There’s the usual rivalries and Gothic relationships between families and friends. Yet the characters are more jet-set swingers than salt of the earth — even when they call the fictional town of Harrison, Texas, home. Acclaimed playwright Horton Foote was venturing pretty far afield... More >>

“Urban Asia: Kirk Pedersen”

Asia Society Texas Center : 11:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. every Tue., Wed., Thu., Fri., Sat., Sun. from September 3 until January 4

It’s impossible to create a definitive portrait of today’s urban Asia. No one image or setting captures the enormity of the region. No one artist or art form can encompass Asia’s current complex culture. Its residents are young but steeped in history. Technology and tradition... More >>

DJ Sun

The Flat : 9:00 p.m. every Mon.; 9:00 p.m. September 1

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.

Ray Wylie Hubbard

Ray Wylie Hubbard likes to live by words he eventually set to music in the song “Mother Blues” from his 2012 album The Grifters’ Hymnal: “The days I keep my gratitude higher than my expectations, well, I have really good days.” The 67-year-old iconoclastic... More >>

Outside Houston Music


Fitzgerald's : 8:00 p.m. September 4

Tyler’s Eisley is one of the more unusual Texas acts to emerge out of the ’00s, a group of school-age siblings from the Piney Woods whose lush, eerie folk-pop was embraced by the indie world all the same. The members are all grown up now, and while Eisley is still very much a going... More >>

Heights Music

Jason Mraz

Cullen Performance Hall : 8:00 p.m. September 5

Head out to the UH campus for a night of cutesy rock jams from one of the dearest singer-songwriters to hit the industry since at least Tiny Tim. Jason Mraz is like catnip for girls, and usually makes boys shrug in confusion. Even still, we turn up the volume when his "I'm Yours" comes on the... More >>

Third Ward Music


Bayou Music Center : 8:30 p.m. September 5

Without a whole lot of fanfare, South Carolina’s NEEDTOBREATHE is probably the first band since Switchfoot to fully cross over from contemporary Christian music into the mainstream; beyond even that, they’ve become one of the biggest rock groups of the 21st century, period. Since... More >>

The Invincible Czars

Rudyard's : 9:00 p.m. September 5

It's always interesting to see what the Invincible Czars will get up to next. In the past, the Austin art-rockers with the revolving-door membership have released anything from distinctive versions of Tchaikovsky's "1812" overture and Nutcracker Suite to copious original works with a little bit...

Montrose Music

Micky & the Motorcars

Cypress Saloon : 8:00 p.m. September 6

Steered by the youngest two brothers of the same Austin-via-Idaho clan that spawned regional stars Reckless Kelly, Micky & the Motorcars share a relentless road-dog ethic and Joe Ely/Steve Earle rockin'-country sensibility, but are hardly a carbon copy. Since debuting in 2003 with the... More >>

Danseparc - The Wedding Party

Numbers : 9:00 p.m. September 6

Eons before Houston was universally acknowledged as the hipster paradise we all know today (psych), the folks behind Danceparc made it their mission to give Bayou City crowds a night of music they could dance to and still respect themselves in the morning. Some 12 years ago, Shoe Latif and a... More >>

Montrose Music

The Ugly Beats

Big Top Lounge : 10:00 p.m. September 6

The Ugly Beats aren’t nearly as self-consciously cool as many of their Austin musical neighbors, because they don’t need to be. Honed by a decade or so of near-constant gigging at 512-area nightspots such as Hotel Vegas, Beerland and the Carousel Lounge, the quintet’s... More >>

Kinky Friedman

Main Street Crossing : 7:00 p.m. September 7

In other people's minds (if not his own), "musician" has slipped a few notches on Kinky Friedman's résumé in the past few years, beneath "best-selling mystery novelist," "animal-rights crusader," "former gubernatorial candidate" and "former Texas Agriculture Commissioner... More >>

Aretha Franklin

Arena Theatre : 8:00 p.m. September 9

Through no fault of her own, Aretha Franklin stumbled into 2014’s more improbable headlines in July, when the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer (class of ’87) stopped off to grab a post-concert burger at a Niagara Falls-area Johnny Rockets and was told her chosen table was reserved for... More >>

Cory Branan

Rudyard's : 8:00 p.m. September 9

Rhett Miller

McGonigel's Mucky Duck : 9:30 p.m. September 10

Since 2002's The Instigator, Rhett Miller has carved out a nice little sideline making solo albums that showcase his skill with pairing winsome melodies to romantic lyrics, without all that darned electricity that marks his main gig in Dallas alt-country heroes the Old 97's. During lulls in... More >>

The Hideaway On Dunvale : 9:30 p.m. every Tue.; 9:30 p.m. September 2

Glover Gill

Continental Club : 8:00 p.m. every Mon.; 8:00 p.m. September 8

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 >>

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. Now working on... More >>
