You know you do. Between today and March 1 (aka Monday), one ticket-buyer per day will be selected at random to have their purchase upgraded to the "Golden Ticket" package, which includes two "Fancy Pants Weekend Passes," backstage access, food and drink - don't worry, there will be food and drink for everyone else too; you just have to pay for it - two official Summerfest T-shirts and autographed limited-edition Summerfest posters. Only tickets bought atfreepresssummerfest.com
will be eligible. Hard tickets are also on sale now for $22.50 at Cactus Music and Soundwaves (Montrose location only). For more information go there orpegstar.net
. If you've already forgotten who's playing Summerfest (besides the Lips, of course), the sick-ass poster - coming soon to a T-shirt near you, provided you live around Mango's - is after the jump.
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.
