Carmen Boullosa: Texas: The Great Theft

Brazos Bookstore : 7:00 p.m. October 28

The struggle over the U.S.-Mexican border isn’t a new problem. Texas had become part of the United States in 1848. Question settled, right? Ah, no. In the years immediately following the Mexican-American War, military forces from both sides were often deployed. The era’s... 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.

At times the going does get... More >>

Outside Houston Music

Arctic Monkeys

Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion : 7:00 p.m. October 30

Besides spearheading this latest Britpop revival (you’re welcome, Bastille), Arctic Monkeys have mellowed a little of the manic energy but otherwise haven’t shed a strand of DNA from the brash UK teens who first appeared on 2006’s Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What... More >>

Julian Casablancas & the Voidz

House of Blues : 8:00 p.m. October 31

The Strokes seem content to collect big-festival paychecks and little else these days, leaving Julian Casablancas et al. seeking their musical thrills elsewhere. And while there’s still plenty of his parent band’s sleek garage-rock in Casablancas’s latest offshoot, the Voidz,... More >>

Midnight River Choir

Firehouse Saloon : 9:00 p.m. October 31

As origin stories go, Midnight River Choir have a pretty good one. According to their Facebook page, four strangers floated a river near their New Braunfels hometown and ended up a band.

When your platinum-selling, Grammy-winning band is faced with some much-deserved down time, where else would you want to go but…the ’80s? That’s how Jack Antonoff, guitarist for millennial NYC power-pop sensations fun., reinvented himself as Bleachers once wrapping the tour... More >>

The English Beat

Scout Bar : 7:00 p.m. November 1

2-tone deserved better. Otherwise known as the second wave of ska — the first being the ­reggae-tinged '60s Jamaican scene that produced the Wailers, the third the rock-tinged form that ruled the mid-'90s — this late-'70s strain originated from an English label whose roster... More >>

Matt the Electrician

Anderson Fair Retail Restaurant : 9:00 p.m. November 1

Austin's Matt the Electrician (Matthew Sower to his family and friends) is one of a handful of brainy, somewhat quiet Central Texas singer-songwriters who write with considerable plainfolks wit, down-to-earth blue-collar common sense and smart-folks ideas. What emerges are songs like "Change... More >>

The Psychedelic Furs

House of Blues : 7:00 p.m. November 2

The Psychedelic Furs are a study in retroactive popularity. They toiled in the punk and new wave underground for years before finding success as the inspiration for a John Hughes movie in 1986.

The Weeks

Warehouse Live : 7:00 p.m. November 4

Just as Kings of Leon have seemingly lost their grip on younger fans’ imaginations, here come the Weeks to ensure that modern rock doesn’t lose its Southern accent. Even younger and rangier than the Followills circa Youth and Young Manhood, the Nashville-via-Mississippi quintet are... More >>

King Diamond

House of Blues : 7:00 p.m. November 5

Mercyful Fate’s former front man has inspired a wave of metalheads from Metallica to Ghost BC. His aesthetic, lyricism and music have informed more artists than one could count. But many would have assumed that after a near-fatal heart attack and a serious back injury, King Diamond was... More >>

Single Mothers

Walter's Downtown : 8:00 p.m. November 5

Vote first, please, but if you’re looking to release some Election-Day frustration — no matter your side of the political aisle — head over to Walters for a stiff dose of Single Mothers’ eardrum-assaulting nihilism. Carrying on the sneering tradition of Northern... More >>
