Rocks Off Now Seeking New Freelancers, Intern

Hey everybody: did you know that Rocks Off is the only Houston media team that brings regular music coverage to America's fourth-largest city?

It's true. Monday through Friday and frequently on the weekends, we are busting our ass to let you all know what's happening in the wild n' crazy music world, both in the Bayou City and beyond. The other guys? We could name names, and almost did, but just scroll through any other Houston newspaper, magazine, Web site or TV station's wares to see how interested in music -- especially local music -- they are, and we promise you it's not a whole hell of a lot. Not as much as we are, to be sure.

Now, if you are also interested in music, we'd be delighted if you'd join us. Right now Rocks Off is looking to add to our team of freelancers. Is this as much fun as it looks? Pretty much. And it pays.

If you're interested, and why wouldn't you be, just drop us a line at [email protected] or on Twitter at @hprocksoff. (Tweet us and we'll just ask you to email, but feel free.) Please send a couple of writing samples or links to your work. Photography and video skills are a definite plus, as is a strong social-media presence. Do we even need to mention that anymore?

We are also looking for an intern for the fall semester -- there's still time, though not much. Important: you must be enrolled in a class that will award college credit for the internship. It's not enough to just be in college, although we admire your commitment to a quality education.

Thank you, Houston. For reading and (to the music scene) being so damned interesting. We look forward to hearing from you.
