Summer Sounds

Enough shows to keep concertgoers busy all season long

Def Leppard, Cheap Trick, Poison

Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion

August 19

Take your pick of songs from this list if you think that you might not want to hit this up: "Pour Some Sugar on Me," "Dream Police," "Every Rose Has Its Thorn," "Photograph," "Surrender," "Unskinny Bop," "Rock Of Ages," "I Want You To Want Me," "Nothin' But A Good Time." Now what was that about doing laundry and walking the dog?

Incubus, The Duke Spirit

Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion

August 21

Few modern rock bands in the past decade have been as soulful and eclectic as Incubus. They started out as little more than a Chili Pepper-biting teen act, but moved on to more textured sounds as they grew older. Albums like Make Yourself and Morning View earned the group a dedicated and passionate following. We can't think of a band better suited for an outdoor show in The Woodlands.

Heart

Arena Theatre

August 27

The Wilson sisters, Ann and Nancy, formed Heart in 1973. They were quickly compared to Led Zeppelin, with Ann's Robert Plant-style howl bowling over fans and critics alike. A whole new generation of young girls has found out about them through the band's inclusion on the soundtrack to the monstrously popular videogame Guitar Hero.

Depeche Mode, Peter Bjorn & John

Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion

August 30

Depeche Mode closes out our long hot summer with a night sure to be full of dark pop and tortured ballads dealing with emotional waste and inner turmoil under The Woodlands' sky. The first cold front is at least a month off, kids, so no trench coats tonight.
