DJ Sun

The Flat : 9:00 p.m. every Mon.; 9:00 p.m. October 27

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

Watsky

House of Blues-- Bronze Peacock Room : 7:00 p.m. October 21

Last year, the most badass statistical analyst you've ever heard of, Matt Daniels, released something called the Hip-Hop Flow Chart, which ranked several popular rap acts by vocabulary size. I pored over the results like a rap geek and wondered how could Daniels have missed this prolific... More >>

Downtown/ Midtown Rap

Heart

Stafford Centre : 8:00 p.m. October 22

Everybody knows Heart thanks to a handful of classic-rock radio staples, but few people consider the band much beyond "Crazy on You." While Heart's chart-toppers have firmly ensconced the Seattle-formed band in rock history as one of the first female-fronted hard-rock acts, their misleading... More >>

Outside Houston Classic Rock

Jason Aldean

Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion : 6:30 p.m. October 23

The Woodlands Pavilion closes its blockbuster-country season with two pillars of the oft-derided “bro” movement now making tentative steps toward maturity. For Aldean, his Alabama-referencing bedroom jam “Burnin’ It Down” represents an opportunity to shed some of... More >>

Outside Houston Country

B.o.B

Warehouse Live : 8:00 p.m. October 23

One of the first rappers to break big in the 2010s, Atlanta’s B.o.B. has shown an uncommon flair for veering outside the hip-hop mainstream that easily dovetails with his preacher’s-son charisma. He originally made a big splash with 2010 debut B.o.B. Presents: The Adventures of... More >>

East End Hip-Hop

honeyhoney

Continental Club : 7:00 p.m. October 24

Call it the Civil Wars syndrome: Boy-girl Americana duos are fast becoming one of this decade’s most overhyped pop-music trends, but unfairly so in the case of honeyhoney. However, Suzanne Santo and Ben Jaffe’s L.A.-based band actually appeared well ahead of all this media interest,... More >>

Downtown/ Midtown Folk, Americana

Mike Doughty

Warehouse Live : 7:00 p.m. October 24

New York City-based Soul Coughing plied a peculiar brand of jazz, folk and Violent Femmes-like acoustic rock; like a lot of offbeat ’90s acts, they managed a couple of hit singles, 1996’s “Super Bon Bon” and “Circles” two years later. They then disappeared... More >>

East End Singer-Songwriter

Pujol & Screaming Females

Walter's Downtown : 8:00 p.m. October 24

Few feelings can match the exuberance of playing rock and roll in your early twenties. It’s a potent combination of arrogance, recklessness and a hint of vulnerability that, done right, taps into the grand tradition of the Stones, the Clash, the Replacements, the Strokes and the Arctic... More >>

Downtown/ Midtown Punk, Indie Rock

Jimmy Lafave

McGonigel's Mucky Duck : 7:00 p.m. October 25

One of the smoothest vocalists around, LaFave can make listeners happy singing even the saddest of ballads. LaFave, a former drummer, works both sides of the musical street, mixing up tender classics like Jimmy Webb's "The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress" with jump-jivin' Chuck Berry butt-shakers and... More >>

Lower Shepherd-Kirby Singer-Songwriter

Alan Haynes

The Big Easy Social and Pleasure Club : 9:00 p.m. October 25

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

Shake Russell

Anderson Fair Retail Restaurant : 9:00 p.m. October 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 >>

Montrose Singer-Songwriter

The Bellamy Brothers

Dosey Doe : 7:30 p.m. October 26

Chances are, subconsciously, you know the entire Bellamy Brothers catalog by heart. That's the magic, for better or worse, of siblings David and Homer's tuneful, mellow country-rock — if such a thing were possible, they would be the Journey of the twanging set. At times the going does get... More >>

Outside Houston Country

Paul Ramirez Band

Continental Club : 9:00 p.m. every Wed.; 9:00 p.m. October 29

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

Something Wicked

part of Halloween
Sam Houston Race Park : 2:00 p.m. October 25; 2:00 p.m. October 26

Quite possibly one of the biggest dance music festivals this city holds, Something Wicked is a bass-lovers dream, but with a wicked Halloween twist. This devilish festival at Sam Houston Racepark is all about dropping the bass and costumery, from the themed stage production to the thundering... More >>

Jersey Village Festival, Electronica

John Egan

The Big Easy Social and Pleasure Club : 8:00 p.m. every Mon.; 8:00 p.m. October 20

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.; 9:30 p.m. October 28

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 >>

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 >>

Heights Jazz

House of Blues Gospel Brunch

Speak Easy Jazz Night featuring Free Radicals

AvantGarden : 10:00 p.m. every Mon.

Free Radicals is both Nick Cooper's revolving-door ensemble that at any given moment could be playing free jazz or Latin funk, and also Cooper's ongoing testimonial to how much he digs being a member of the Houston music community. He has so much experience at this point that he has very much... 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

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.
