Gosh, it's almost a week away from Rocks Off's second Shot in the Dark photo show. Snuck up on us.
Today we just wanted to show you a few pictures you'll be seeing at War'Hous Visual Studios (4715 Main) next Thursday, May 17, from 7 to 10 p.m., like Marco Torres's striking photo of DJ Jazzy Jeff from this past SXSW (above). And lots more besides, nine photographers in all: Mark C. Austin, Jim Bricker, Marc Brubaker, Groovehouse, Craig Hlavaty, Jay Lee, Jody Perry, Marco Torres and Jason Wolter.
Remember, it's free, but you need to RSVP so we have your name at the door. (Crowd control and all that.) Just click this link here. Bring cash anyway, though, because if you see something you like, you can buy it directly from the artist.
You do need to be 21 years old to come, but there will be entertainment by DJ Elroy Boogie and complimentary beverages courtesy of our sponsors Bud Light, Red Bull and Effen vodka. Three great tastes that taste great together.
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.
