Thanks to the folks at Idolator for letting us know that “Rockin’ in the Free World,” Dusty Horwitt‘s in-depth story about the trials and tribulations of the Rockville band Hotspur, received an honorable mention in this year’s edition of the Best Music Writing series. Horwitt tells a heck of tale, and I’m not just saying that as the guy who edited the piece. Please do give it a read.

Hotspur’s next local show is Aug. 16 at Jammin’ Java.
