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

As we mentioned Thursday, Houston’s music scene is so vast that when we draft the Houston Press Music Awards ballot each year, unfortunately a few deserving artists are bound to slip through our dragnet. That’s precisely why we created the Reader’s Choice category; it’s an opportunity for our readers to throw their support behind the equally deserving acts we might have missed.

Now that’s what we’re asking you to do here. If your favorite act somehow didn’t appear on Thursday’s ballot, now is the time to speak up. We’d prefer the votes be left on the comment scroll on this article, but if you’re more the Facebook type, that’s fine too. Just please help us out — one vote per person, and one artist per vote. By all means, though, encourage your friends to vote for their favorites too. Nominations will close at noon on Monday.

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.
