Rocks Off is glad to announce that Shot in the Dark, our exhibition of concert photography that has appeared online and in the pages of the Houston Press, will return Thursday, May 17, at the War'Hous Visual Studios at 4715 Main in the Museum District.
This year, since it's at an actual art space, all the photos will be mounted on the walls. No easels necessary. There's a lot more room, so the photographers should be able to show more pictures than at last year's Warehouse Live event.
We are glad to welcome back from last year our photographers Jason Wolter, Mark C. Austin, Marc Brubaker, Jay Lee, Jim Bricker, Larami Serrano, Jody Perry, Eric Sauseda (Groovehouse), Marco Torres and Craig Hlavaty.
Trust us, they've been busy. Although we haven't heard back from him because he's been traveling, we certainly hope our newest photographer, Barry Sigman, is able to join us as well. Photos will be directly for sale straight from the men or women who took them.
The event runs from 7 to 10 p.m. One of our team is going to have to juggle Shot in the Dark and Drake at Toyota Center that night, but we're confident they can handle it. See? We never stop working.
DJ Elroy Boogie of the Kracker Nutz will be spinning only the hottest jams for your booty's enjoyment. The event is sponsored by Bud Light, so you know there will be a bar. It's free.
Further details to come, but for now save the date.
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.
