93.7 FM Now Marching to a New Beat

TheBeat-1231.jpg
As many of you now know, around noon today 93.7 FM ceased to become a classic-rock station -- good riddance, some say -- and flipped formats to hip-hop and R&B, rechristening itself "The Beat."

Thus far, according to 937thebeathouston.com, songs have included Sevyn Streeter and Chris Brown's "It Won't Stop," Slim Thug and Z-RO's "Summertime," Hustle Gang's "Memories Back Then," Drake and Rick Ross's "Hold On, We're Going Home" and Destiny's Child's "Soldier."

Rocks Off has a radio specialist now monitoring The Beat and will report our findings New Year's Day. Happy New Year!

"We all need a little fuel to get the engine going every now and then, and 'Gwan' is that fuel."
-- Kam Franklin, lead singer of The Suffers

From the very first notes of "Gwan," the newly recorded track by Houston Press Music Award winners the Suffers, the listener is hit with the "we mean business" attitude and brilliant power that fans have come to love and expect. "Gwan" is the first single off the group's much-anticipated and soon-to-be-released full-length debut album.

Lady Gaga Throwing a Houston artRAVE July 16

Lady Gaga in her unmentionables at Toyota Center, 2010
Another week, another ginormous pop tour. Actually, this one doesn't look quite as epic as One Direction's Reliant Stadium takeover in August, but we can almost guarantee you the costumes will be way better.

This morning Live Nation announced that Mother Monster herself, Lady Gaga, will bring her artRAVE: The ARTPOP Ball 2014 tour to Toyota Center on Wednesday, July 16, 2014. We know, that's a long ways off, but just in the nick of time for all the Little Monsters (or their parents) to snap up tickets in time to stuff in their garishly decorated stockings, hung by the chimney with care.

Those Little Monsters will even have access to their own presale starting at 2 p.m. today; locate the Houston event listing at Littlemonsters.com and RSVP. Limit four tickets per member. Card members with Citi, the tour's official sponsor, get their own presale that starts tomorrow at 10 a.m. via citiprivatepass.com.

Save the Date: Houston Gets a Postcard From One Direction

1dpostcard-1125.jpg
This is just fucking adorable.
Amid the promotional blitz surrounding their new album Midnight Memories, Britain's One Direction -- currently the biggest band on the planet, boy or otherwise -- announced a summer 2014 stadium tour that includes an August 22 show at Reliant Stadium.

The group's biggest tour to date, "Where We Are 2014" is being heralded with a series of city-specific postcards like the one above, which are just darling. Luckily the Texans have jersey No. 14 at the moment, so the team might as well consider giving Liam, Harry, Louis, Niall and/or Zayn a tryout while they're in the building. Couldn't hurt.

Your Houston Press Artopia 2014 Bands: Electric Attitude, Featherface & Deep Cuts

Artopia-1118.jpg
The Houston Press and Rocks Off are proud to announce the musical lineup for our sixth annual Artopia, set for Saturday, January 25, once again at Winter Street Studios (2101 Winter St.). While you admire the creations of some of the Bayou City's top visual artists and fashion designers, Artopia's Music Stage will be rocked, rolled and thoroughly funked up by Houston's own Electric Attitude, Featherface and Deep Cuts.

Still riding high off their superfly 2013 album Skintight & Solid Gold -- which the band reports is now being ordered from as far away as France and Switzerland -- Electric Attitude has all kinds of shizz going on right now, hardly limited to their opening gigs for Girl In a Coma at Numbers Thanksgiving Saturday and Har Mar Superstar New Year's Eve at Walters(!).

Twerk Alert: Miley Coming to Toyota Center March 16

Categories: This Just In

Miley1106.jpg
We knew it was coming -- she announced it on SNL two weeks ago -- but now Houston knows when it will collide with the "Wrecking Ball."

This morning Live Nation announced that Miley Cyrus, controversial pop star and daughter of mullet royalty, will bring her Bangerz tour to Toyota Center on March 16. Tickets go on sale 10 a.m. Saturday, November 16 through livenation.com.

Since she stuck out her tongue and ground on Robin Thicke at the MTV VMAs in late August, Cyrus' ability to rile up the media has been unmatched by any pop singer in recent memory. But instead of wilting, she has come through it quite well, showing a quick sense of humor and determination not to take herself too seriously.
