Ilona Andrews: Magic Breaks

Murder by the Book : 6:30 p.m. July 29

Perhaps the pen name “Ilona Andrews” is a bit of a misnomer, since it leads one to believe that the writer is a singular entity. But as any Ilona fan will tell you, the name is not rep-resentative of just one author, but rather a husband-and-wife duo, and they’re pretty... More >>

DJ Sun

The Flat : 9:00 p.m. every Mon.; 9:00 p.m. August 4

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 >>

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...

Downtown/ Midtown Music


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 >>

Peter Murphy

Scout Bar : 7:00 p.m. July 31

After a 2013 tour behind his back catalog that showed definite signs of goth fatigue, Peter Murphy sounds totally rejuvenated on last month’s Lion, his first album of original material in three years and best in quite some time. On tracks like “I Am My Own Name” and... More >>

Clear Lake Music

Steve Martin & the Steep Canyon Rangers featuring Edie Brickell

Jones Hall For the Performing Arts : 7:30 p.m. July 31

Banjo has been part of Steve Martin’s stage act since his ’70s standup comedy days, so it’s especially funny to see the media treat the 68-year-old comic legend like music is some kind of hobby with him. Especially in this decade, the Waco-born Martin — 2005 winner of... More >>

Downtown/ Midtown Music


Fitzgerald's : 8:00 p.m. July 31

Houston’s reclusive Indian Jewelry revel in both psychedelic drone and visceral throb, a recipe that has made them one of the most enigmatic and acclaimed musical units in Bayou City history. Often mingling plutonium-heavy Suicide-like electronica and prime Sonic Youth-style noise-rock,... More >>

Heights Music

Total Abuse

Mango's : 9:00 p.m. August 1

Modern hardcore a tad too cute for you? You certainly wouldn’t be alone in that sentiment, but take care that you’re ready for the alternative. From the all-too-safe environs of Austin, punk terrorists Total Abuse have been savagely battering audiences with their uniquely disturbed... More >>

Montrose Music

Galactic Cowboys

Warehouse Live : 8:00 p.m. August 2

Another remnant of the early-’90s hard-rock revolution, Houston’s Galactic Cowboys were one of the most promising progressive-metal bands around until they ran straight into the grunge buzzsaw that also hobbled their neighbors and onetime Geffen labelmates King’s X. On albums... More >>

East End Music

Lil Boosie

NRG Arena : 8:00 p.m. August 2

After five long years spent living inside the Louisiana State Penitentiary, “Ratchet” rapper Lil Boosie is looking to make up for some lost time. The Baton Rouge MC, fresh out of the joint after serving time for drug offenses, returns to Houston as one of the South’s hottest... More >>

Inner Loop - SW Music

Tony! Toni! Toné! and K-Ci & JoJo

Arena Theatre : 8:00 p.m. August 2

Probably the two biggest male groups in early-'90s R&B (give or take a Boyz II Men or Bell Biv DeVoe or two), both Tony! Toni! Tone! and Jodeci have plenty of fans more than two decades later. Both groups could switch between steamy dance-floor jams and silky-smooth bedroom ballads with ease,... More >>

Outer Loop - SW Music

Ray Lamontagne

Jones Hall For the Performing Arts : 7:30 p.m. August 3

Ray LaMontagne has been recognized as one of the 21st century’s leading brown-eyed soul singers almost immediately since his debut, Trouble, appeared in 2004. Channeling greats like Sam Cooke, Otis Redding and Van Morrison into his world-weary croon, the New Englander has now released... More >>

Take Two: Jaws

Houston Museum of Natural Science : 7:00 p.m. August 22

What Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho did for the shower, Steven Spielberg’s Jaws (1975) did for summer swimming. People still get chills looking into the dark depths from the shore, anxious about dipping their feet into the waiting hungry mouth of…boom, boom, boom, boom, boom,... More >>

Nick Greer & The G's

The Corkscrew : 9:00 p.m. every Fri.; 9:00 p.m. August 1

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 >>

Forget legendary, gruesome Troy, or the epic clash of east and west during the Greco-Persian Wars, or even the ill-fated shipwrecked Spanish armada in 1588 — the greatest fighting force ever assembled and sent into battle was Operation Overlord, the U.S. invasion of France launched upon... More >>

Hands-on History

George Ranch Historical Park : 11:00 a.m. every Tue., Wed., Thu., Fri., Sat. until August 30

There’s nothing quite like taking the time to check out the old George Ranch in Richmond, but it’s especially enticing when there are events like Hands-On History. This series of historic-themed experiences is taking place throughout the summer, and they’re adding a bit of... More >>

Drama in the House: Barry Lyndon

Museum of Fine Arts, Houston - Brown Auditorium Theater : 6:00 p.m. July 31; 5:00 p.m. August 3

Auteur filmmaker Stanley Kubrick (Spartacus, Lolita, Dr. Strangelove, 2001: A Space Odyssey) is a throwback to Hollywood’s golden age, as much of a cinematic perfectionist as Alfred Hitchcock, John Ford or Cecil B. DeMille. But his movies are always a bit chilly in their clinical... More >>

DJ Wes Wallace

Numbers : 9:00 p.m. every Fri.; 9:00 p.m. August 1

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 >>

“National Geographic’s Real Pirates”

Moody Gardens : 10:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. daily until September 28

To an entire generation, the word “pirate” brings to mind an effete but basically harmless Johnny Depp with historically inaccurate eyeliner acting like a drunk Keith Richards. The true scalawags of the seas were a bit more dangerous. The exhibit “National Geographic’s... More >>
