The Best Things We Overheard at the HPMA Showcase
"We don't fucking live there! We live in Houston, Texas."
"That's my car! It's still alive!"
"I'm fat. Let's party!" (T-shirt outside Dirt Bar)
"I hate that Dirt Bar!"
"Why can't they stagger the showtimes?! Every single hour, I have to make a decision that breaks my heart!"
"Want my extra drink tickets? I'm not gonna use 'em."
"What can I get with them?"
"Two Bud Lights or one Citron."
"Ehhh, no thanks, I'm good."
"A friend of mine almost talked me into going to Warped Tour today. I would have been really pissed off at myself if I'd paid $50 to go see a bunch of screamo bands I grew out of eight years ago instead of this."
One Latino to another, walking away from Ben's Beans before the La Sien set: "I wouldn't say I don't like Latin music -- yeah... I don't like it."
"Please tell me that's a fucking wig." -- about American Fangs' singer, Gabriel Cavazos. It was a wig.
