We were up in Austin this weekend, so we apologize if this version of Over the Weekend is a little heavy on the ATX. But first things first...
The Best of Houston Party
Lucky's Pub was packed Thursday night for the launch party for this year's Best of Houston issue.
Austin City Limits Music Festival in Austin
We covered a lot of ground in Zilker Park, bringing back photos and reviews of Beck, Foo Fighters, Sharon Jones, Against Me!, David Byrne, Erykah Badu, Bavu Blakes, Jenny Lewis, Octopus Project, Hot Chip, Old 97's, Drive-By Truckers and plenty of other bands.
We had a great time, but it's good to be back. -- Keith Plocek
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.
