House of Blues : 6:30 p.m. November 21

With all apologies to Relient K and Blondfire, can we take a moment to talk about how great the new From Indian Lakes record is? Absent Sounds is one of the best records to come out this year, and “Sleeping Limbs” is one of the best songs that no one is talking about. Yeah,... More >>

Bubble Puppy

Fitzgerald's : 8:00 p.m. November 21

Leon Russell

House of Blues : 7:00 p.m. November 24

The 1975

Bayou Music Center : 7:00 p.m. November 26

The 1975 sounds exactly like a band that cut their teeth on as many Brian Eno as Michael Jackson and Rolling Stones songs. Unlikely as it sounds, that’s exactly how the Manchester four-piece got their start more than a decade ago and reached fruition on last year’s eponymous debut... More >>
