houston's own best and brightest, including Roky Moon & Bolt, Buxton, Little Joe Washington and our fanboy favorite, Benjamin Wesley. We are also hoping to premiere a song from the Tontons' as-yet unreleased self-titled full-length.
We were attempting to bring a few Homopolice tracks to the station this afternoon but Alvin has strict vice codes. We'll be wearing our pink Homo tee in their honor, though.
