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


Ayva Center : 8:00 p.m. May 6

Still relatively unknown in the U.S., the Nigerian musician known as WizKid started his career at age 11 and is the first African star to reach 1 million Twitter followers. Now 24, he signed with Nigerian mogul Banky W.’s Empire Mates Entertainment at age 19, and by 2013 was named No. 5... More >>

Outer Loop - SW R&B

Wasi Townsend

Cafe Luxor Hookah Bar & Grill : 10:00 p.m. every Sat.; 10:00 p.m. April 25

Singer-Songwriter Wasi Townsend is on a mission to spread his message of Oneness through his acoustic soul music. As Neil Young has his Crazy Horse, Townsend has his Madlove when he wants to rock out, and together they were the first rock band to play the PanAfrican Festival in Third Ward in... More >>

Heights Singer-Songwriter

Bob Dylan

Bayou Music Center : 7:00 p.m. May 5

It says something that Bob Dylan is playing a venue that can hold fewer than 3,000 people; namely, that his time as a pop star is long in the past while his legend continues to grow and his work ethic never tires. Most fans who have stuck with him this long know the rules of Dylan in concert:... More >>

Downtown/ Midtown Singer-Songwriter, Rock, Folk

Walk the Moon

House of Blues : 7:30 p.m. April 30

Cincinnati’s Walk the Moon have so much ’80s in them that if Netflix ever wants to do an original series styled after the John Hughes oeuvre, this is the band to do the sound track. Alongside other contemporary retro-revivalists like Neon Trees, the Killers and Bad Suns, the quartet... More >>

Downtown/ Midtown Indie Rock

Matt & Kim

House of Blues : 7:00 p.m. April 25

Now supporting fifth album New Glow, Matt & Kim are one of the most beloved couples in indie-rock for a number of reasons: their boundless energy onstage; songs brimming with positivity and fun, driven by Kim’s almost childlike energy on drums; a hyper-approachable attitude toward their... More >>

Downtown/ Midtown Indie Pop, Dance

Big Ass Blues Jam

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

Outer Loop - SW Blues

Sir Elton John

Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion : 6:30 p.m. May 1

Sir Elton John’s list of accomplishments is as big as his wardrobe, so we’ll spare you the introductions. The 68-year-old superstar is coming off another run of “Million Dollar Piano” shows at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas (where he will return in October)... More >>

Outside Houston Pop

Lil’ Ed & the Blues Imperials

Dosey Doe Music Cafe : 8:00 p.m. May 1

“Lil’ Ed” Williams comes by his status as one of Chicago’s top latter-day bluesmen honestly; he was born there, and learned his trade at clubs like Big Duke’s Blue Flame on the West Side, where some of the headliners included Howlin’ Wolf and Junior Wells.... More >>

Conroe Rock, Blues

Glover Gill

Continental Club : 8:00 p.m. every Mon.; 8:00 p.m. April 27

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

Willow Waterhole Music Fest 2015

Willow Waterhole Conservation Reserve : 11:00 a.m. April 25

Located right behind Westbury High School, the Willow Waterhole Conservation Reserve is one of the unsung gems of the Harris County park system — or a handful of nature-loving citizens hopes it will be soon, anyway. Presently, the 280 acres of mostly undeveloped land just outside Loop 610... More >>

Outer Loop - SW Festival

Tony Bennett & Lady Gaga

Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion : 8:00 p.m. April 24

It’s tempting to write off Tony Bennett & Lady Gaga’s Cheek to Cheek as a cynical ploy by Universal to trot out a few Great American Songbook warhorses one more time in the hopes many of her young Little Monsters had never heard them before (which is probably true), or at least a... More >>

Outside Houston Pop

Shake Russell

McGonigel's Mucky Duck : 7:00 p.m. May 2

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

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

Madness On Main Street 2015

Continental Club : 5:00 p.m. May 2

A sure sign that FPSF is not far away, Madness on Main Street returns to the Mid-Main ecosystem to help local music fans brush up on their decision-making and time-management festival skills. Frankly, we prefer this one because it’s largely indoors and at FPSF even the highest-profile... More >>

Downtown/ Midtown Festival

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

Beetle (Beatles Tribute)

Continental Club : 7:00 p.m. every Thu.

Every Thursday, Houstonians of all drinking ages twist and shout through Beetle's three-hour magical mystery happy hour set. Covering every single stop along the Fab Four's pop odyssey, the weekly event has a devoted following, which means the Continental Club's dance floor can get crowded. Get... More >>

Downtown/ Midtown Tribute

The Who

Toyota Center : 7:30 p.m. April 29

Only a handful of other bands can touch The Who in terms of catalog or influence, and their overarching message — see me, feel me — has long since come to embody rock and roll itself. Born of London’s style-obsessed mod culture in the mid-1960s, the early Who had the audacity... More >>

Downtown/ Midtown Classic Rock

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 >>

Montrose Jazz

Nick Greer & The G's

The Corkscrew : 9:00 p.m. every Fri.; 9:00 p.m. April 24

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.; 9:00 p.m. April 24

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

Be.Witched Wednesdays

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

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

Sparetime Murray & the Honeymakers Blues Jam

Shakespeare Pub : 9:00 p.m. every Sun.; 9:00 p.m. April 26

“Sundays ain't just for church anymore!,” proclaims Memorial-area blues club, the Shakespeare Pub, as their tag line for this weekly blues jam hosted by Sparetime Murray & the Honeymakers. It's a nice way to end your weekend or to get it started depending on your point of view.... More >>
