  • 1859 St. Joseph

    1859 St. Joseph's Church

    2202 Ave. K Galveston, TX 77550
    806-236-0715 Under the direction of Bishop John Odin, the first Catholic Bishop of Texas, St. Joseph's Church was built in 1859 by German immigrants to feel the need for the growing German-Speaking Catholic population of Galveston at that time. The first German Catholic Church in Texas and the oldest wooden church building in Galveston, visitors appreciate the church's simple rectangular Gothic-revival structure, square bell tower with trefoil window, and the original, elaborate hand-carved altars and altar statues inside. Plaster Stations of the Cross with German inscriptions dating back to the early 1900s line the walls, and other original furnishings include the cedar pews, the Baptismal font, and the confessional booth. The local Catholic diocese still owns the church, but it was desanctified and closed in 1968 due to its then-dwindling congregation. Shortly thereafter, the Galveston Historical Foundation came in and leased the church, recovering and reinstalling most of the original furnishings the church had sold at auction upon closing. Today the Foundation continues to maintain and work on restoring the church, opening it up to the public for several events throughout the year. Since 2010, as a unique way for the public to experience the property, the foundation has brought in musicians to perform live on occasion, with acoustic performances sounding especially good in this structure that was designed to carry sound without the aid of electric amplification.

  • 1892 Bishop

    1892 Bishop's Palace

    1302 Broadway, Galveston Galveston, TX 77550
    806-236-0715 Currently listed among the Top 100 most significant buildings in the United States by the American Institute of Architects, this huge ornate sandstone and granite Victorian-style house was built by Galveston architect Nicholas J. Clayton between 1887 and 1892 for attorney, entrepreneur, and Civil War Veteran Colonel Walter Gresham, who relocated to Galveston from Virginia after the war with his wife Josephine, with whom he later had nine children. The Roman Catholic Diocese of Galveston bought the house in 1923 to be used as the residence of Bishop Christopher E. Byrne (hence the name), with the Sacred Heart Church situated across the street. The house was opened up to the public in 1963 when the diocese offices were moved to Houston. The Galveston Historical Foundation bought the mansion in 2013 and offers daily guided basement to attic tours and self-guided audio tours to visitors; it is also currently restoring the building at a cost of $300,000. Texas singer-songwriter David Garza filmed a music video for his song “Texas Is My Hometown” while walking through Bishop's Palace, and the Foundation has recently scheduled musician Jamie Lin Wilson of the Trishas for a rare acoustic performance at the mansion; we hope to see more musicians scheduled to play the Palace in the future.

  • The 19th Hole Grill & Bar

    The 19th Hole Grill & Bar

    202 Sawdust Spring, TX 77380
    281-363-2574 Way out on the border of the Woodlands, in what is technically still Spring, lies the smoky, dimly lit 19th Hole. It's really several bars under one roof: Sports bar, neighborhood hangout, pool hall, and music venue on nights when the curtained-off back room is open. Behind the pool tables up front, any of the clustered mass of tables has a great view of the bar's many big screens; some booths have their own televisions too. Don't be surprised to hear 19th Hole's bartenders asking customers if they'd like "the usual," either. More >>

  • 2016 Mainstage

    2016 Mainstage

    2016 Main St. Houston, TX 77002
    713-443-7963 This ground-level nightclub has anchored the condominium/retail complex at 2016 Main for years, but Mainstage has undergone a major renovation since it was known as Sammy's. The interior cast in a blue light gives 2016 an air of electricity, as house music and DJ nights get people on the dance floor, and most Fridays brings party-rocking cover bands like the Spazmatics. Now open Wednesday through Saturday, Mainstage plans to add Sundays soon. A few small VIP landings offer a semblance of privacy, and the back room (available for reservations) is a cozy little lounge awash in red décor, with its own bar to boot. Parking is still a hassle in the area, but if you don't mind walking a few blocks from your car, you should be aces. More >>

  • Acadia Bar & Grill

    Acadia Bar & Grill

    3939 Cypress Creek Pkwy Houston, TX 77014
    281-893-2860 This north Houston live-music venue has been around since 1982, the last three years of which have brought back the rock after a short stint as a karaoke bar. Food is served seven days a week, with Thursday designated as steak night; a Pot Luck Barbecue goes down on the patio Sundays at noon. Jack and Coke and bottled Budweiser are the drinks of choice here, though the owner says flavored vodkas and martinis have been added for the ladies. A few craft beers are on tap as well, but music is the main draw here. Hard rock and metal acts play live Wednesdays through Saturdays and most Sundays, taking advantage of Acadia's impressive light show and sound system. If music is not your thing, stop by Thursday nights for the foosball tournaments or Mondays for the pool league. The owner says Acadia always has a laid-back atmosphere and friendly customer service, crediting this to his 16 years experience working at House of Blues. Smoking is allowed inside, due to one of those Harris County districting plans we don’t quite understand. More >>

  • Almost Austin House Concerts

    Almost Austin House Concerts

    2202 House Street Pasadena, TX 77502 Almost Austin House Concerts in Pasadena is not a traditional music venue; it is located in a residential house and hosts talented singer-songwriters in an intimate, up-close-and-personal setting. The music starts at 8 p.m. on show dates but part of the fun is to arrive early at 6 p.m. for the pot-luck dinner before the music starts and share some food with the other attendees. Parents can bring their kids with them to the shows as long as they can remain quiet during the performance; this is a listening room. Check the AAHC Facebook public group page for upcoming performances; a $20 donation is requested by all those who attend, with 100 percent of the proceeds going to the performers. More >>

  • Alvin Community College Theater

    3110 Mustang Road Alvin, TX 77511

  • Amazonia Discotheque

    Amazonia Discotheque

    11449 N. Freeway Houston, TX 77060
    281-260-9885 Amazonia sits on the corner of a north Houston strip center, where it entertains a host of Spanish-speaking clientele Thursdays through Sundays. Live music or DJs draw in the crowd most nights, but Thursday's soundtrack is the universal language of karaoke. With a lot of reggaeton, other tropical rhythms and hip-hop bouncing through the speakers, Amazonia's dance floor stays almost too crowded. Patrons can find relief at one of the two big bars in the corners, though, or settle in at the tables scattered around the walls. More >>

  • Amedeo


    22704 Loop 494 Humble, TX 77339
    281-359-4451 This has been one of the better restaurants in the Humble/Kingwood area for more than 20 years. The bar area is a comfortable place to unwind or grab a quick bite, while the expansive dining area is slightly more formal. The menu leans heavily toward Italy, but it also has many Continental influences. The grilled brie appetizer covered with a rosemary-blackberry sauce and the veal Portofino topped with shrimp and scallops are delightful. More >>

  • Anderson Fair Retail Restaurant

    Anderson Fair Retail Restaurant

    2007 Grant Houston, TX 77006
    832-767-2785 Anderson Fair's inconspicuous location on Grant Street belies its history as one of the nation's oldest and longest-running singer-songwriter venues. It's a past that's hard to forget, as the walls are plastered with hundreds of posters, flyers and photographs of folks who have graced the main room's small stage, including legends Townes Van Zandt and Lyle Lovett. (Look closely and you'll even spot a pair of gold records from Lovett himself.) The cash-only bar serves an array of beer and wine while you take in an intimate performance from some highway-trotting troubadour, and you'll feel the history seeping into your skin. More >>

  • Arena Theatre

    Arena Theatre

    7326 Southwest Fwy Houston, TX 77036
    713-988-1020 With a capacity of about 2,750, Sharpstown's Arena Theatre is the redheaded stepchild of Houston music venues. Even with all the competition it has these days, the Arena manages to keep the lights on most nights out of the month. Its calendar is constantly crowded with music across a wide variety of styles, including R&B, blues, country, rap, Latin and rock, plus comedy, boxing and MMA fighting. The seats are comfortable, the concessions are reasonable (even the cocktails), the sound is clean, the rotating stage never ceases to be a novelty and the gallery of posters for past shows in the walkway leading from the parking garage is second to none.

  • AvantGarden


    411 Westheimer Houston, TX 77006
    832-287-5577 Millions of scenes ago, AvantGarden was called the Mausoleum, and then the converted house went through a variety of structural and aesthetic changes to become the folkie playground it is today. Local singer-songwriters' acoustic jangle routinely packs the house as listeners sip Shiners, Merlot or the venue's trademark fruit-infused homemade concoctions. (Try the sangria.) Many of Houston's best-known troubadors count AvantGarden as the first venue they ever played in front of a large audience, either in the upstairs performance space or downstairs among the fireplace, mirrored walls and European-style divans. Something interesting, if not downright captivating, is happening here most nights of the week - regular tango, jazz, and open-mike nights (both music and comedy), to name just a few. More >>
