Laugh My Ass Off (LMAO) Comedy Tour

Arena Theatre : 8:00 p.m. August 30

We don’t envy comedian Tony Rock. His brother, Chris Rock, is one of the funniest people on the planet; fans fill huge arenas to catch his live shows. Tony, on the other hand, stars in mostly straight-to-DVD films like The Redemption of a Dog and C’mon Man (we’ve never heard... More >>

End the summer on a high note at the family-friendly Disney in Concert: Magical Music from the Movies. The Houston Symphony will, of course, be pulling out all the cartoon-laden stops for the show.

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 >>

Finding Fela!

Museum of Fine Arts, Houston - Brown Auditorium Theater : 7:00 p.m. daily until August 30; 5:00 p.m. August 31

We like to “watch” movies rather than “listen” to them, but Finding Fela is an exception. We can close our eyes and “listen” to Finding Fela and get the documentary’s full message. Fela Kuti was the founder of the Afrobeat music genre and as such... 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. As affable as he is industrious, in 20 years Sun has become a soft-spoken cornerstone of the Houston music community, often... More >>

Better Than Ezra

House of Blues : 7:30 p.m. August 29

Almost everyone remembers Better Than Ezra from “Good,” their 1995 hit that helped beat back rock’s tide of post-grunge gloom and opened the door for similar guitar-pop bands like Matchbox 20, Fastball and Vertical Horizon. But while “Good” may be the headline,... More >>

Downtown/ Midtown Music

August Alsina

Warehouse Live : 8:00 p.m. August 29

This show has already sold out, so time to hit up the “secondary market.” But August Alsina is that hot, no thanks to rumors that he’s now dating Nicki Minaj. She’s definitely a fan of the New Orleans-bred singer’s “No Love” single, because she appears... More >>

Dimefest 8

BFE Rock Club : 6:00 p.m. August 30

Local metal bands pay tribute to fallen Metal Gods “Dimebag” Darrell Abbott and Ronnie James Dio at the 8th Annual Dimefest. The founding Pantera guitarist was tragically shot and killed onstage back in 2004 while playing with Damageplan, which he formed with his brother, drummer... More >>

Luther & The Healers

Shakespeare Pub : 9:30 p.m. August 30

If you're not privy to Houston blues staples Luther & the Healers, it's about time you were. They're mainstays around here for a reason, namely soulful vocals; howling guitar licks; and a thick, steady bass groove. Experts at their craft, the Healers incorporate the sounds of blues hotspots... More >>

Memorial Music

KISS & Def Leppard

Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion : 7:00 p.m. August 31

If there’s a better summer arena/amphitheater tour by aging glam-rockers out there somewhere, it hasn’t surfaced yet — and we’re quickly running out of summer. Neither KISS nor Def Leppard needs much of an introduction, and fans know they’ll be getting plenty of... More >>

Kentucky Headhunters

Dosey Doe : 7:30 p.m. August 31

It seems like another lifetime ago that the Kentucky Headhunters were among Nashville’s leading rabble-rousers, but it’s still easy enough to detect a shot or two of the quartet’s bourbon in latter-day stars from Florida Georgia Line to Cadillac Three. Formed in Edmonton,... More >>

Ray Wylie Hubbard

Main Street Crossing : 8:00 p.m. September 3

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 >>

Downtown/ Midtown Music

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 >>
