Launch & Showcase
FYI Houston™ presents the 5th Annual Winter Launch & Showcase – January 21st, Houston, TX.
On January 21st, FYI Houston will launch the 18th seasonal issue online and host a “private” event at Houston’s Indigo Lounge in Midtown. The purpose of the launch party is to showcase featured artists, comedians, singers, painters, poets and businesses from current or past issues.
This event allows talent and business opportunity to connect, collaborate, and innovate. The winter 2017 issue will celebrate the lauch of a 5th year bridging the gap in Houston’s underground entertainment community. “We are thankful for the continued support from Houston’s Underground, and look forward to sparking synergies that will build, advance and enhance the entertainment culture, and community, in Houston.” – FYI Houston
FYI Houston released the first quarterly issue in fall 2012. The initial magazine used the tagline, “Your Source for Underground Entertainment”. That issue highlighted many of Houston’s underground entertainers, most being local acts, and others who were visiting Houston during the time of publication! Unlike today, the staff did not originally plan a launch party, but only celebrated the launch with a party amongst staff.
The staff began to incorporate fashion and business with entertainment; which diversified the platform of exposure to include individuals overcame similar roadblocks. The new direction birthed the new tagline, “Your Source from the Underground”.
This change also sparked the conversation to host a launch party with each seasonal issue, which allowed the staff to embark on the annual launch and showcase series. In fall 2016, the magazine had to cancel the fall issue due to venue factors outside the control of staff and volunteers. “We are happy to launch the 5th Annual Launch & Showcase series, and look forward to your support!” – FYI Houston
Attendees value the networking opportunities which allow everyone to leave with new projects and relationships within the FYI Houston network of current/past supporters, features, partners, sponsors, advertisers, bloggers, staff and more.
