John Legend

Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion : 8:00 p.m. July 23

Since debuting with 2004’s Get Lifted and its breakout single, “Ordinary People,” John Legend had been waiting for his moment. Previously the 35-year-old Philadelphia-raised singer/pianist was comfortable carrying on the legacy of R&B greats like Marvin Gaye and Curtis... More >>

Outside Houston R&B

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

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 : 9:00 p.m. July 24; 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

Big Ass Blues Jam

The Hideaway On Dunvale : 9:30 p.m. every Tue.; 9:30 p.m. July 22

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 >>

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 >>

Downtown/ Midtown Rock, Variety, Blues

DJ Sun

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. 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

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

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

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 Funk

Beetle (Beatles Tribute)

Continental Club : 7:00 p.m. every Thu.

Every Thursday, Houstonians of all drinking ages twist and shout through Beetle's three-hour magical mystery happy hour set. Covering every single stop along the Fab Four's pop odyssey, the weekly event has a devoted following, which means the Continental Club's dance floor can get crowded. Get... More >>

Downtown/ Midtown Tribute

Little Joe Washington

Continental Club : 7:00 p.m. August 8; 7:00 p.m. August 22

Out of a Third Ward blues guitar school that has now graduated to the great beyond Albert Collins, Johnny Clyde Copeland, Johnny Guitar Watson and Joe Guitar Hughes, Little Joe Washington is the last man standing. And he's hardly standing still: He's also pedaling his Schwinn from gig to gig,... More >>

Downtown/ Midtown Blues

Fistful Of Soul

Big Top Lounge : 10:00 p.m. third Fri. of every month

If you're seeking a scene, maaaaaaaaaan, you could do a hell of a lot worse than A Fistful of Soul, the monthly where some of Houston's grooviest DJs drip rare (and not-so-rare) vintage wax all over Midtown. Now steered by Joe Ross, Stewart Anderson and Alex LaRotta, Fistful dates back to the... More >>

Downtown/ Midtown DJ

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

Speak Easy Jazz Night featuring Free Radicals

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 >>

Montrose Jazz

House of Blues : 1:00 p.m. every other week Sun.

Praise the Lord and pass the biscuits! The award-winning Gospel Brunch at House of Blues is a one-of-a-kind live music and dining experience.
