John Egan

The Big Easy Social and Pleasure Club : 8:00 p.m. every Mon.; 8:00 p.m. October 6

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.
