Leon Russell

House of Blues : 7:00 p.m. November 24

Though he's not quite a household name, Leon Russell's gospel-soaked style has infiltrated so much rock and pop of the past 40 years it's practically a genre of its own. The Lawton, Oklahoma native has been a go-to keyboardist, songwriter and partner in crime for almost too many stars to count... More >>

Downtown/ Midtown Singer-Songwriter

The 1975

Bayou Music Center : 7:00 p.m. November 26

The 1975 sounds exactly like a band that cut their teeth on as many Brian Eno as Michael Jackson and Rolling Stones songs. Unlikely as it sounds, that’s exactly how the Manchester four-piece got their start more than a decade ago and reached fruition on last year’s eponymous debut... More >>

Downtown/ Midtown Indie Rock

Jackson Taylor & the Sinners

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

Jackson Taylor & the Sinners’ songs are full of drinkin’, cussin’, fightin’, smokin’ and associating with ladies of ill repute — you know, the good stuff. The Wichita, Kansas, group wears their allegiance to outlaw heroes like Waylon, Shaver and Social... More >>

Galleria Singer-Songwriter

Thanksgiving for the Disenfranchised

Mango's : 8:00 p.m. November 27

Montrose live music venue Mango's, which specializes in hosting indie rock, hardcore, and extreme metal bands, is opening up for a potluck Thanksgiving dinner for those alienated from their families or who just want to get away after spending the day with them; everyone is invited, actually....

Montrose Holiday, DJ

Jimmy Lafave

McGonigel's Mucky Duck : 7:00 p.m. November 28

After all the nights without power, the gas lines and the ice shortages, Jimmy LaFave is a perfect musical palliative. One of the smoothest vocalists around, LaFave can make listeners happy singing even the saddest of ballads. LaFave, a former drummer, works both sides of the musical street,... More >>

Lower Shepherd-Kirby Singer-Songwriter

Dwight Yoakam

Arena Theatre : 9:00 p.m. November 28

Dwight Yoakam has spent a good bit of this fall as the main support act on Eric Church’s “The Outsiders” U.S. tour, which continues into January. At least for now, the tour is bypassing Houston (what else is new), but it’s good to see Dwight in front of arena-size crowds... More >>

Outer Loop - SW Country

Reverend Horton Heat

Scout Bar : 7:00 p.m. November 29

Sub Pop Records’ two main Southwestern standard-bearers throughout the ’90s, the Supersuckers and Reverend Horton Heat blazed a trail of hellfire and brimstone through the grunge years that audiences in these parts lapped up like whiskey in a drought. Between Supersuckers shaman... More >>

Clear Lake Rockabilly, Rock

James McMurtry

McGonigel's Mucky Duck : 9:30 p.m. November 29

From the my-how-time-flies category: James McMurtry, who plays a solo show at McGonigel's Mucky Duck Saturday, marks a quarter-century as a professional musician this year. He began his career in the late '80s by gaining recognition at songwriting events associated with the Kerrville Folk... More >>

Lower Shepherd-Kirby Americana

Night Ranger

Concert Pub (North) : 7:30 p.m. November 30

Night Ranger may be forever linked with the “bathrobe” scene in Boogie Nights, but there’s a lot more to recommend them than just “Sister Christian.” For a time the San Francisco rockers gave Journey a run for their money as the Bay Area’s biggest-selling... More >>

Jersey Village Rock

Common

Warehouse Live : 7:00 p.m. December 2

The most natural heir to Curtis Mayfield’s legacy of socially conscious and intrinsically soulful Chicago music (sorry, Kanye), Common doubles down on this year’s Nobody’s Smiling, tackling his hometown’s record-setting epidemic of gun violence head-on. That’s not... More >>

East End Hip-Hop

Melissa Etheridge

Bayou Music Center : 8:00 p.m. December 2

Even before Melissa Etheridge was one of the first mainstream musicians to come out as a lesbian, she was one of the few female rockers to register at all in the ’80s. Her 1988 hit single “Bring Me Some Water” eventually paved the way for the likes of Sheryl Crow, Shawn Colvin... More >>

Downtown/ Midtown Singer-Songwriter, Rock

Ryan Adams

Bayou Music Center : 7:00 p.m. December 3

Ryan Adams is a rock and roll sponge, possibly a Britpop savant, Gram Parsons acolyte or Grateful Dead noodler depending on what mood he’s in. However, he will have turned 40 by this visit to Houston, and no longer deserves to be defined by such aesthetic hair-splitting. His latest album... More >>

Downtown/ Midtown Singer-Songwriter

The Randy Rogers Band

House of Blues : 8:00 p.m. November 28; 8:00 p.m. November 29

About a year ago, the Randy Rogers Band and a tribe of their soon-to-be-hoarse Hill Country fans gathered at the legendary John T. Floore’s Country Store outside San Antonio for two nights of sawing fiddle, steamrolling drums and overdrive guitars. The weekend was captured on Homemade... More >>

Downtown/ Midtown Country

John Egan

The Big Easy Social and Pleasure Club : 8:00 p.m. every Mon.; 8:00 p.m. December 1

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

Big Ass Blues Jam

The Hideaway On Dunvale : 9:30 p.m. every Tue.; 9:30 p.m. November 25

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 >>

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 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

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.

Downtown/ Midtown Tribute

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

Paul Ramirez Band

Continental Club : 9:00 p.m. every Wed.

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

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

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

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 >>
