As Father's Day approaches, you might want to do a lot of things with your dad: fishing, a ball game, or maybe you'd like to doll yourselves up and record a video of yourselves in a heartbreakingly epic duet of Eddie Money's "Take Me Home Tonight?" You might want to sing your heart out even though you look ridiculous. Most of all, you could believe in yourself like a good father would've taught you to. That's apparently what ex-high-school music teacher and aspiring rock star Sky Smith did, and boy, is it something else. Now either this is what is cool, or everything else in the world except this is. You'll have to decide for yourselves. Now if you'll excuse us, Rocks Off is going to go buy this man's CD because, well, we know we're not cool, so Sky Smith must be.
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.
