Your 2012 Houston Press Music Awards Showcase Artists

It's here, the lineup for the 2012 Houston Press Music Awards showcase on Sunday, August 5.

We are still finalizing the roster of venues, but it is a triangle between House of Blues, Warehouse Live and Phul Court, the outdoor venue and food-truck gathering spot at 1311 Leeland, with a few more places to be added.

Remember, while supplies last, we've got a half-off/two-for-one deal on both GA tickets (regular price $10) and the VIP "Big Shot Ticket" package (now for $25). Get 'em while you can.
