Rudyard’s 36th Anniversary Show Day 1

Rudyard's : 9:00 p.m. August 22

In August 1978, moviegoers laughed at National Lampoon’s Animal House but the Grease soundtrack ruled the pop charts. The Stones had a No. 1 single with “Miss You,” Devo debuted with Q: Are We Not Men? A: We Are Devo! and a cozy bar soon to be known as “Montrose’s... More >>

Montrose Indie Rock

Ricky Skaggs & Kentucky Thunder

Dosey Doe : 7:30 p.m. August 24

Ricky Skaggs is so accomplished that his decade as one of country music’s biggest hit-makers of the ‘80s (“Highway 40 Blues,” “Don’t Cheat In Your Hometown”) counts as a career detour. Now 60, the native of Cordell, Ky., inherited his credentials as... More >>

Paul Ramirez Band

Continental Club : 9:00 p.m. every Wed.; 9:00 p.m. August 27

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 two years now. It paid off with Sex With a Dragon, his debut CD that throws in a little Santana and New Orleans R&B into... More >>

Downtown/ Midtown Variety, Rock, Blues

One Direction

NRG Stadium : 7:00 p.m. August 22

We hope the people in charge of Reliant Stadium have checked its structural integrity, because One Direction’s upcoming show there is going to be earth-shakingly loud. It’s true: the biggest boy band on the planet is now touring stadiums, bringing their catchy songs and perfect(ly... More >>

Inner Loop - SW Pop

Marshall Crenshaw

Continental Club : 9:00 p.m. August 22

The pride of Festus, Mo., the Bottle Rockets would be the best band you’ve never heard of except, if you’ve ever subscribed to either No Depression magazine or the Bloodshot Records mailing list, you’ve absolutely heard of them and know exactly why they’re so damn good.... More >>

Downtown/ Midtown Rock, Pop

Garfunkel & Oates

House of Blues : 7:00 p.m. August 23

The plight of the second banana is something that has gone almost completely undocumented in pop-music history. Since everybody is looking out for No. 1, why would it be? Now Riki Lindhome and Kate Micucci are speaking up for betas everywhere as Garfunkel & Oates, a hilarious folk-pop duo whose... More >>

Downtown/ Midtown Comedy, Folk, Pop

Shooter Jennings

Redneck Country Club : 8:00 p.m. August 23

Every inch his father Waylon’s son, Shooter Jennings has spent the past decade or so as the proudest renegade in country music, even if his actual music hasn’t always been all that country. But after a sketchy period that found him venturing into left-field psychedelic rock... More >>

Rudyard's : 9:00 p.m. August 23

In August 1978, moviegoers laughed at National Lampoon’s Animal House but the Grease soundtrack ruled the pop charts. The Stones had a No. 1 single with “Miss You,” Devo debuted with Q: Are We Not Men? A: We Are Devo! and a cozy bar soon to be known as “Montrose’s... More >>

Montrose Rock


Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion : 7:30 p.m. August 25

Aerosmith’s reputation has been tarnished by some bad records and worse decision-making over the years, but even that can’t obscure this fundamental truth: In their prime, Steven Tyler and Joe Perry’s Boston bad boys not only lived up to the hype as America’s Rolling... More >>

Outside Houston Rock


McGonigel's Mucky Duck : 7:30 p.m. August 26

It goes without saying that Buxton is one of Houston's best acts, and has been since we first saw the group play at Avant Garden (then Helios) an embarrassing number of years ago. Though they're generally quiet and laid-back, there's no denying the fire they deliver from the depths of their... More >>

DJ Sun

The Flat : 9:00 p.m. every Mon.

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.

Montrose Ambient

Little Joe Washington

Continental Club : 7:30 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

Nick Greer & The G's

The Corkscrew : 9:00 p.m. every Fri.

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

Downtown/ Midtown Tribute

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

DJ Wes Wallace

Numbers : 9:00 p.m. every Fri.

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

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 >>

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

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

Big Ass Blues Jam

The Hideaway On Dunvale : 9:30 p.m. every Tue.

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

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 >>
