So I’ve been in Houston just under 2 months and I went on a few interviews like I had mentioned in a previous post. Well, I was offered a position with the Houston Press! And I have to say I am extremely excited about the position and the company. I started Wednesday (yesterday) and I am a retail staff accountant, which will continue to expand my skill set. More excitingly the Houston Press has a lot of promotions with bands and events are planned, etc. It’s a lot of great exposure to local venues and music!
The next event coming up is 2010 Houston Press – Music Award, with Matt and Kim as headliners. So I thought I’d post a Matt and Kim track to prepare you and get hyped up (with more to come)! The event is on August 7th and entrance is only $15 if you prepay ($20 at the door).
In addition to Matt and Kim, 60 other bands on 11 stages will be playing, so it’s going to be a full day of great music! Admittedly, I haven’t heard of many of the bands, since I am new to the area, but with 60+ bands I’m sure there are a few that will be worth listening too. Lineup
Anyways, I encourage you to check it out and if you’re in the Houston area and free that Saturday, why not come out and enjoy the music?!
