Leon casino,

Our on-going weekly post where we shamelessly hype our own weekly badass local showcase because when The Free Press puts on event, you know you need to be there.

The Ton Tons - This band is a monster. Between Asli Omars breathy vocals and Adam Martinez powerful guitar work the band packs a punch like no other band in Houston. At its best, the band sneaks up on you with Asli's vocals then knocks you out with a heavy ass riff.

Kam - Continuing with the brilliant femme singers is Kam who can jump from style to style with so much grace and skill that to describe her within the context of a particular genre would be unjust.

Arthur Yoria - And speaking of adventurousness, Yoria has been hauling it around on a wheelbarrow. Houston's pop prince is releasing 12 downloads through October on and letting you pick the 10 best for his upcoming release. That's nutters in the best sense of the word.

Elaine Greer - And speaking of nutters, we're nutters for Elaine Greer's clever melodies, engaging vocals, and sharp songcraft. Alone or with the Holly Hall, she's one of the many girls in Houston putting the boys to shame. Or to put it another way we think she's neat.

Hueman (formerly Snowshoe & Lewis) - A smooth sophisticated crew who call their style "melodically soulful alternative rock" and their skillful combination of various styles bear out the claim.

Woozy Helmet - These clever Austin indie rockers put on great shows that are always bounding with energy and guiltless joy. Woozy is how most of us feel after one of their shows.
