Mariachi Cobre

Jones Hall For the Performing Arts : 7:30 p.m. July 25

The Houston Symphony has had a pretty wide range of collaborators in concert: rock bands…circus performers…Bugs Bunny cartoons. But a musical partner of more regional interest returns as the city’s biggest band presents a program once again with Mariachi Cobre. But make no... More >>

H-Town Sneaker Summit

NRG Center : 3:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. July 27

As any proper sneaker fanatic will tell you, the H-Town Sneaker Summit is the very best place to buy, sell, trade, browse or just gawk over thousands and thousands of sneakers. From vintage and collectibles to the biggest and best new releases, this community event really is the next best thing... More >>

Inner Loop - SW Shopping, Fashion and Style, Expos


Toyota Center : 6:30 p.m. July 28

The Houston edition of WWE — Raw will not be a typical one. Oh sure, you’ll get the usual collection of hard-hitting action, blood-boiling promos and fun crowd chants, but right now the WWE is on the road to SummerSlam. What that means for fans is to expect bigger because you... More >>

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 >>

Kirby-West U Literary Events, Arts

The Big Slide Show

Lawndale Art Center : 6:00 p.m. July 30; 6:00 p.m. July 31

Now that the Lawndale Art Center has opened its annual exhibit of juried works, it’s time as in previous editions for “The Big Slide Show.” In this informal two-night event, 40 of the total 106 participating artists this year each have five minutes to present images of their... 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 >>

Take Two: The Terminator

Houston Museum of Natural Science : 7:00 p.m. July 25

Who would have guessed that Arnold Schwarzenegger’s best acting role would be as a robot? A cyborg at that. And he’s terrific. In James Cameron’s sci-fi whooper The Terminator (1984), T-800 Model 101 arrives on earth from the year 2029, programmed to kill sweet, but mighty... More >>

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 Music

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 Music

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 Music

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 Music

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 Music

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 Music


Landmark River Oaks Theatre : 11:55 p.m. July 26

Trying to make amends for the laughably inept first Cole Porter biopic (Night and Day, 1946, which starred Cary Grant as an ultra-straight Porter), director Irwin Winkler presents a new version for the hip, out generation, De-Lovely (2004). It’s better, but not quite a total success.... More >>

Battle on the Bayou Beard & Mustache Competition

Super Happy Fun Land : 7:30 p.m. July 27

Watch out, facial hair enthusiasts; the Battle on the Bayou Beard & Mustache Competition may be too hot for you to handle. After all, this bearded battle will be so full of whiskers, you may not know where to start. May we suggest the goatee contest, where the combed, pruned and perfect facial... More >>

East End Benefits, Contests

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 Music

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 >>

Downtown/ Midtown Music

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 >>
