What Kind of Music Is It? Irritable bowel syndrome rap.

Does He Know What "The Shocker" Is? His first single was called "Culo." You figure it out.

Appropriate Controlled Substance(s) for Pre-Show Raging? Sixpack of Bud Light and a Cohiba.

Can I Wear My Affliction T-Shirt? Maybe you could mix in some Ed Hardy.

Will There Be Chicks There? Yep. My high-school friends will be so happy to hear bald, schlubby guys are hot these days.

Will We Get into a Fight? Try handing out some pro-Castro literature.

Best Song(s) to Leave to Take a Dump? "I Know You Want Me (Calle Ocho)," "Feel This Moment."

Check Out the Show or Stay Home and Watch Catfish Kings? Push.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
