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

Tuesday night at the Foo Fighters gig at Stubb's, which Rocks Off only heard, drummer Taylor Hawkins through a drum stick out into the crowd, as per the norm for the smiley rock skinsman.

But the best part was hearing about what happened after the stick hit the crowd. Bill Jensen, Director of New Media for Village Voice Media, was next to the fight that broke out over said stick.

Thankfully, the fracas didn't end in bloodshed, just the stick's being broken in half, in King Solomon fashion as to avoid death and dismemberment.

It's just a stick, dudes. Where do you think you are, Houston? Also, why fight a chick for a piece of wood a man has just sweated on for 30 minutes?

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.
