Steve Martin & the Steep Canyon Rangers featuring Edie Brickell

Jones Hall For the Performing Arts : 7:30 p.m. July 31

Banjo has been part of Steve Martin’s stage act since his ’70s standup comedy days, so it’s especially funny to see the media treat the 68-year-old comic legend like music is some kind of hobby with him. Especially in this decade, the Waco-born Martin — 2005 winner of... More >>

Downtown/ Midtown Roots, Folk, Bluegrass

Ray Lamontagne

Jones Hall For the Performing Arts : 7:30 p.m. August 3

Ray LaMontagne has been recognized as one of the 21st century’s leading brown-eyed soul singers almost immediately since his debut, Trouble, appeared in 2004. Channeling greats like Sam Cooke, Otis Redding and Van Morrison into his world-weary croon, the New Englander has now released... More >>

Downtown/ Midtown Singer-Songwriter, Folk

DJ Sun

The Flat : 9:00 p.m. every Mon.; 9:00 p.m. August 4

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 Ambient

311

Bayou Music Center : 8:00 p.m. July 30

Here's one of those cases of a band making it purely on perseverance and positive attitude. 311 has come a long way from unsuccessful stabs at studio work in L.A., prodigal-son-like returns to the Midwest, dog-food poverty in Van Nuys, and the great exploding RV incident of '93. During its... More >>

Downtown/ Midtown Alternative

Peter Murphy

Scout Bar : 7:00 p.m. July 31

After a 2013 tour behind his back catalog that showed definite signs of goth fatigue, Peter Murphy sounds totally rejuvenated on last month’s Lion, his first album of original material in three years and best in quite some time. On tracks like “I Am My Own Name” and... More >>

Clear Lake Rock

B L A C K I E

Fitzgerald's : 8:00 p.m. July 31

Houston’s reclusive Indian Jewelry revel in both psychedelic drone and visceral throb, a recipe that has made them one of the most enigmatic and acclaimed musical units in Bayou City history. Often mingling plutonium-heavy Suicide-like electronica and prime Sonic Youth-style noise-rock,... More >>

Heights Indie Rock

Total Abuse

Mango's : 9:00 p.m. August 1

Modern hardcore a tad too cute for you? You certainly wouldn’t be alone in that sentiment, but take care that you’re ready for the alternative. From the all-too-safe environs of Austin, punk terrorists Total Abuse have been savagely battering audiences with their uniquely disturbed... More >>

Montrose Punk, Noise, Hardcore

Galactic Cowboys

Warehouse Live : 8:00 p.m. August 2

Another remnant of the early-’90s hard-rock revolution, Houston’s Galactic Cowboys were one of the most promising progressive-metal bands around until they ran straight into the grunge buzzsaw that also hobbled their neighbors and onetime Geffen labelmates King’s X. On albums... More >>

East End Metal

Lil Boosie

NRG Arena : 8:00 p.m. August 2

After five long years spent living inside the Louisiana State Penitentiary, “Ratchet” rapper Lil Boosie is looking to make up for some lost time. The Baton Rouge MC, fresh out of the joint after serving time for drug offenses, returns to Houston as one of the South’s hottest... More >>

Inner Loop - SW Rap

Tony! Toni! Toné! and K-Ci & JoJo

Arena Theatre : 8:00 p.m. August 2

Probably the two biggest male groups in early-'90s R&B (give or take a Boyz II Men or Bell Biv DeVoe or two), both Tony! Toni! Tone! and Jodeci have plenty of fans more than two decades later. Both groups could switch between steamy dance-floor jams and silky-smooth bedroom ballads with ease,... More >>

Outer Loop - SW Soul, R&B

Nick Greer & The G's

The Corkscrew : 9:00 p.m. every Fri.; 9:00 p.m. August 1

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. August 1

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. August 5

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

Paul Ramirez Band

Continental Club : 9:30 p.m. every Wed.

A weekly gig is about the best way for guitarists to hone their craft, and Houston's Paul Ramirez has done just that Wednesday nights at the Continental Club for more than a year now. It pays off in Sex With a Dragon, his debut CD that throws in a little Santana and New Orleans R&B into... More >>

Downtown/ Midtown Rock, Variety, Blues

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 >>

Kirby-West U 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 >>

Heights Jazz

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

Little Joe Washington

Continental Club : 7:00 p.m. August 8; 7:00 p.m. August 22

Out of a Third Ward blues guitar school that has now graduated to the great beyond Albert Collins, Johnny Clyde Copeland, Johnny Guitar Watson and Joe Guitar Hughes, Little Joe Washington is the last man standing. And he's hardly standing still: He's also pedaling his Schwinn from gig to gig,... More >>

Downtown/ Midtown Blues

Fistful Of Soul

Big Top Lounge : 10:00 p.m. third Fri. of every month

If you're seeking a scene, maaaaaaaaaan, you could do a hell of a lot worse than A Fistful of Soul, the monthly where some of Houston's grooviest DJs drip rare (and not-so-rare) vintage wax all over Midtown. Now steered by Joe Ross, Stewart Anderson and Alex LaRotta, Fistful dates back to the... More >>

Downtown/ Midtown DJ

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

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 >>
