Tonight's HPMA ceremony should be wrapping up around 10 p.m., so don't forget to check here for a complete winner's list (provided you're near a computer, that is). That'll be just in time to head over to Boondocks for indie-folk duo Papermoons' - whose recent debut LP New Tales is a shoo-in for a 2009 Best Local Album nomination, at this early, early date anyway - last show as a Houston band. One member is moving to Austin (sigh), the other back to his native Ohio; they promise the hiatus is not permanent and they'll be back. We can only hope. New Tales is available at www.teamsciencerecords.com. Elaine Greer opens. - Chris Gray
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.
