About the Event


The 23rd Annual Houston Press Music Awards Showcase is once again celebrating the city's local thriving music scene. The Showcase represents a diverse range of music genres and encourages community involvement in both the nomination and selection process.

Music lovers will be able to vote for their favorite local musicians online as well as on-site the day of the event. The winners of the showcase will be announced at the 2012 Music Awards Ceremony a few days after the showcase. This event is the city's premier local showcase for music fans and performers.
