DJ Sun

The Flat : 9:00 p.m. every Mon.; 9:00 p.m. October 27

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

honeyhoney

Continental Club : 7:00 p.m. October 24

Call it the Civil Wars syndrome: Boy-girl Americana duos are fast becoming one of this decade’s most overhyped pop-music trends, but unfairly so in the case of honeyhoney. However, Suzanne Santo and Ben Jaffe’s L.A.-based band actually appeared well ahead of all this media interest,... More >>

Downtown/ Midtown Folk, Americana

Mike Doughty

Warehouse Live : 7:00 p.m. October 24

New York City-based Soul Coughing plied a peculiar brand of jazz, folk and Violent Femmes-like acoustic rock; like a lot of offbeat ’90s acts, they managed a couple of hit singles, 1996’s “Super Bon Bon” and “Circles” two years later. They then disappeared... More >>

East End Singer-Songwriter

Pujol & Screaming Females

Walter's Downtown : 8:00 p.m. October 24

Few feelings can match the exuberance of playing rock and roll in your early twenties. It’s a potent combination of arrogance, recklessness and a hint of vulnerability that, done right, taps into the grand tradition of the Stones, the Clash, the Replacements, the Strokes and the Arctic... More >>

Downtown/ Midtown Punk, Indie Rock

Jimmy Lafave

McGonigel's Mucky Duck : 7:00 p.m. October 25

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, mixing up tender classics like Jimmy Webb's "The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress" with jump-jivin' Chuck Berry butt-shakers and... More >>

Lower Shepherd-Kirby Singer-Songwriter

Alan Haynes

The Big Easy Social and Pleasure Club : 9:00 p.m. October 25

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

Shake Russell

Anderson Fair Retail Restaurant : 9:00 p.m. October 25

There was a time when Shake Russell could’ve run for mayor in Houston and probably finished with enough votes to shame both political parties. He might even have pulled a majority in Montrose and the Heights. For almost 30 years, Russell was a duo with Dana Cooper, and the pair... More >>

Montrose Singer-Songwriter

The Bellamy Brothers

Dosey Doe : 7:30 p.m. October 26

Chances are, subconsciously, you know the entire Bellamy Brothers catalog by heart. That's the magic, for better or worse, of siblings David and Homer's tuneful, mellow country-rock — if such a thing were possible, they would be the Journey of the twanging set. At times the going does get... More >>

Outside Houston Country

Arctic Monkeys

Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion : 7:00 p.m. October 30

Besides spearheading this latest Britpop revival (you’re welcome, Bastille), Arctic Monkeys have mellowed a little of the manic energy but otherwise haven’t shed a strand of DNA from the brash UK teens who first appeared on 2006’s Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What... More >>

Outside Houston Indie Rock

Julian Casablancas & the Voidz

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

The Strokes seem content to collect big-festival paychecks and little else these days, leaving Julian Casablancas et al. seeking their musical thrills elsewhere. And while there’s still plenty of his parent band’s sleek garage-rock in Casablancas’s latest offshoot, the Voidz,... More >>

Downtown/ Midtown Indie Rock

Disco Expressions

Continental Club : 9:00 p.m. October 31

Halloween falls on a Friday this year, and I have the perfect costume: I’m going as Sia, so look for me wearing a platinum-blond wig and standing in a corner with my back to everyone at the Continental Club, where Disco Expressions and the Allen Oldies Band are performing. They’ll... More >>

Downtown/ Midtown Disco

Midnight River Choir

Firehouse Saloon : 9:00 p.m. October 31

As origin stories go, Midnight River Choir have a pretty good one. According to their Facebook page, four strangers floated a river near their New Braunfels hometown and ended up a band. (And hey, why not?) Two albums later, the Choir is winning over crowds on the dance-hall circuit with a... More >>

Galleria Country

Bleachers

Fitzgerald's : 7:00 p.m. November 1

When your platinum-selling, Grammy-winning band is faced with some much-deserved down time, where else would you want to go but…the ’80s? That’s how Jack Antonoff, guitarist for millennial NYC power-pop sensations fun., reinvented himself as Bleachers once wrapping the tour... More >>

Heights Indie Rock

The English Beat

Scout Bar : 7:00 p.m. November 1

2-tone deserved better. Otherwise known as the second wave of ska — the first being the ­reggae-tinged '60s Jamaican scene that produced the Wailers, the third the rock-tinged form that ruled the mid-'90s — this late-'70s strain originated from an English label whose roster... More >>

Clear Lake Ska

Matt the Electrician

Anderson Fair Retail Restaurant : 9:00 p.m. November 1

Austin's Matt the Electrician (Matthew Sower to his family and friends) is one of a handful of brainy, somewhat quiet Central Texas singer-songwriters who write with considerable plainfolks wit, down-to-earth blue-collar common sense and smart-folks ideas. What emerges are songs like "Change... More >>

Montrose Singer-Songwriter

The Psychedelic Furs

House of Blues : 7:00 p.m. November 2

The Psychedelic Furs are a study in retroactive popularity. They toiled in the punk and new wave underground for years before finding success as the inspiration for a John Hughes movie in 1986. They re-recorded that song ("Pretty in Pink") for the soundtrack, and after being an afterthought for... More >>

Downtown/ Midtown Rock, Post-Punk, New Wave

Rachael Yamagata

Fitzgerald's : 7:00 p.m. November 3

Rachael Yamagata’s thoughtful, well-bred take on adult pop clearly marks her as one of Carole King’s spiritual godchildren. Since her debut LP, Happenstance, appeared a decade ago, the 37-year-old Arlington, Virginia, native has landed her songs on scores of prime-time TV shows and... More >>

Heights Singer-Songwriter

The Weeks

Warehouse Live : 7:00 p.m. November 4

Just as Kings of Leon have seemingly lost their grip on younger fans’ imaginations, here come the Weeks to ensure that modern rock doesn’t lose its Southern accent. Even younger and rangier than the Followills circa Youth and Young Manhood, the Nashville-via-Mississippi quintet are... More >>

East End Indie Rock

King Diamond

House of Blues : 7:00 p.m. November 5

Mercyful Fate’s former front man has inspired a wave of metalheads from Metallica to Ghost BC. His aesthetic, lyricism and music have informed more artists than one could count. But many would have assumed that after a near-fatal heart attack and a serious back injury, King Diamond was... More >>

Downtown/ Midtown Metal

Single Mothers

Walter's Downtown : 8:00 p.m. November 5

Vote first, please, but if you’re looking to release some Election-Day frustration — no matter your side of the political aisle — head over to Walters for a stiff dose of Single Mothers’ eardrum-assaulting nihilism. Carrying on the sneering tradition of Northern... More >>

Downtown/ Midtown Punk

Paul Ramirez Band

Continental Club : 9:00 p.m. every Wed.; 9:00 p.m. October 29

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

Big Ass Blues Jam

The Hideaway On Dunvale : 9:30 p.m. every Tue.; 9:30 p.m. October 28

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

Something Wicked

part of Halloween
Sam Houston Race Park : 2:00 p.m. October 25; 2:00 p.m. October 26

Quite possibly one of the biggest dance music festivals this city holds, Something Wicked is a bass-lovers dream, but with a wicked Halloween twist. This devilish festival at Sam Houston Racepark is all about dropping the bass and costumery, from the themed stage production to the thundering... More >>

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

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 >>
