Just a few late-breaking notes before Rocks Off gets the hell out of here...
- Austin lo-fi garage trio Woven Bones has canceled its show at Mango's tonight. No reason was given; all the more reason to go see Lightning Bolt and Indian Jewelry at Khon's.
- Aurora Picture Show's screening of Willie Nelson's Fourth of July Celebration, a little-seen, never-released documentary about Booger Red's 1974 picnic in College Station, has been postponed until next Saturday, July 17, at 8 p.m. The lot across Tony Marron Park (808 N. York in the East End) is apparently too soggy and gross from all the recent rains. Aurora invites everyone to join them Sunday at Poison Girl for the World Cup and, well, drinking. A portion of the bar take will go to the local cinematic nonprofit. See more information here.
- Paul Wall is hosting a listening party for his latest album Heart of a Champion, which drops this coming Tuesday, from 6-9 p.m. this evening at Johnny Dang's store in Sharpstown Center. Free. Wall also performs on a USO tour of the Middle East from August 2-9.
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.
