Houston never sleeps! Here’s the scoop on a few things you don’t want to miss in the Bayou City this summer:

BAV’s Adria LeCrone proves Black girls really DO rock!

Born Again Virgins have teamed up with local activist/social group WOMAN (the Women of Montrose Action Network) for a good cause. On July 24th, BAV is part of a lineup playing to benefit Girls Rock Camp Houston.British rockers Sabatta will visit the states, stopping in Houston long enough to grace the stage with Peekaboo Theory for one night only on July 29th.

I’ll make sure to get a Bold As Love exclusive while they’re on our side of the pond and will give more show details closer to the date.

As a native Houstonian, my heart will always belong to the music scene here. Not only are the majority of the artists I write about personal friends, but having witnessed the relentless grind ethics of the Houston music community since my earliest days, I have a genuine respect for the hard work they put into their crafts, while always managing to show love to the city. As such, I will be hosting a networking event geared towards Houston’s indie and DIY artists on August 18th at Boneyard Drinkery (8150 Washington Avenue) called Takin’ Care of Business. Fact: All artists need/have needed/will need professional services (graphic design, t-shirt design, production, etc.) and media exposure at some point.

Takin’ Care of Business will present artists with creative professionals, radio program directors, digital distributors, producers and more who are ready to do business and help propel careers to the next level. LocalLiveHouston.com will broadcast live from the event and the RTO Radio show will accept music submissions from artists for airplay. All this will be offered for FREE! Houston artists, you don’t want to miss this opportunity. More info: events@iwriteyoushouldread.com.
