Here's Our 2013 HPMA Showcase Schedule For You

After much consideration and more maneuvering than the average Air Force test pilot -- or at least as much, anyway -- it gives Rocks Off great pleasure to announce the lineup of this year's Houston Press Music Awards showcase, featuring fortysomething 2013 HPMA nominees performing within blocks of one another on Sunday, August 4.

This year's showcase is engineered for your maximum enjoyment: you won't have to walk far between any of our eight stages, and the price you'll pay is about half of an average show these days, with ten or 20 times the talent.

Tickets are on sale now for only $10, and you can get them right here. They'll be $15 on showcase day, but that's still, well, a steal for this kind of talent -- the best Houston has to offer. See HPMusicAwards.com for everything else you might want to know, and check out the schedule below.

and it's not a complaint, really, but an observation - and then the bands on the showcase tend to win.... hmmmm. I am always happy for nomination but am starting to feel like the stepchild in this relationship. Just sayin'

Been nominated three times in last 5 years under Best latin as well as Best Female. I called last time because I have never been asked to be in the showcase and the response from Houston Press was "luck of the draw". Well I seem to be very unlucky while the same bands seem to always get an invite. Really? What gives?????
