I might not have seen Moby or Lou Reed or any other notables, but if I were on a scavenger hunt I think I’d be winning. So far at South By I’ve seen:
Five guys dressed in all white standing on street corner.
A little person pushing another little person in a wheel chair.
A parade of Asian drummers down 6th street.
Two clown minstrels.
A white guy with dreadlocks (oh wait, I’m in Austin, that’s not strange). But with momentum like this I’m sure I’ll find more. Now all we need is a point system… -- Dusti Rhodes
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.
