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 >>

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.

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 >>

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 >>

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.

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 >>

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 >>

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.

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.

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.
