Houston rock band We Were Wolves performs this Saturday (6.6.15) at Free Press Summer Festival. The group’s set is sure to start off a blistering weekend of music.
The foursome–vocalist/guitarist Drew Haught, guitarist Vinc Prihoda, bassist Chris Badger, and drummer Zach Elizondo–releases its Ruin Your Weekend EP on June 16th, and recently premiered the lead single from the EP on DIFFUSER.FM. You can find out more information about We Were Wolves at the band’s website or on Facebook.
Here’s a couple of videos to hold you over until Saturday:
We Were Wolves plays at Free Press Summer Festival this Saturday (6.6.15) at 12:20pm on the Jupiter Stage.
The Damnwells–back with the original line-up of Alex Dezen, Ted Hudson, Steven Terry, and Dave Chernis–returns to Houston this Friday (6.5.15) to play a headlining show at Fitzgerald’s. The band also plays a free in-store show on Friday at Cactus Music at 3pm.
The band’s latest self-titled release is its first with the original line-up in seven years. You can pick up the new album at the shows here in Houston or at online music stores. You can also get The Complete Bedhead EPs, from singer/guitarist Alex Dezen, via Bandcamp.
Band of Horses is one of the many stripped-down, countrified rock bands out today, but the band is near the top of the pack and an excellent additional to this year’s Free Press Summer Fest line-up. The group’s early releases are undoubtedly its best, however 2014’s live release, Acoustic At The Ryman, shows not only the depth of the band’s songwriting but also how well its songs work in both the rock and acoustic environments.
The band’s set at Free Press Summer Festival 2015, which runs June 6-7 at NRG Park, is sure to draw a large crowd.
You can buy Band of Horses’ music at any online music store, and can listen to songs on Rdio.com.
Here are some videos from the band:

Tears for Fears is a great surprise on this year’s Free Press Summer Festival line-up. I still remember listening to the band’s cassettes on my knock-off Walkman while walking to and from high school. “Pale Shelter” ranks high among my favorites, but “Head Over Heels” is up there as well. The group was huge in the Eighties, and you likely know at least a couple of the band’s songs even if you don’t recognize the band’s name.
Here’s a few videos from the band, including a cool recent live show via Spotify.
You can catch the iconic Tears for Fears at Free Press Summer Festival on Saturday, 6.6.15, at 6:5opm on the Neptune Stage.
NOTE: Please remember that FPSF has been moved to NRG Park.
The seventh annual FREE PRESS SUMMER FESTIVAL (FPSF) will move forward as planned next weekend (Saturday, June 6 and Sunday, June 7) in Houston. The FPSF team remains committed to producing the event their fans have come to expect and the decision was made to relocate the 2015 event to an area adjacent to the city’s beloved Astrodome and NRG Park (Yellow Lot; 1 NRG Park). This move has been facilitated and aided by the cooperation of the City Of Houston Mayor’s Office Of Special Events and NRG Park. This temporary move is being implemented over saturated ground in the park and to not cause any further damage to the newly renovated ELEANOR TINSLEY PARK–parts of which were submerged with more than 35 feet of water. The safety of the guests, artists and staff is of the utmost concern to festival organizers. As part of the relocation plans, discussions are in place for a portion of the proceeds to be donated for flood relief to our neighbors throughout the region. “We come from the school of thought that the ‘show must go on,’” says FPSF co-founder Omar Afra. “We’re looking forward to coming together as we do every June for a great festival.” “Moving forward with the show underlines the perseverance that we as Houstonians have and the dedication we have to our community,” says co-founder Jagi Katial.
Beyond the site move, the FPSF 2015 weekend will proceed as planned and all original tickets will be honored at the new location. Doors will open at 10:00 AM with music kicking off at 11:00 AM.
Last year, Deep Cuts released its debut EP, Love Grows, cementing the group’s place among Houston’s indie upstarts. The band has earned itself a slot st this year’s Free Press Summer Festival–which is June 6-7, 2015 in Eleanor Tinsley Park–and is sure to gain new fans as a result. You can get passes to the festival online at fpsf.com.
Houston’s Second Lovers perform at this year’s Free Press Summer Festival, which is next weekend (June 6-7, 2015) in Houston’s Eleanor Tinsley Park. The band–vocalist/guitarist Nicolas Morales, vocalist Chelsea Renee, bassist Sean Spiller, drummer Josh Hammond, multi-instrumentalist John Maxwell, and guitarist Thomas Truver–has been around the local music scene since 2010. The group’s blend of folksy, rock-influenced Americana brings to mind summery, 70s-era Laurel Canyon rock.
Here’s the band’s promo for its set at Free Press Summer Festival:
Second Lovers plays at FPSF on Saturday, 6.6.15, at 12pm on the Neptune Stage. Be sure to come out early to catch the group’s set.
