It was 1960 and a group of men in Houston set out to build a “room.” Not just any “room;” mind you. They wanted to build the largest “room” in the world. It had to be big enough to hold an entire baseball field, bright enough to grow grass with natural light... More >>

The Piano Guys

Bayou Music Center : 7:00 p.m. September 24

Marketing professionals will tell you that often, simplicity and directness is the key to establishing brand identity. So if you buy a ticket to see The Piano Guys, don’t expect to hear a horn section. Though you will, oddly enough, get a cello. Producers, videographers, songwriters and... More >>

If you’ve ever wanted to pump up with those Saturday Night Live muscle heads Hans and Franz, make your way down to Improv to catch a performance from comedian Kevin Nealon. He is, after all, one half of that meaty late night duo of olde. As a cast member during the SNL late ’80s... More >>

If you're not privy to Houston blues staples Luther & the Healers, it's about time you were.

Conor Oberst

House of Blues : 8:00 p.m. September 19

Conor Oberst was wise to be a little leery of all the “voice of a generation” accolades that began cropping up when his Omaha-based band Bright Eyes first appeared in the late ‘90s; then again, he could have been too busy pouring out his soul to even notice. His... More >>

Porter Robinson

Stereo Live : 8:00 p.m. September 21

Porter Robinson was primed to be the great wunderkind of EDM, so the fact that his new album Worlds has been labeled post-EDM is at least a little funny.

Fitzgerald's : 8:00 p.m. September 25

Jungle should slake the thirst of anyone tired of dancing to Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky,” if indeed such a thing is possible. The London duo actually predates their French ancestors’ megahit by a few months, first appearing in early 2013 with a pair of singles,... More >>
