Winter Wonder Glam

Rudyard's : 9:00 p.m. December 30

The annual pre-New Year’s Eve ball at Rudyard’s, the “Winter Wonder Glam” is basically just an excuse for local music fans to put on something besides shorts if they want to, but the bands are usually killer. So break out those tails, because this year’s WWG is... More >>

Montrose Rock

A Fistful Of Soul

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

Since the turn of the decade, the collective of DJs who call themselves A Fistful of Soul have become one of the Houston music scene’s true feel-good success stories. What began as a small group of collectors who enjoyed seeking out rare soul/R&B 45s , which they played for their friends... More >>

Firehouse Saloon : 9:00 p.m. December 25

Put on your cowboy hat and boots (or not) and head on over to Firehouse Saloon for Houston native Rich O'Toole's “Christmas Down In Texas” show. Country-rocker O’Toole, who released his fifth studio album, Jaded, this year, has had an impressive 14 top ten hits on Texas... More >>

End Of The World Fest III Day 2

Fitzgerald's : 4:00 p.m. December 20

If the apocalypse was really supposed to happen on 12-21-2012, this weekend’s bands have now had two full years to sit around and stew that it didn’t — and lucky us. Instead of pestilence and widespread misery, Fitz throws open its doors for an entire weekend of headbanging... More >>

Heights Metal

John Egan

The Big Easy Social and Pleasure Club : 8:00 p.m. every Mon.; 8:00 p.m. December 22

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

Nick Greer

The Corkscrew : 6:00 p.m. every Thu.; 6:00 p.m. December 18

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

Buzzfestivus

Bayou Music Center : 7:00 p.m. December 19

The lineup of 94.5 The Buzz’s annual Yuletide ball is an eye-opening example of just how much hand-wringing jock-rock is now in retreat on alternative radio; there’s not a Chevelle in sight. Of the four acts walking onstage Friday night, England’s You Me at Six probably... More >>

Downtown/ Midtown Rock, Festival, Electronica

Nick Greer & The G's

The Corkscrew : 9:00 p.m. every Fri.; 9:00 p.m. December 26

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

Alan Haynes

The Big Easy Social and Pleasure Club : 9:00 p.m. December 27

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 >>

Kirby-West U Blues

Lee Fields & the Expressions

Warehouse Live : 8:00 p.m. December 19

In the ongoing “vintage soul” revival, New Jersey-born Lee Fields has been one of the primary artists discovered by the younger generation, right there alongside Charles Bradley and Sharon Jones. A compact vocal dynamo once nicknamed “Little JB” for his striking... More >>

East End Soul, R&B

Trudy Lynn & Steve Krase

Cactus Music & Video : 3:00 p.m. December 20

It’s shaping up to be a merry Christmas indeed for Trudy Lynn and Steve Krase, musical partners and two of the local blues scene’s brightest stars. Now their talents have been drawing attention far beyond the Bayou City after the Fifth Ward diva’s late-2013 LP Royal Oaks Blues... More >>

Lower Shepherd-Kirby Blues

Shakey Graves

Fitzgerald's : 7:00 p.m. December 29

Shakey Graves, the musical alter ego of Austin’s Alejandro Rose-Garcia, is fast becoming the name to drop among the scruffy aspiring singer/songwriter set. As heard on the 2011 debut Roll the Bones, Graves’s DIY patchwork of folk and blues — accentuated by a kick-drum... More >>

Heights Singer-Songwriter

Walters Third Anniversary

Walter's Downtown : 8:00 p.m. December 26

Walters Downtown has had an eventful year, losing its founder, Pam Robinson, in October and transitioning into the hands of her son Zack Palmer, so the venue’s third-anniversary party looks to the future while anchoring itself to one of Houston’s most beloved bands. The Wild... More >>

Downtown/ Midtown Indie Pop

Josh Abbott Band

House of Blues : 8:00 p.m. December 31

By now, most of us can agree that 2015 can’t get here soon enough. Everyone celebrates New Year’s Eve differently, but these shows look more promising than most: In the absence of a nationally known act, big-timers (regionally speaking) Blue October and Josh Abbott Band post up at... More >>

Downtown/ Midtown Country

Molotov

Scout Bar : 7:00 p.m. December 19

Taking their admiration for Public Enemy, Beastie Boys and Rage Against the Machine south of the border, Molotov makes party-friendly rock en español with a pointed message. The Mexico City quartet has won four Latin Grammys since debuting with 1997’s ¿Dónde... More >>

Clear Lake Rock, Rap, Latin

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. 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

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

Analog Blitz!

Clutch City Squire : 9:00 p.m. every Wed.; 9:00 p.m. December 24

DJ Danny Chingersen spins an eclectic mix of garage, New Wave, funk, protopunk, soul, dirty blues, glam, and more every Wednesday night during Analog Blitz! at friendly downtown bar Clutch City Squire, located in the happening Market Square area.

Downtown/ Midtown Soul, Punk, New Wave, Garage, Funk, DJ, Blues

Andrew WK

Warehouse Live : 7:00 p.m. December 20

A fount of positivity as relentless as most of his orchestral-metal oeuvre, Andrew WK has also become a sort of working-man’s pundit thanks to his column in Houston Press sister paper the Village Voice, and lately has enjoyed a fair amount of TV exposure thanks to a ubiquitous... More >>

East End Rock

Down

Warehouse Live : 7:00 p.m. December 21

If the apocalypse was really supposed to happen on 12-21-2012, this weekend’s bands have now had two full years to sit around and stew that it didn’t — and lucky us. Instead of pestilence and widespread misery, Fitz throws open its doors for an entire weekend of headbanging... More >>

East End Metal

Spoon

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

The name of the game with Spoon is “seamless.” Britt Daniel and Jim Eno’s Austin-based group has — so incrementally it’s almost imperceptible — become one of the most successful indie bands of the past 20 years. But Daniel needed a break following... More >>

Downtown/ Midtown Indie Rock, Rock

Big Ass Blues Jam

The Hideaway On Dunvale : 9:30 p.m. every Tue.; 9:30 p.m. December 23

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

Heights Metal

DJ Wes Wallace

Numbers : 9:00 p.m. every Fri.; 9:00 p.m. December 26

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

Blue October

Bayou Music Center : 8:00 p.m. December 31
