It’s a party sure to raise the dead — the Houston Press Noche de los Muertos Celebration. Houston-based band La Sien (Houston Press Music Award Best Latin Act winner in 2013), provides its signature blend of Spanish rock, jazz, blues, funk and pop music for the celebration. Just... More >>

Downtown/ Midtown Latin Pop

Arctic Monkeys

Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion : 7:00 p.m. October 30

Besides spearheading this latest Britpop revival (you’re welcome, Bastille), Arctic Monkeys have mellowed a little of the manic energy but otherwise haven’t shed a strand of DNA from the brash UK teens who first appeared on 2006’s Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What... More >>

Outside Houston Indie Rock

Julian Casablancas & the Voidz

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

The Strokes seem content to collect big-festival paychecks and little else these days, leaving Julian Casablancas et al. seeking their musical thrills elsewhere. And while there’s still plenty of his parent band’s sleek garage-rock in Casablancas’s latest offshoot, the Voidz,... More >>

Downtown/ Midtown Indie Rock

Disco Expressions

Continental Club : 9:00 p.m. October 31

Halloween falls on a Friday this year, and I have the perfect costume: I’m going as Sia, so look for me wearing a platinum-blond wig and standing in a corner with my back to everyone at the Continental Club, where Disco Expressions and the Allen Oldies Band are performing. They’ll... More >>

Downtown/ Midtown Disco

Midnight River Choir

Firehouse Saloon : 9:00 p.m. October 31

As origin stories go, Midnight River Choir have a pretty good one. According to their Facebook page, four strangers floated a river near their New Braunfels hometown and ended up a band. (And hey, why not?) Two albums later, the Choir is winning over crowds on the dance-hall circuit with a... More >>

Galleria Country

Bleachers

Fitzgerald's : 7:00 p.m. November 1

When your platinum-selling, Grammy-winning band is faced with some much-deserved down time, where else would you want to go but…the ’80s? That’s how Jack Antonoff, guitarist for millennial NYC power-pop sensations fun., reinvented himself as Bleachers once wrapping the tour... More >>

Heights Indie Rock

The English Beat

Scout Bar : 7:00 p.m. November 1

2-tone deserved better. Otherwise known as the second wave of ska — the first being the ­reggae-tinged '60s Jamaican scene that produced the Wailers, the third the rock-tinged form that ruled the mid-'90s — this late-'70s strain originated from an English label whose roster... More >>

Clear Lake Ska

Matt the Electrician

Anderson Fair Retail Restaurant : 9:00 p.m. November 1

Austin's Matt the Electrician (Matthew Sower to his family and friends) is one of a handful of brainy, somewhat quiet Central Texas singer-songwriters who write with considerable plainfolks wit, down-to-earth blue-collar common sense and smart-folks ideas. What emerges are songs like "Change... More >>

Montrose Singer-Songwriter

The Psychedelic Furs

House of Blues : 7:00 p.m. November 2

The Psychedelic Furs are a study in retroactive popularity. They toiled in the punk and new wave underground for years before finding success as the inspiration for a John Hughes movie in 1986. They re-recorded that song ("Pretty in Pink") for the soundtrack, and after being an afterthought for... More >>

Downtown/ Midtown Rock, Post-Punk, New Wave

Rachael Yamagata

Fitzgerald's : 7:00 p.m. November 3

Rachael Yamagata’s thoughtful, well-bred take on adult pop clearly marks her as one of Carole King’s spiritual godchildren. Since her debut LP, Happenstance, appeared a decade ago, the 37-year-old Arlington, Virginia, native has landed her songs on scores of prime-time TV shows and... More >>

Heights Singer-Songwriter

The Weeks

Warehouse Live : 7:00 p.m. November 4

Just as Kings of Leon have seemingly lost their grip on younger fans’ imaginations, here come the Weeks to ensure that modern rock doesn’t lose its Southern accent. Even younger and rangier than the Followills circa Youth and Young Manhood, the Nashville-via-Mississippi quintet are... More >>

East End Indie Rock

King Diamond

House of Blues : 7:00 p.m. November 5

Mercyful Fate’s former front man has inspired a wave of metalheads from Metallica to Ghost BC. His aesthetic, lyricism and music have informed more artists than one could count. But many would have assumed that after a near-fatal heart attack and a serious back injury, King Diamond was... More >>

Downtown/ Midtown Metal

Single Mothers

Walter's Downtown : 8:00 p.m. November 5

Vote first, please, but if you’re looking to release some Election-Day frustration — no matter your side of the political aisle — head over to Walters for a stiff dose of Single Mothers’ eardrum-assaulting nihilism. Carrying on the sneering tradition of Northern... More >>

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

Paul Ramirez Band

Continental Club : 9:00 p.m. every Wed.

Versatile Houston blues-rockers the Paul Ramirez Band's sets are mellow enough for a late-night lounge vibe, only pocked with heavier, Cream-like moments of pure jam and sometimes a cover of Pink Floyd's "Another Brick In the Wall, Part 2" that heads straight to the planetarium. Now working on... More >>

Downtown/ Midtown Variety, Rock, Blues

Nick Greer & The G's

The Corkscrew : 9:00 p.m. every Fri.

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

DJ Wes Wallace

Numbers : 9:00 p.m. every Fri.

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

Jazz Jam

Dan Electro's Guitar Bar : 7:00 p.m. every Sun.

There are two primary schools of thought on how to play the blues on guitar: One is to spit up all the notes and hope some of them stick, à la Johnny Winter and Stevie Ray, not to mention the Jonny Lang/Kenny Wayne Shepherd hordes that have seemingly arisen, phoenixlike, from the ashes... More >>

Downtown/ Midtown Tribute

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

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

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 >>
