Chris Gray and Brett Koshkin coming to you live from, well, Warehouse Live, where the Mighty Orq (above) is warming the slowly-arriving crowd with some bluesy guitar pyrotechnics. (Here's's Cactus Music's Quinn Bishop watching attentively.)

We've got the mobile command center set up at stage right (and even our own velvet rope to keep out the riff-raff). It's also next to WHL's ten-foot speaker cabinet, so we'll have no problems hearing the acceptance speeches. Sara Winter of WHL and the Messina Group just stopped by on her way to Snoop Dogg at Sam Houston Race Park. More in a bit.

Support the independent voice of Houston and help keep the future of Houston Press free.

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.
