FPSF 2017 Recap: Looking To The Future

FPSF 2017 Recap: Looking To The Future

Getting older isn’t fun in some regards, especially when you’re around those who seem to get younger every year. For many of us who have covered FPSF more than five times, the lineups are usually filled with names we know and some we have no idea about. While this year was filled with plenty of names I wasn’t familiar with; the festival itself was far better than what we experienced last year…

Get To Know Rose Ette Ahead of FPSF

Get To Know Rose Ette Ahead of FPSF

Standing out however, has never really been a problem for Houston’s Rose Ette. Forming a bit over three years ago, the band that felt like a side project in the beginning has gained more than enough steam since this time last year. Even after lineup changes, and having to bow out of a festival due to remarks made by the festival’s owner, Rose Ette has kind of done things their own way while expanding on what feels like a growing fan base with each and every show that they play.…

Get To Know Kay Weathers Ahead of FPSF

Get To Know Kay Weathers Ahead of FPSF

In music today there are multiple versions of genres, that the phrase sub-genre doesn’t really apply. With electro pop, or shoegaze, or even singer songwriter genres, you can think of artists almost immediately. With an artist like Kay Weathers, there’s pretty no way to put your finger on what sound she could be categorized with…

Get To Know Deep Cuts Ahead of FPSF

There are more than enough models that each act seems to follow, but for the longest time, it's felt like there were some that really were in it for the long haul. Houston's Deep Cuts has been grinding hard since their inception, while growing as artists and performers in front of everyone's eyes. While their original sound was closer to that of bands like Vampire Weekend and The Strokes, it didn't take long for the band to steer far away from that sound into a more focused direction.…

Get To Know The Wheel Workers Ahead of FPSF

A couple of years ago while record shopping, I stumbled across a double vinyl record from a band called The Wheel Workers, and the fact that it was ever released was one factor that intrigued me. To date, I don’t know any other unsigned or local bands that would release a double album, nor do I know of any who’d have it pressed to colored vinyl either…

After FPSF: Things Have Definitely Changed

After FPSF: Things Have Definitely Changed

Every year, the one thing that I look forward to is covering the yearly Free Press Summer Fest. In fact, the festival itself was one of the deciding factors when applying to write for Free Press Houston three years ago. No matter what was happening at music festivals around the country, Houston had its own music festival with FPSF, and the beauty of it was that it felt like it was ours…

Started a decade ago, the organization helps those in need whether it be through treatment facilities or just by offering someone to reach out to.

This weekend, the organization adds Free Press Summer Fest to their list of festivals where they offer help and information to those in need…

In the past five years, Quick has gone from relative unknown artist to dropping three releases and grabbing some pretty nice gigs along the way.

Getting To Know The FPSF Locals: King Finn

Getting To Know The FPSF Locals: King Finn

For most bands, the tough times don’t really come until they’ve been together for over a decade. However, earlier this year Houston’s King Finn was dealt a devastating blow when founding member and guitarist Alan Huynh passed away just shy of the band’s three year anniversary…
