DJ Sun

The Flat : 9:00 p.m. every Mon.; 9:00 p.m. November 10

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


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 >>

Downtown/ Midtown Punk

Death from Above 1979

Warehouse Live : 8:00 p.m. November 6

No two-piece act is more electric than Death From Above 1979. Composed of Sebastien Grainger and Jesse F. Keeler (a.k.a. MSTRKRFT), the Canadian dance-punks sparked the ongoing interest in fast-paced, electric, sexy duos who make noise much bigger than themselves. Be warned, though: This show... More >>

East End Punk

Modest Mouse

Bayou Music Center : 7:00 p.m. November 7

Nearly capsizing after 2007’s We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank baffled most of the latecomer fans who arrived with 2004’s unlikely Top 40 single “Float On,” idiosyncratic Washington State indie-rockers Modest Mouse have stayed on the road and out of the stores... More >>

Downtown/ Midtown Indie Rock

Meat Puppets & Cass McCombs

Fitzgerald's : 8:00 p.m. November 7

Among the handful of American post-punk bands that helped shape a generation of alternative rock, Arizona’s Meat Puppets mingled hardcore punk, desert psychedelia and honky-tonk to arrive at a most unique formula. Kirkwood brothers Curt and Cris have been through hell and back since their... More >>

Heights Singer-Songwriter, Indie Rock

Legends Of Zydeco & The Next Generation

Northwest Mall : 11:00 a.m. November 8

Here’s something hardly anyone could see coming: an all-day zydeco festival in the parking lot of Northwest Mall, with a lineup studded with Grammy winners and other Creole-music superstars. That’s what we’ve got, though: an entire afternoon and evening packed with performers... More >>

Outer Loop - NW Zydeco, Festival

Run the Jewels

Fitzgerald's : 8:00 p.m. November 8

As Run the Jewels, El-P and Killer Mike transcend regional styles, attitudes and hip-hop stereotypes to create some of the most uncompromising, noddable rap music in the marketplace today.

Heights Rap

The Derailers

Westwind Club : 10:00 p.m. November 8

As dependably satisfying a live band as can be found anywhere, the Derailers never stop smiling while they deliver hard-rockin' honky-tonk country music to audiences eager to drink and dance in equal measure. Tweaking the Telecaster-driven twang of Bakersfield greats Buck Owens and Merle... More >>

Outer Loop - NW Country

Olivia Newton-John

Stafford Centre : 8:00 p.m. November 9

Hundreds of boyhood crushes will be satisfied Sunday night when Olivia Newton-John brings her “Summer Nights” show from the Flamingo Las Vegas to Fort Bend County. The picture of rosy-cheeked, soft-rock wholesomeness on early-’70s hits like “Have You Never Been... More >>

Outside Houston Pop

Jello Biafra & the Guantanamo School Of Medicine

Continental Club : 9:00 p.m. November 9

For more than three decades, Jello Biafra has remained punk rock’s brassy-mouthed conscience willing to knock down the sacred cows of politics and rock and roll. First honing his diatribes in the Dead Kennedys, next dabbling in film and spoken word, and ultimately joining forces with the... More >>

Downtown/ Midtown Punk

Paul Ramirez Band

Continental Club : 9:00 p.m. every Wed.; 9:00 p.m. November 12

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

DJ Wes Wallace

Numbers : 9:00 p.m. every Fri.; 9:00 p.m. November 7

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. November 11

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 >>

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

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 >>

Montrose Jazz

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 >>
