Right now Rocks Off HQ looks more like a MASH unit as we slowly recover from this weekend's Westheimer Block Party. We won't be on the shelf for long - not with the Marleys, Dwight Yoakam, Neko Case and lots more coming up soon - but while we take a day or two to recover, we hope you enjoy these videos shot by intrepid lensmen Marc Brubaker and Craig Hlavaty, who in some cases risked life and limb to get their footage. It's almost like being in the mosh pit all over again. After the jump (and Little Joe), a spastic dancer at the KTRU Stage, Hula Hoop war, raging pit at Female Demand, prime rump shaking, very dark Benjamin Wesley and more. Boy, do we need a nap.
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.
