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 >>

Outside Houston Country

Paul Ramirez Band

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

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

DJ Sun

The Flat : 9:00 p.m. every Mon.; 9:00 p.m. September 1

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

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 36th Anniversary Show Day 2

Rudyard's : 10:00 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 >>

Lower Shepherd-Kirby Indie Rock, Rock, Garage, Folk, Americana

Seth Walker

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

Seth Walker should be no stranger to Houston audiences from his many years as one of Austin’s hardest-gigging musicians, whose relaxed but precise take on white-man’s blues has built an impressive following in this part of the world. (The similarities between him and John Mayer are... More >>

Lower Shepherd-Kirby Roots

Better Than Ezra

House of Blues : 7:30 p.m. August 29

Almost everyone remembers Better Than Ezra from “Good,” their 1995 hit that helped beat back rock’s tide of post-grunge gloom and opened the door for similar guitar-pop bands like Matchbox 20, Fastball and Vertical Horizon. But while “Good” may be the headline,... More >>

Downtown/ Midtown Rock, Alternative

August Alsina

Warehouse Live : 8:00 p.m. August 29

This show has already sold out, so time to hit up the “secondary market.” But August Alsina is that hot, no thanks to rumors that he’s now dating Nicki Minaj. She’s definitely a fan of the New Orleans-bred singer’s “No Love” single, because she appears... More >>

East End Rap

Dimefest 8

BFE Rock Club : 6:00 p.m. August 30

Local metal bands pay tribute to fallen Metal Gods “Dimebag” Darrell Abbott and Ronnie James Dio at the 8th Annual Dimefest. The founding Pantera guitarist was tragically shot and killed onstage back in 2004 while playing with Damageplan, which he formed with his brother, drummer... More >>

Jersey Village Tribute, Metal

Hamilton Loomis

Main Street Crossing : 8:00 p.m. August 30

Galveston native Hamilton Loomis began playing blues guitar in front of thousands of people as a teenager. Over the years, the Grammy-nominated guitarist has kept it simple. He focused on learning from the best — Bo Diddley and Clarence “Gatemouth” Brown among them —... More >>

Luther & The Healers

Shakespeare Pub : 9:30 p.m. August 30

If you're not privy to Houston blues staples Luther & the Healers, it's about time you were. They're mainstays around here for a reason, namely soulful vocals; howling guitar licks; and a thick, steady bass groove. Experts at their craft, the Healers incorporate the sounds of blues hotspots... More >>

Memorial Blues

KISS & Def Leppard

Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion : 7:00 p.m. August 31

If there’s a better summer arena/amphitheater tour by aging glam-rockers out there somewhere, it hasn’t surfaced yet — and we’re quickly running out of summer. Neither KISS nor Def Leppard needs much of an introduction, and fans know they’ll be getting plenty of... More >>

Outside Houston Hard Rock, Rock, Metal

Kentucky Headhunters

Dosey Doe : 7:30 p.m. August 31

It seems like another lifetime ago that the Kentucky Headhunters were among Nashville’s leading rabble-rousers, but it’s still easy enough to detect a shot or two of the quartet’s bourbon in latter-day stars from Florida Georgia Line to Cadillac Three. Formed in Edmonton,... More >>

Outside Houston Country, Southern Rock

Ray Wylie Hubbard

Main Street Crossing : 8:00 p.m. September 3

Ray Wylie Hubbard likes to live by words he eventually set to music in the song “Mother Blues” from his 2012 album The Grifters’ Hymnal: “The days I keep my gratitude higher than my expectations, well, I have really good days.” The 67-year-old iconoclastic... More >>

Outside Houston Country

Big Ass Blues Jam

The Hideaway On Dunvale : 9:30 p.m. every Tue.; 9:30 p.m. September 2

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

Nick Greer & The G's

The Corkscrew : 9:00 p.m. every Fri.; 9:00 p.m. August 29

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 >>

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

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 >>
