Support the independent voice of Houston and
help keep the future of the Houston Press free.
We get loads of music-related junk in the mail. Sometimes it's cool, like the PitchControl TV Mixtape DVD we received Saturday evening that's stuffed with video of Houston rap. Sometimes it's awful (we've got a smidge of tact, so we won't name any specific artist here). About two weeks ago, we received a CD from a group called The Renaldo The Ensemble. Really, we don't know how to classify them - "absurdist" seems like the right word, but mostly because their PR guy said so - other than to say that they're bundles of witty fun. Check 'em out here.
KEEP THE HOUSTON PRESS FREE...
Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
