Rocks Off is pleased as punch to announce that Houston mash-up maestro Dave Wrangler will be providing the tunes for our douche-tastic "Washington Shore" party at the Washington Avenue Drinkery on February 11. Wrangler also agreed to craft some custom Washington Shore mash-ups we'll be bringing you as the gelfest gets closer; we have no idea what he might be cooking up for that, except that it probably involves a whole lotta Jovi. In the meantime, Wrangler has been plenty busy. He's got another album of mix-and-match tracks, Under the Influence, scheduled to drop February 1, and has already put this remix of SXSW '10 must-sees
up for download via his Soundcloud page. Or perhaps sir or madame would prefer something from his recent N.A.S.A. vs. YACHT EP (which is included on Influence). We like
which loops Scarface, Ghostface Killah and the Cool Kids, but if your tastes run more toward
, Wrangler's gotcha covered there too.
Rocks Off will keep you posted on "Washington Shore" developments as we continue to firm them up like The Situation's abs. At the moment, if any of you mooks and bennys out there know where we can get a good deal on a whole buncha bronzer, let us know. We'll see you at the Drinkery on February 11. The party is free, and luckily so is the clinic.
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.
