It’s Monday, definitely not to be confused with Funday. This past weekend, on the other hand…
Texas Hip-Hop at Fitzgerald’s
Shea Serrano headed up to Fitz on Saturday night for Heroes, SuperROOT, H.I.S.D and Lower Life Form. He brought back tales of sloppy hipsters, wacky homeless people and top-notch hip-hop.
The Houston Press Holiday Party at Azteca’s Bar & Grill
Everyone gathered together for a night of drinking. We would tell you more, but we’ve got a confidentiality clause that puts the Scientologists to shame. Okay, not really, but it’s all kind of hazy. There wasn’t a copier available, however, so it couldn’t have been that bad.
Chris Gray Totally Hearts Billy Joel
We’re not sure why it took our assistant music editor so long to admit he has a thing for the piano man, but on Sunday he finally outed himself. He may be right. We may be crazy. But it just may be…okay, okay, we’ll stop right there.
The Houston Texans Took Down the Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Sage Rosenfels threw for three touchdowns as the Texans beat the Bucs 28-14. Mark C. Austin brought back a ton of pics, including quite a few shots of cracked-out fans, and Jason Friedman turned to superfan Troggie, who offered up a no-holds-barred take on the Texans (not to mention the Rockets).
Happy Hanukkah, people. Start spinning. – 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.
