DJ Sun

The Flat : 9:00 p.m. every Mon.; 9:00 p.m. December 8

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

The 1975

Bayou Music Center : 7:00 p.m. November 26

The 1975 sounds exactly like a band that cut their teeth on as many Brian Eno as Michael Jackson and Rolling Stones songs. Unlikely as it sounds, that’s exactly how the Manchester four-piece got their start more than a decade ago and reached fruition on last year’s eponymous debut... More >>

Downtown/ Midtown Indie Rock

Jackson Taylor & the Sinners

Firehouse Saloon : 9:00 p.m. November 26

Jackson Taylor & the Sinners’ songs are full of drinkin’, cussin’, fightin’, smokin’ and associating with ladies of ill repute — you know, the good stuff. The Wichita, Kansas, group wears their allegiance to outlaw heroes like Waylon, Shaver and Social... More >>

Galleria Singer-Songwriter

Thanksgiving for the Disenfranchised

Mango's : 8:00 p.m. November 27

Montrose Holiday, DJ

Jimmy Lafave

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

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

Dwight Yoakam

Arena Theatre : 9:00 p.m. November 28

Dwight Yoakam has spent a good bit of this fall as the main support act on Eric Church’s “The Outsiders” U.S. tour, which continues into January. At least for now, the tour is bypassing Houston (what else is new), but it’s good to see Dwight in front of arena-size crowds... More >>

Outer Loop - SW Country

Reverend Horton Heat

Scout Bar : 7:00 p.m. November 29

Sub Pop Records’ two main Southwestern standard-bearers throughout the ’90s, the Supersuckers and Reverend Horton Heat blazed a trail of hellfire and brimstone through the grunge years that audiences in these parts lapped up like whiskey in a drought. Between Supersuckers shaman... More >>

Clear Lake Rockabilly, Rock

James McMurtry

McGonigel's Mucky Duck : 9:30 p.m. November 29

From the my-how-time-flies category: James McMurtry, who plays a solo show at McGonigel's Mucky Duck Saturday, marks a quarter-century as a professional musician this year. He began his career in the late '80s by gaining recognition at songwriting events associated with the Kerrville Folk... More >>

Lower Shepherd-Kirby Americana

Night Ranger

Concert Pub (North) : 7:30 p.m. November 30

Night Ranger may be forever linked with the “bathrobe” scene in Boogie Nights, but there’s a lot more to recommend them than just “Sister Christian.” For a time the San Francisco rockers gave Journey a run for their money as the Bay Area’s biggest-selling... More >>

Jersey Village Rock


Warehouse Live : 7:00 p.m. December 2

The most natural heir to Curtis Mayfield’s legacy of socially conscious and intrinsically soulful Chicago music (sorry, Kanye), Common doubles down on this year’s Nobody’s Smiling, tackling his hometown’s record-setting epidemic of gun violence head-on. That’s not... More >>

East End Hip-Hop

Melissa Etheridge

Bayou Music Center : 8:00 p.m. December 2

Even before Melissa Etheridge was one of the first mainstream musicians to come out as a lesbian, she was one of the few female rockers to register at all in the ’80s. Her 1988 hit single “Bring Me Some Water” eventually paved the way for the likes of Sheryl Crow, Shawn Colvin... More >>

Downtown/ Midtown Singer-Songwriter, Rock

Ryan Adams

Bayou Music Center : 7:00 p.m. December 3

Ryan Adams is a rock and roll sponge, possibly a Britpop savant, Gram Parsons acolyte or Grateful Dead noodler depending on what mood he’s in. However, he will have turned 40 by this visit to Houston, and no longer deserves to be defined by such aesthetic hair-splitting. His latest album... More >>

Downtown/ Midtown Singer-Songwriter

Brown Sabbath

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

Austin funk/Afrobeat group Brownout are fun in their own right, but their Brown Sabbath show is even better. Featuring members of Grupo Fantasma, the horn- and percussion-laden group does all Black Sabbath covers, all night long. How could that go wrong? After supporting artists as diverse as... More >>

Downtown/ Midtown Hardcore, Festival


Toyota Center : 6:30 p.m. December 5

A master showman and entertainer, Usher is so far at the top of pop music’s pecking order his only real peers are Justin Timberlake and Bruno Mars. Now 36, the linchpin of Atlanta’s urban-music diaspora has been making records for a full 20 years, and has been a star since... More >>

Downtown/ Midtown R&B

Atomic Opera

Fitzgerald's : 8:00 p.m. December 5

Atomic Opera was an ambitious, technically precise metal band whose mystical sound was closely aligned with King’s X and the Galactic Cowboys, both stylistically and because all three had connections to producer Sam Taylor and the long-gone Rampart Studio in Katy. After becoming one of... More >>

Heights Hard Rock

Jessica Hernandez & the Deltas

Warehouse Live : 8:00 p.m. December 5

Jessica Hernandez’s Facebook bio claims the Detroit singer plies both “dark soul” and “gothic pop,” equally apt terms for an artist whose music juggles effervescence and melancholy without much of a lag. Her brand-new album, Secret Evil (Instant Records), announces... More >>

Jeff Black

UniTunes Coffeehouse : 7:00 p.m. December 6

We were lunching at the L&J in old El Paso, a family cafe that serves the best hot sauce and steak tacos this side of the border and which is situated by the old Concordia graveyard where John Wesley Hardin is buried in the sand, and on the wall was a bunch of pictures, and there above the...

Galleria Singer-Songwriter

John Fullbright

McGonigel's Mucky Duck : 9:30 p.m. December 6

For anyone who has seen young Oklahoman John Fullbright sing his smarty-pants common-man songs and play guitar, accordion, harmonica, mandolin and about anything else he puts his hands or lips on, it won't come as too big a surprise that the favorite son of Okemah (Woody Guthrie's hometown)...

Lower Shepherd-Kirby Singer-Songwriter

Wade Bowen

Dosey Doe : 7:30 p.m. December 7

Singer, songwriter, golf-tournament namesake, Waco native Wade Bowen has been burnin' up the blacktop since 2002's Try Not to Listen and turned a few heads outside the Lone Star State with last year's clever bro-country retort "Songs About Trucks." This past October he released his seventh... More >>

Outside Houston Acoustic

Ms. Lauryn Hill

House of Blues : 8:00 p.m. December 9

One of the biggest question marks coming into this past Free Press Summer Fest, Ms. Lauryn Hill emerged instead as one of the weekend’s biggest surprises with a Sunday-afternoon set many fans said was one of the weekend’s best. The ex-Fugee and multiple Grammy winner’s 1998... More >>

RL Grime

Warehouse Live : 8:00 p.m. December 10

You can’t really escape trap music these days. Part hip-hop, part dance music, it’s one of those genres that teens and young adults flock to because it’s familiar and it’s easy to dance to, even if you have no clue how to dance. In the trap world, RL Grime is one of the... More >>

House of Blues : 8:00 p.m. November 28; 8:00 p.m. November 29

About a year ago, the Randy Rogers Band and a tribe of their soon-to-be-hoarse Hill Country fans gathered at the legendary John T. Floore’s Country Store outside San Antonio for two nights of sawing fiddle, steamrolling drums and overdrive guitars. The weekend was captured on Homemade... More >>

Downtown/ Midtown Country

John Egan

The Big Easy Social and Pleasure Club : 8:00 p.m. every Mon.; 8:00 p.m. December 1

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 >>
