Support the independent voice of Houston and help keep the future of Houston Press free.

This hilarious clip features cameos by John F. Kennedy, Barack Obama, the cast of Mortal Kombat (the video game, not the awful movie), a bunch of low-riders and some bangin' techno beats. Thanks to our pals at Free Press Houston. You know, the more Rocks Off thinks about it - remember, that's March 28, free all day and $20 for the sick evening festival at Numbers with St. Vincent (swoon), Valient Thorr (rawk!), Devin the Dude (puff, puff, give) and more - he's more excited about the Block Party than SXSW. Is that wrong?

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.
