For music, this September is electric for Houston. A wild coterie of artists are coming to town, blessing the monthly mixtape with their forays into the digital music space. The Kills (September 9, White Oak Music Hall) have turned down their bass on their latest album Ash and Ice, while Tegan and Sara (September 16, Warehouse Live) have folded up their flannels on Love You to Death, bringing their new sounds through H-Town. Plus there's still plenty of old electronic pros playing shows, including Crystal Castles (September 10, White Oak Music Hall) and Kanye West (September 20, Toyota Center).
Don't forget about getting out for our beloved Houston bands; lots are playing this month, including Young Mammals (September 23, White Oak Music Hall), Adam Bricks (September 28, Raven Tower) and Wrestlers (September 29, White Oak Music Hall).
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.
