Here at Rocks Off, we love our writers dearly, but there's always room for more; frankly, right now we could use a few more hands on deck. The best part of it is, lots of companies may be looking to expand this time of year, but this job doesn't end when all those Christmas trees are off fighting erosion at Crystal Beach. We'll send you off to review concerts, talk to the folks who make those shows happen, and perhaps tally up the best Houston songs ever made about sneakers (or something like that) every so often.
Here's what we're looking for: Bright, opinionated souls who are passionate about music and not shy about telling other people about it. It helps greatly to live in Houston, or at least nearby. Professional writing or other journalistic experience is certainly a plus, but not a requirement; so is time served in a band or as a DJ, sound engineer, bartender or anyone else who can speak with authority about the local scene and music/nightlife in general.
It's a lot of fun, but it's not as easy as it looks either. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if interested and we'll take it from there.
ROCKS OFF'S GREATEST HITS
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.
