It is that time of year again. Once again, the bad-ass mo-fo's over at the Free Press Houston have arranged for a tremendous weekend of music, art, insanity, and carousing, or as it is called, the WESTHEIMER BLOCK PARTY!
This twice-a-year event grows and grows each time, and is always a tremendous blast to attend. From the over two hundred and fifty local and regional bands, to the ideal people-watching, to the cold, cold beverages on sale, this weekend promises to be a good time for all.
Of course, the Block Party is free for all to attend, with at least ten different stages set up around the axis of the corner of Taft and Westheimer. On Saturday night, the main headliner will be a performance by Dead Prez and Japanther, which will take place at the infamous Numbers Nightclub, and will cost a measly $12 to get in!!!! CHEAP!
Here are the schedules for Saturday's half of the Block Party.
Here are the schedules for the Sunday half of the Block Party.
The last Block Party in the Spring of 2009 was a massive success, and ended with a tremendous set by the one and only Devin The Dude. This year's fest will expand to two days so be ready and pace yourselves on Saturday! If you can ride a bike to the Block Party all the better, as parking gets quite funky by the time festivities are fully in effect. So, if you find yourself in Houston TX this weekend, head into Montrose for a free party you will wish never ends. HERE is a map of the location.
