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

Be.Witched Wednesdays

Numbers : 9:00 p.m. every Wed.; 9:00 p.m. March 11

Houston's only night to hear the most sinister subgenres of alternative music all in one place, Be.Witched Wednesdays is a lot more than Siousxie & the Banshees, the Cure and Bauhaus -- not that they'd ever skimp on such cornerstones, either. DJs Damon Allen and FrankiFranki (and their guests)... More >>

Montrose Rock, Post-Punk, Gothic, Experimental, Electro, Eclectic, DJ

Cold War Kids

House of Blues : 8:00 p.m. March 5

The Cold War Kids almost set themselves up for a fall when 2006 debut Robbers & Cowards launched one of the decade’s definitive indie-rock singles in “Hang Me Up to Dry.” Rather than follow up quickly with another record that further crystallized their sound, the Long... More >>

Downtown/ Midtown Indie Rock

Sarah McLachlan

Jones Hall For the Performing Arts : 8:00 p.m. March 1

Those SPCA commercials featuring “Angel” may be on the heavy-handed side, but don’t let that tarnish your image of Sarah McLachlan, who has been one of Canada’s most visible and decorated musicians since her 1993 breakthrough, Fumbling Toward Ecstasy. Last year the muse... More >>

Downtown/ Midtown Singer-Songwriter

Mystery Loves Company CD Release

Rudyard's : 6:00 p.m. February 28

Houston’s Mystery Loves Company go a long way to pre-emptively stake out their music as unique by labeling it “chamber rock,” but the cello and clarinet that dominate most of their songs close the deal. Carlos Machado and Madeline Herdeman’s dynamic vocal interplay... More >>

Montrose Other

Free Radicals

AvantGarden : 10:00 p.m. every Mon.; 10:00 p.m. March 9

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 >>

Montrose Jazz

Robyn Ludwick

McGonigel's Mucky Duck : 7:00 p.m. February 28

You’ll have to pay two covers, but you might not see two more talented Texas singer-songwriters this month — or next, for that matter — than Friday’s double bill at the Duck. (You’ll save $$$ on parking, at the very least.) Sister of Bruce and Charlie Robison,... More >>

Lower Shepherd-Kirby Country

RodeoHouston - John Legend

NRG Stadium : 6:45 p.m. March 6

John Legend’s stock is sky-high right now. The veteran R&B singer followed the biggest hit of his career, the multi-format No. 1 “All of Me,” by winning an Oscar last month for “Glory,” his duet with Chicago rapper Common as featured in Ava Duvernay’s MLK... More >>

Inner Loop - SW Singer-Songwriter, R&B

RodeoHouston - Fall Out Boy

NRG Stadium : 3:45 p.m. March 8

Once one of the biggest names in the mid-2000s emo-pop scene, Fall Out Boy far transcended their goofy haircuts on hits like “Sugar, We’re Going Down.” All but written off after the four-year hiatus that followed 2008’s disappointing Folie à Deux, today... More >>

Inner Loop - SW Alternative

RodeoHouston - Miranda Lambert

NRG Stadium : 6:45 p.m. March 5

Miranda Lambert may be rocking a designer evening gown on the cover of her latest album, last year’s Platinum, but the key to her popularity may be the way she retains the soul of the shotgun-toting, whiskey-chugging spitfire of her 2007 breakout LP, Gunpowder & Lead. Lambert knows the... More >>

Inner Loop - SW Country

House of Blues Gospel Brunch

House of Blues : 1:00 p.m. March 22; 1:00 p.m. April 5

Praise the Lord and pass the biscuits! The award-winning Gospel Brunch at House of Blues is a one-of-a-kind live music and dining experience. Guests enjoy an all-you-can-eat Southern style buffet featuring breakfast favorites and Southern specialties. Gospel groups from around the region... More >>

Downtown/ Midtown Gospel, Family, Blues

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

Glover Gill

Continental Club : 8:00 p.m. every Mon.; 8:00 p.m. March 2

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. 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

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

Lisa Morales

McGonigel's Mucky Duck : 9:30 p.m. February 28

You’ll have to pay two covers, but you might not see two more talented Texas singer-songwriters this month — or next, for that matter — than Friday’s double bill at the Duck. (You’ll save $$$ on parking, at the very least.) Sister of Bruce and Charlie Robison,... More >>

Lower Shepherd-Kirby Singer-Songwriter

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

Big Ass Blues Jam

The Hideaway On Dunvale : 9:30 p.m. every Tue.; 9:30 p.m. March 10

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

Above & Beyond

Bayou Music Center : 7:30 p.m. March 7

If you’re a Houston trance-music fan, Above & Beyond’s return has probably been circled on your calendar since about five seconds after it was announced. Yes, Bayou Music Center may not be Madison Square Garden, where the group played last year to celebrate episode 100 of their... More >>

Downtown/ Midtown Electronica, Dance

Steve Miller Band

Bayou Music Center : 8:00 p.m. March 6

Classic-rock radio has fooled us into thinking that the Steve Miller Band has always been a goofy, rhyme-spitting good-time act that your mom got high to. If you listen to the band's earliest stuff, at least before 1973's The Joker, you'll find that Miller and company were making quirky... More >>

Downtown/ Midtown Classic Rock

World’s Championship Bar-B-Que Contest

NRG Stadium : 11:00 a.m. February 28

Never mind the Hideout during the rodeo itself, but critics who gripe that the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo embraces the likes of Fall Out Boy at the expense of the boot-scootin’ talent in its own backyard must have overlooked the World’s Championship Bar-B-Que Contest. This... More >>

Inner Loop - SW Country

RodeoHouston - Eric Church

NRG Stadium : 6:45 p.m. March 3

RodeoHouston kicks off its 2015 season with a first-time entertainer whose appearance says as much about the changing times as it does his hosts’ unending need to stay in tune with what’s hot. Once all but blacklisted by radio programmers for a hell-raising attitude that sometimes... More >>

Inner Loop - SW Country

Helmet "Betty" 20th Anniversary Show

Fitzgerald's : 8:00 p.m. March 4

Both perfectly of the moment and somewhat ahead of its time, Helmet’s Betty still sounds as if it could have been released yesterday. Flirting with both metal and hardcore but never quite crossing the line, Betty struck the perfect balance between guitar aggression, rhythmic complexity... More >>

Heights Metal

Cursive

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

When was the last time you thought about Cursive? Not the slowly dying form of writing, but the indie/emo outfit from Nebraska? Tim Kasher and company are still alive and kicking, and are spending the early part of 2015 touring in support of the recently re-released The Ugly Organ. This is good... More >>

Heights Indie Rock, Indie Pop

Juvenile & Mystikal

Arena Theatre : 8:00 p.m. March 6

Before “crunk” was a word (for white people, anyway) and Young Money was an empire, Juvenile and Mystikal helped put New Orleans rap on the map. Representing the city’s two major labels of the ’90s, Cash Money and No Limit, both men’s aggressive styles dipped... More >>
