Shake Russell

McGonigel's Mucky Duck : 6:00 p.m. January 4; 6:00 p.m. January 11; 6:00 p.m. January 18; 6:00 p.m. January 25

There was a time when Shake Russell could’ve run for mayor in Houston and probably finished with enough votes to shame both political parties. He might even have pulled a majority in Montrose and the Heights. For almost 30 years, Russell was a duo with Dana Cooper, and the pair... More >>

Lower Shepherd-Kirby Singer-Songwriter

Spoon

House of Blues : 7:00 p.m. December 30

The name of the game with Spoon is “seamless.” Britt Daniel and Jim Eno’s Austin-based group has — so incrementally it’s almost imperceptible — become one of the most successful indie bands of the past 20 years. But Daniel needed a break following... More >>

Downtown/ Midtown Indie Rock, Rock

Walters Third Anniversary

Walter's Downtown : 8:00 p.m. December 26

Walters Downtown has had an eventful year, losing its founder, Pam Robinson, in October and transitioning into the hands of her son Zack Palmer, so the venue’s third-anniversary party looks to the future while anchoring itself to one of Houston’s most beloved bands. The Wild... More >>

Downtown/ Midtown Indie Pop

Big Ass Blues Jam

The Hideaway On Dunvale : 9:30 p.m. every Tue.

We got to partake in the pleasure that is the Hideaway on Dunvale for steak night one Tuesday, and it included the magical blues stylings of Rick Lee & The Night Owls. Lee and his band do ZZ Top, Bobby "Blue" Bland and B.B. King covers. The Hideaway is a ways out of the Inner Loop, but don't... More >>

Outer Loop - SW Blues

Dosey Doe : 8:30 p.m. January 8

Outside Houston Americana, Country

Clutch

House of Blues : 7:00 p.m. January 7

Clutch has put in two decades in the hard-rock trenches without ever selling a whole lot of records or making a whole lot of headlines, but in the process has developed the kind of fluid chemistry that makes them one of the most satisfying live experiences going, hands down. Boasting the kind... More >>

Downtown/ Midtown Rock

Gary P. Nunn

Firehouse Saloon : 9:00 p.m. January 2

Best known as the voice behind “London Homesick Blues” (“I wanna go home with the Armadillo…”), the tune heard for years and years at the opening of every Austin City Limits episode, Gary P. Nunn is the perfect performer to get your honky-tonkin’ 2015 off on... More >>

Galleria Country

Shakey Graves

Fitzgerald's : 7:00 p.m. December 29

Shakey Graves, the musical alter ego of Austin’s Alejandro Rose-Garcia, is fast becoming the name to drop among the scruffy aspiring singer/songwriter set. As heard on the 2011 debut Roll the Bones, Graves’s DIY patchwork of folk and blues — accentuated by a kick-drum... More >>

Heights Singer-Songwriter

DJ Wes Wallace

Numbers : 9:00 p.m. every Fri.; 9:00 p.m. December 26

There aren’t many places inside the Houston city limits where you can see a guy dressed up like a goth George Washington nursing a dirt cheap Long Island Iced Tea and shadow-dancing, but such is the reality at “Classic Numbers” every Friday at well, Numbers off Westheimer. The... More >>

Montrose Pop, Electro, Dance

A Fistful Of Soul

Big Top Lounge : 10:00 p.m. third Fri. of every month

Since the turn of the decade, the collective of DJs who call themselves A Fistful of Soul have become one of the Houston music scene’s true feel-good success stories. What began as a small group of collectors who enjoyed seeking out rare soul/R&B 45s , which they played for their friends... More >>

Downtown/ Midtown DJ

John Egan

The Big Easy Social and Pleasure Club : 8:00 p.m. every Mon.

Solo bluesman John Egan sings in a tone that suggests someone is constantly walking over his grave, and his lyrics are loaded with bad mojo like nature gone haywire and apocalyptic visions. All he needs live is his National Resonator, one of those shiny silver guitars that sting and snarl. Egan... More >>

Kirby-West U Blues

Josh Abbott Band

House of Blues : 8:00 p.m. December 31

By now, most of us can agree that 2015 can’t get here soon enough. Everyone celebrates New Year’s Eve differently, but these shows look more promising than most: In the absence of a nationally known act, big-timers (regionally speaking) Blue October and Josh Abbott Band post up at... More >>

Downtown/ Midtown Country

Glover Gill

Continental Club : 8:00 p.m. every Mon.

Every Glover Gill song tells a story. Like a good book or movie, it grabs you at the beginning, sinks its hooks into you near the middle and gives you at least one good surprise before coming to an end. And without the vocals or lyrics, either. Quite the scholarly musician, Glover Gill studied... More >>

Downtown/ Midtown Tango, Piano

Deep Diver

Super Happy Fun Land : 8:00 p.m. February 10

Spoken word artists, poets and comedians will be... More >>

East End Other

Nick Greer

The Corkscrew : 6:00 p.m. every Thu.

One of the brightest stars in the current explosion of Houston music, Nick Greer is a bow-tied redheaded wunderkind, able to flitter between piano pop and hip-hop — he helped out on the Niceguys' James Kelley — with the flick of a wrist and the slightest touch. Starting at a... More >>

Heights Soul, Funk, Blues

Bill Kirchen

UniTunes Coffeehouse : 7:00 p.m. January 3

A virtuoso of the Fender Telecaster, Bill Kirchen is not only a stellar songwriter, player, and performer whose oeuvre extends from Bakerfield truckers' twang to rockabilly, he is widely acknowledge as one of the top practitioners of his craft and has spent part of his career teaching guitar....

Galleria Singer-Songwriter, Rockabilly

Too Short & Bun B

Arena Theatre : 8:00 p.m. January 3

The first great rap show of the new year didn’t take long to arrive. The perfect pairing of ultra-frosty West Coast steez with wood-grained Gulf Coast trill, these two playas hail from the school they tore down to build the old school. Between the two of them, Short Dog and Professor Bun... More >>

Outer Loop - SW Rap

Blue October

Bayou Music Center : 8:00 p.m. December 31

By now, most of us can agree that 2015 can’t get here soon enough. Everyone celebrates New Year’s Eve differently, but these shows look more promising than most: In the absence of a nationally known act, big-timers (regionally speaking) Blue October and Josh Abbott Band post up at... More >>

Downtown/ Midtown Alternative

DJ Sun

The Flat : 9:00 p.m. every Mon.

DJ Sun isn't hard to find. He has a residency most evenings out of the week, either solo or with the crew from his long-running Saturday-night KPFT show Soular Grooves. As affable as he is industrious, in 20 years Sun has become a soft-spoken cornerstone of the Houston music community, often... More >>

Montrose DJ, Ambient

The Corkscrew : 9:00 p.m. every Fri.; 9:00 p.m. December 26

One of the brightest stars in the current explosion of Houston music, Nick Greer is a bow-tied redheaded wunderkind, able to flitter between piano pop and hip-hop — he helped out on the Niceguys' James Kelley — with the flick of a wrist and the slightest touch. Starting at a... More >>

Heights Soul, Funk, Blues

Alan Haynes

The Big Easy Social and Pleasure Club : 9:00 p.m. December 27

Being a fairly well-known blues guitarist in Austin, Texas, is like being a retired old coot in Coral Springs, Florida. Who in town isn’t? But Alan Haynes stands out thanks to a tireless dedication to the blues and a résumé that’d make even the most well-established... More >>

Kirby-West U Blues

Libby Koch

McGonigel's Mucky Duck : 7:30 p.m. January 6

Last spring, homegrown singer-songwriter Libby Koch released Tennessee Colony, which turned out to be one of the most rewarding albums put out by a local artist in 2014. Set long ago in the tiny East Texas settlement near Palestine, where Koch’s clan put down roots in the 1830s and... More >>
