DJ Sun

The Flat : 9:00 p.m. every Mon.; 9:00 p.m. October 27

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 >>

House of Blues-- Bronze Peacock Room : 7:00 p.m. October 21

Last year, the most badass statistical analyst you've ever heard of, Matt Daniels, released something called the Hip-Hop Flow Chart, which ranked several popular rap acts by vocabulary size. I pored over the results like a rap geek and wondered how could Daniels have missed this prolific... More >>

Downtown/ Midtown Music


Stafford Centre : 8:00 p.m. October 22

Everybody knows Heart thanks to a handful of classic-rock radio staples, but few people consider the band much beyond "Crazy on You." While Heart's chart-toppers have firmly ensconced the Seattle-formed band in rock history as one of the first female-fronted hard-rock acts, their misleading... More >>

Jason Aldean

Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion : 6:30 p.m. October 23

The Woodlands Pavilion closes its blockbuster-country season with two pillars of the oft-derided “bro” movement now making tentative steps toward maturity. For Aldean, his Alabama-referencing bedroom jam “Burnin’ It Down” represents an opportunity to shed some of... More >>

Warehouse Live : 8:00 p.m. October 23

One of the first rappers to break big in the 2010s, Atlanta’s B.o.B. has shown an uncommon flair for veering outside the hip-hop mainstream that easily dovetails with his preacher’s-son charisma. He originally made a big splash with 2010 debut B.o.B. Presents: The Adventures of... More >>

The Colorado Halloween Monster Mash

part of Halloween
Colorado Bar & Grill : 11:00 a.m. October 24

It’s hard to imagine a Monster Mash where the partiers are both semi-naked yet still somehow costumed, but if there’s any place that can pull such a thing off, it’s The Colorado Bar & Grill. They are, after all, a hunting-lodge-themed topless bar filled with not only stages... More >>

Outer Loop - SW Adult, Halloween, Parties and Receptions


Continental Club : 7:00 p.m. October 24

Call it the Civil Wars syndrome: Boy-girl Americana duos are fast becoming one of this decade’s most overhyped pop-music trends, but unfairly so in the case of honeyhoney. However, Suzanne Santo and Ben Jaffe’s L.A.-based band actually appeared well ahead of all this media interest,... More >>

Downtown/ Midtown Music

Mike Doughty

Warehouse Live : 7:00 p.m. October 24

New York City-based Soul Coughing plied a peculiar brand of jazz, folk and Violent Femmes-like acoustic rock; like a lot of offbeat ’90s acts, they managed a couple of hit singles, 1996’s “Super Bon Bon” and “Circles” two years later. They then disappeared... More >>

East End Music

Pujol & Screaming Females

Walter's Downtown : 8:00 p.m. October 24

Few feelings can match the exuberance of playing rock and roll in your early twenties. It’s a potent combination of arrogance, recklessness and a hint of vulnerability that, done right, taps into the grand tradition of the Stones, the Clash, the Replacements, the Strokes and the Arctic... More >>

Downtown/ Midtown Music

Jimmy Lafave

McGonigel's Mucky Duck : 7:00 p.m. October 25

One of the smoothest vocalists around, LaFave can make listeners happy singing even the saddest of ballads. LaFave, a former drummer, works both sides of the musical street, mixing up tender classics like Jimmy Webb's "The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress" with jump-jivin' Chuck Berry butt-shakers and... More >>

Lower Shepherd-Kirby Music

Alan Haynes

The Big Easy Social and Pleasure Club : 9:00 p.m. October 25

Being a fairly well-known blues guitarist in Austin, Texas, is like being a retired old coot in Coral Springs, Florida. Who in town isn’t? But Alan Haynes stands out thanks to a tireless dedication to the blues and a résumé that’d make even the most well-established... More >>

Kirby-West U Music

Shake Russell

Anderson Fair Retail Restaurant : 9:00 p.m. October 25

There was a time when Shake Russell could’ve run for mayor in Houston and probably finished with enough votes to shame both political parties. He might even have pulled a majority in Montrose and the Heights. For almost 30 years, Russell was a duo with Dana Cooper, and the pair... More >>

Montrose Music

The Bellamy Brothers

Dosey Doe : 7:30 p.m. October 26

Chances are, subconsciously, you know the entire Bellamy Brothers catalog by heart. That's the magic, for better or worse, of siblings David and Homer's tuneful, mellow country-rock — if such a thing were possible, they would be the Journey of the twanging set. At times the going does get... More >>

John Egan

The Big Easy Social and Pleasure Club : 8:00 p.m. every Mon.; 8:00 p.m. October 20

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.

Asia Society Texas Center : 11:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. every Tue., Wed., Thu., Fri., Sat., Sun. until January 4
