Zola Jesus

Fitzgerald's : 7:00 p.m. February 2

Zola Jesus sounds exactly like what she is: a classically trained child prodigy whose high-school favorites included Throbbing Gristle, Swans and Diamanda Galas; the arty drama kid who dreams of playing Coachella someday. If that sounds a little pretentious, it is, but so was Tori Amos, and... More >>

Numbers : 9:00 p.m. every Fri.; 9:00 p.m. January 30

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 >>

Rakim & EPMD

Arena Theatre : 8:00 p.m. January 31

After Bun B and Too $hort got 2015 started off right, the Arena keeps its classic-rap game super-tight with this pairing of Long Island lyrical heavyweights. Both acts rank among the essential artists of hip-hop’s “Golden Age” of the late ’80s and early ’90s, and... More >>

Outer Loop - SW Rap

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

Yonatan Gat

Walter's Downtown : 8:00 p.m. January 29

A few years back, one of the bands to see if you wanted a totally unhinged live performance was Monotonix, an extremely hairy group out of Israel whose concerts were known to end up with flaming guitars, knocked-over drums and all sorts of other mayhem. Volatile as they were, it’s no... More >>

Paul Ramirez Band

Continental Club : 9:00 p.m. every Wed.; 9:00 p.m. January 28

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.

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

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.

John Egan

The Big Easy Social and Pleasure Club : 8:00 p.m. every Mon.; 8:00 p.m. January 26

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 >>

Kirby-West U Blues

Alan Haynes

The Big Easy Social and Pleasure Club : 9:00 p.m. January 31

Being a fairly well-known blues guitarist in Austin, Texas, is like being a retired old coot in Coral Springs, Florida. Who in town isn’t? But Alan Haynes stands out thanks to a tireless dedication to the blues and a résumé that’d make even the most well-established... More >>

Railroad Earth

House of Blues : 7:00 p.m. January 30

The Grand 1894 Opera House : 3:00 p.m. January 25

Shake Russell

McGonigel's Mucky Duck : 6:00 p.m. January 25

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 >>

Kongos

Warehouse Live : 7:00 p.m. January 31
