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

Love Dominique

Warehouse Live : 7:00 p.m. July 25

Local diva Love Dominique’s 2013 EP Wicked Heart did well in two unsigned-talent contests sponsored by Billboard and the Grammys, but her eponymous full-length album (available now) makes a more proper introduction. Its 11 electronically guided tunes set a sexy mood begging for long... More >>

East End R&B

Junior Brown

Main Street Crossing : 8:00 p.m. July 25

The nearly universally held short take on Junior Brown is that he's the guy who fused Jimi Hendrix-style guitar playing with traditional country music -- especially that of Ernest Tubb. Alas, that thumbnail sketch misses what Brown is really all about. Yes, Brown did lace some of Hendrix's most... More >>

Outside Houston Country

Ana Popovic

Dosey Doe : 8:30 p.m. July 25

If there's one place that loves the blues more than Houston (and, okay, Chicago), it's Europe. Back when there was still a Yugoslavia, Belgrade native Ana Popovic became enchanted by the music, picking up the guitar in grammar school and playing festivals in Greece and Hungary by the time she...

Outside Houston Blues

The Music of Led Zeppelin

Jones Hall For the Performing Arts : 7:30 p.m. July 26

Finding Led Zeppelin songs that are crying out for orchestral arrangements (if not there already) isn’t much of a problem — the list starts with “Kashmir,” “Immigrant Song” and “The Ocean” and goes on. The real trick is to find a singer who can go... More >>

Downtown/ Midtown Classic Rock

Craig Kinsey

Fitzgerald's : 8:00 p.m. July 26

At this point, the Sideshow Tramps are a distant enough memory that it’s easy to forget how easily the Reverend Craig Kinsey and company once held the local scene in the palm of their collective hand. We get it — people grow and move on, maybe get sober, but even a bad Tramps show... More >>

Heights Singer-Songwriter, Rock, Country, Blues, Americana

Bri Bagwell & Scott Dean

Firehouse Saloon : 9:00 p.m. July 26

Those of us who have been watching Bri Bagwell for a while are still wondering when someone in Nashville or at one of the bigger Texas country/Red Dirt management teams is finally going to get around to giving her a real record deal. The New Mexico-based singer-songwriter, whose music is a... More >>

Galleria Country

The Chris Duarte Group

Dan Electro's Guitar Bar : 8:00 p.m. July 27

It's the most predictable cliche in music writing: all blues-rock power trios -- especially if the frontman's from Texas -- must be compared to Stevie Ray Vaughan. Why doesn't every profile of an electric guitar player carry a comparison to T-Bone Walker? Many guitar players -- Texan and... More >>

Heights Singer-Songwriter, Rock, Jazz, Blues

Counting Crows

Bayou Music Center : 8:00 p.m. July 29

The last time anyone looked, Counting Crows was still a plural entity -- a group, not a solo act. Yet if you judged by the stories written about the California band, you might assume it was a one-man operation, that man being photogenic and enigmatic singer Adam Duritz. Such media myopia is... More >>

Downtown/ Midtown Alternative


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

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


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

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

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

John Egan

The Big Easy Social and Pleasure Club : 8:00 p.m. every Mon.; 8:00 p.m. July 28

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

Rock Baby Rock It 14

Continental Club : 8:00 p.m. July 25; 1:00 p.m. July 26

Rock Baby Rock It is not just a rockabilly festival, it’s how the Continental Club has measured the passage of time. The club was barely open when the multi-day event began in 2000, and look at it now. Subsequent RBRIs have become an excellent yardstick to track the prosperity of... More >>

Downtown/ Midtown Rockabilly, Festival

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

Analog Blitz

Clutch City Squire : 9:00 p.m. every Wed.; 9:00 p.m. August 6

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. Play the bar's Tommy pinball machine while... More >>

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 >>
