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

World’s Championship Bar-B-Que Contest

NRG Park : 2:00 p.m. February 27

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

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

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

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

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

Ledisi

Bayou Music Center : 8:00 p.m. March 4

After last year’s The Truth cracked Billboard’s R&B Albums Top 10 and got her a Grammy nomination for “Like This,” Ledisi can now be seen on the big screen as gospel great Mahalia Jackson in Ava DuVernay’s Oscar-nominated Selma. That by itself should tell you what... More >>

Downtown/ Midtown R&B, Jazz

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

Future

Arena Theatre : 8:00 p.m. April 12

Atlanta’s Future is hardly the first rapper of the Auto-Tune age to liken himself to Al Pacino’s Scarface character, but his 2011 breakout single, “Tony Montana,” made him one of the most memorable. Born into the highest circles of ATL rap — his cousin is Rico Wade... More >>

Outer Loop - SW Rap

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

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

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

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

Wasi Townsend

Cafe Luxor Hookah Bar & Grill : 10:00 p.m. every Sat.; 10:00 p.m. March 7

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

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

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

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

DJ Wes Wallace

Numbers : 9:00 p.m. every Fri.; 9:00 p.m. February 27

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

Nick Greer & The G's

The Corkscrew : 9:00 p.m. every Fri.; 9:00 p.m. February 27

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 - Alan Jackson

NRG Stadium : 3:45 p.m. March 7

With a back catalog of hits, including the 34 No. 1s collected on 2011's aptly titled 34 Number Ones, Alan Jackson's sets manage to pull in country fans of every age and stripe. He can make you dance ("Don't Rock the Jukebox"), ponder the finer things in life ("Chattahoochee") and appreciate... More >>

Inner Loop - SW Country

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

Lisa Morales

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

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

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 >>
