Houston Press Music Awards
- What it is: an awards ceremony honoring the city’s diverse community of musicians
- The categories: Latin, folk, rock, country, and alternative, among others
- What the winners get: a beautiful trophy record, the chance to use a microphone not booby-trapped by a roadie
- What everyone gets: the satisfaction of supporting the Music Therapy Center of Houston
- Other honors of the evening: five acts will be inducted into the Houston Music Hall of Fame
- Who’s playing the concert: the Tontons, the Suffers, Thelastplaceyoulook, and Electric Attitude
- The Tontons: bright and breezy indie-rock outfit anchored by Asli Omar’s reedy voice, which alternates between frail and powerful
- The Suffers: 10-piece soul and R&B band whose massive brass section is nearly eclipsed by the quiet storm of frontwoman Kam Franklin
- Thelastplaceyoulook: cardigan-wearing metalheads who know exactly when to add a bit of tenderness to their grinding rock
- Electric Attitude: funk tinged with a bit of weirdness that makes it sound like it’s come down from the stars
