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. 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

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 >>

Lower Shepherd-Kirby Roots

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 >>

East End Rap

Dimefest 8

BFE Rock Club : 6:00 p.m. August 30

Local metal bands pay tribute to fallen Metal Gods “Dimebag” Darrell Abbott and Ronnie James Dio at the 8th Annual Dimefest. The founding Pantera guitarist was tragically shot and killed onstage back in 2004 while playing with Damageplan, which he formed with his brother, drummer... More >>

Jersey Village Tribute, Metal

Hamilton Loomis

Main Street Crossing : 8:00 p.m. August 30

Galveston native Hamilton Loomis began playing blues guitar in front of thousands of people as a teenager. Over the years, the Grammy-nominated guitarist has kept it simple. He focused on learning from the best — Bo Diddley and Clarence “Gatemouth” Brown among them —... More >>

Outside Houston Rock, Funk, Blues

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. They're mainstays around here for a reason, namely soulful vocals; howling guitar licks; and a thick, steady bass groove. Experts at their craft, the Healers incorporate the sounds of blues hotspots... More >>

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 >>

Outside Houston Country, Southern Rock

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 >>

Outside Houston Country


Fitzgerald's : 8:00 p.m. September 4

Tyler’s Eisley is one of the more unusual Texas acts to emerge out of the ’00s, a group of school-age siblings from the Piney Woods whose lush, eerie folk-pop was embraced by the indie world all the same. The members are all grown up now, and while Eisley is still very much a going... More >>

Heights Indie Pop

Jason Mraz

Cullen Performance Hall : 8:00 p.m. September 5

Head out to the UH campus for a night of cutesy rock jams from one of the dearest singer-songwriters to hit the industry since at least Tiny Tim. Jason Mraz is like catnip for girls, and usually makes boys shrug in confusion. Even still, we turn up the volume when his "I'm Yours" comes on the... More >>

Third Ward Singer-Songwriter


Bayou Music Center : 8:30 p.m. September 5

Without a whole lot of fanfare, South Carolina’s NEEDTOBREATHE is probably the first band since Switchfoot to fully cross over from contemporary Christian music into the mainstream; beyond even that, they’ve become one of the biggest rock groups of the 21st century, period. Since... More >>

Downtown/ Midtown Alternative

The Invincible Czars

Rudyard's : 9:00 p.m. September 5

It's always interesting to see what the Invincible Czars will get up to next. In the past, the Austin art-rockers with the revolving-door membership have released anything from distinctive versions of Tchaikovsky's "1812" overture and Nutcracker Suite to copious original works with a little bit... More >>

Montrose Indie Rock

Micky & the Motorcars

Cypress Saloon : 8:00 p.m. September 6

Steered by the youngest two brothers of the same Austin-via-Idaho clan that spawned regional stars Reckless Kelly, Micky & the Motorcars share a relentless road-dog ethic and Joe Ely/Steve Earle rockin'-country sensibility, but are hardly a carbon copy. Since debuting in 2003 with the... More >>

Cypress Alt-Country

Danseparc - The Wedding Party

Numbers : 9:00 p.m. September 6

Eons before Houston was universally acknowledged as the hipster paradise we all know today (psych), the folks behind Danceparc made it their mission to give Bayou City crowds a night of music they could dance to and still respect themselves in the morning. Some 12 years ago, Shoe Latif and a... More >>

Montrose Electro, New Wave, Post-Punk, DJ, Indie Rock, Indie Pop

The Ugly Beats

Big Top Lounge : 10:00 p.m. September 6

The Ugly Beats aren’t nearly as self-consciously cool as many of their Austin musical neighbors, because they don’t need to be. Honed by a decade or so of near-constant gigging at 512-area nightspots such as Hotel Vegas, Beerland and the Carousel Lounge, the quintet’s... More >>

Downtown/ Midtown Garage, Pop

Kinky Friedman

Main Street Crossing : 7:00 p.m. September 7

In other people's minds (if not his own), "musician" has slipped a few notches on Kinky Friedman's résumé in the past few years, beneath "best-selling mystery novelist," "animal-rights crusader," "former gubernatorial candidate" and "former Texas Agriculture Commissioner... More >>

Outside Houston Country, Comedy

Aretha Franklin

Arena Theatre : 8:00 p.m. September 9

Through no fault of her own, Aretha Franklin stumbled into 2014’s more improbable headlines in July, when the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer (class of ’87) stopped off to grab a post-concert burger at a Niagara Falls-area Johnny Rockets and was told her chosen table was reserved for... More >>

Outer Loop - SW Soul, Pop, Gospel

Cory Branan

Rudyard's : 8:00 p.m. September 9

Thank the Good Lord people like Nikki Lane, Sturgill Simpson and Cory Branan are around to keep country music honest, because there’s only so many Mötley Crüe tribute albums Nashville can put out before the whole thing falls apart. Featured on NPR’s All Things Considered... More >>

Montrose Roots, Country, Singer-Songwriter

Rhett Miller

McGonigel's Mucky Duck : 9:30 p.m. September 10

Since 2002's The Instigator, Rhett Miller has carved out a nice little sideline making solo albums that showcase his skill with pairing winsome melodies to romantic lyrics, without all that darned electricity that marks his main gig in Dallas alt-country heroes the Old 97's. During lulls in... More >>

Lower Shepherd-Kirby Singer-Songwriter, Rock

Big Ass Blues Jam

The Hideaway On Dunvale : 9:30 p.m. every Tue.; 9:30 p.m. September 2

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

Glover Gill

Continental Club : 8:00 p.m. every Mon.; 8:00 p.m. September 8

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

Nick Greer & The G's

The Corkscrew : 9:00 p.m. every Fri.; 9:00 p.m. August 29

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 >>

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 >>
