As many Houstonians and local festival fans know, Free Press Summer Festival doesn’t have the best reputation, but being loyal fans and lovers of music, we always stay hopeful. Despite complaints about the lineup when it was released, it had some fresh and promising acts. From DJs like Cashmere Cat and Jauz, to headliners like […]

Houston’s most anticipated summer festival is back with a lineup they released this morning. Headliners like Lorde, Solange, Aminé, Post Malone, Flume, and around 55 more acts are said to be performing across a four stage setup.

Built to Spill has discovered an incredible sound that is beyond just a hybrid of indie organic sounds and rock music.

“Home” is one of the songs that will be on the classics station when our generation is in our sixties. Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros have made an impression in our generation with just that one song. However, the band refused to be a one hit wonder. They have had three full-length albums released after […]

It’s the most wonderful time of the year!

So today as some of you may be aware the blind pre sale tickets for Free Press Summer Fest 2016 dropped at 10am. I anxiously waited refreshing the page, as one would, every second prior. Much to my disappointment the tickets were $109.50 with a $17 “fee”. Now I am not too shaken by this […]
