The SWAMP Salon Q-Fest 2014 Sneak is screening clips from most of the festival. This year's Q-Fest is titled Sweetest... More >>

John Legend

Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion : 8:00 p.m. July 23

Since debuting with 2004’s Get Lifted and its breakout single, “Ordinary People,” John Legend had been waiting for his moment. Previously the 35-year-old Philadelphia-raised singer/pianist was comfortable carrying on the legacy of R&B greats like Marvin Gaye and Curtis... More >>

Love Dominique

Warehouse Live : 7:00 p.m. July 25

Local diva Love Dominique’s 2013 EP Wicked Heart did well in two unsigned-talent contests sponsored by Billboard and the Grammys, but her eponymous full-length album (available now) makes a more proper introduction. Its 11 electronically guided tunes set a sexy mood begging for long... More >>

East End Music

Junior Brown

Main Street Crossing : 8:00 p.m. July 25

The nearly universally held short take on Junior Brown is that he's the guy who fused Jimi Hendrix-style guitar playing with traditional country music -- especially that of Ernest Tubb. Alas, that thumbnail sketch misses what Brown is really all about. Yes, Brown did lace some of Hendrix's most... More >>

Outside Houston Music

Ana Popovic

Dosey Doe : 8:30 p.m. July 25

If there's one place that loves the blues more than Houston (and, okay, Chicago), it's Europe. Back when there was still a Yugoslavia, Belgrade native Ana Popovic became enchanted by the music, picking up the guitar in grammar school and playing festivals in Greece and Hungary by the time she...

The Music of Led Zeppelin

Jones Hall For the Performing Arts : 7:30 p.m. July 26

Finding Led Zeppelin songs that are crying out for orchestral arrangements (if not there already) isn’t much of a problem — the list starts with “Kashmir,” “Immigrant Song” and “The Ocean” and goes on. The real trick is to find a singer who can go... More >>

Downtown/ Midtown Music

Craig Kinsey

Fitzgerald's : 8:00 p.m. July 26

At this point, the Sideshow Tramps are a distant enough memory that it’s easy to forget how easily the Reverend Craig Kinsey and company once held the local scene in the palm of their collective hand. We get it — people grow and move on, maybe get sober, but even a bad Tramps show... More >>

Heights Music

Bri Bagwell & Scott Dean

Firehouse Saloon : 9:00 p.m. July 26

Those of us who have been watching Bri Bagwell for a while are still wondering when someone in Nashville or at one of the bigger Texas country/Red Dirt management teams is finally going to get around to giving her a real record deal. The New Mexico-based singer-songwriter, whose music is a... More >>

Galleria Music

The Chris Duarte Group

Dan Electro's Guitar Bar : 8:00 p.m. July 27

It's the most predictable cliche in music writing: all blues-rock power trios -- especially if the frontman's from Texas -- must be compared to Stevie Ray Vaughan. Why doesn't every profile of an electric guitar player carry a comparison to T-Bone Walker? Many guitar players -- Texan and... More >>

Heights Music

Counting Crows

Bayou Music Center : 8:00 p.m. July 29

The last time anyone looked, Counting Crows was still a plural entity -- a group, not a solo act. Yet if you judged by the stories written about the California band, you might assume it was a one-man operation, that man being photogenic and enigmatic singer Adam Duritz. Such media myopia is...

Downtown/ Midtown Music


Bayou Music Center : 8:00 p.m. July 30

Here's one of those cases of a band making it purely on perseverance and positive attitude. 311 has come a long way from unsuccessful stabs at studio work in L.A., prodigal-son-like returns to the Midwest, dog-food poverty in Van Nuys, and the great exploding RV incident of '93. During its... More >>

Downtown/ Midtown Music

John Egan

The Big Easy Social and Pleasure Club : 8:00 p.m. every Mon.; 8:00 p.m. July 28

Solo bluesman John Egan sings in a tone that suggests someone is constantly walking over his grave, and his lyrics are loaded with bad mojo like nature gone haywire and apocalyptic visions. All he needs live is his National Resonator, one of those shiny silver guitars that sting and snarl. Egan... More >>

“La Frontera (The Borderlands)"

Houston Center for Contemporary Craft : 10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. every Tue., Wed., Thu., Fri., Sat. until September 6

The 1,969-mile-long Mexican-American border is the inspiration for “La Frontera (The Borderlands),” a collection of jewelry art on display at the Houston Center for Contemporary Craft. Participants were asked to create new work in response to the vibrant and often dangerous region,... More >>

Rock Baby Rock It 14

Continental Club : 9:00 p.m. July 24; 8:00 p.m. July 25; 1:00 p.m. July 26

Rock Baby Rock It is not just a rockabilly festival, it’s how the Continental Club has measured the passage of time. The club was barely open when the multi-day event began in 2000, and look at it now. Subsequent RBRIs have become an excellent yardstick to track the prosperity of... More >>

Ringling Bros. and Branum & Bailey Circus

NRG Center : Daily until July 27

It’s a spectacle. It’s the stuff of cherished childhood memories. It’s an invitation to see a world where anything is possible. It’s the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus: Built to Amaze! Among our favorite performers (and there are lots!) are Dmitry Dolgikh and... More >>

"Extreme Bugs"

Houston Zoo : 9:00 a.m. - 7:00 p.m. every Mon., Tue., Wed., Thu., Fri., Sat., Sun. until September 1

We don’t often see red­-tailed bumblebees in Houston, but at the exhibit "Extreme Bugs" not only will there be red­-tailed bumblebees, they’ll be 60 times as large as usual. In “Extreme Bugs,” a family exhibit that will spend the summer at the Houston Zoo, giant... More >>

The juror for this year’s “The Big Show” at Lawndale Art Center is Erin Elder, visual art director at the Center for Contemporary Arts in Santa Fe, New Mexico. The annual exhibit, started in 1984, features the works of local artists living within 100 miles of Houston. Elder... More >>

A. D. Players : 7:30 p.m. every Tue., Wed., Thu. until August 24; 8:00 p.m. every Fri., Sat. until August 24; 2:30 p.m. every Sun. until August 24

A.D. Players provides family-oriented theater that entertains, enlightens and inspires, so it’s natural for the company to present the New Testament musical Godspell. Director Kevin Dean reports: “Jesus saw his disciples for what they were: men under construction. The 2012 Godspell... More >>

“National Geographic’s Real Pirates”

Moody Gardens : 10:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. daily until September 28

To an entire generation, the word “pirate” brings to mind an effete but basically harmless Johnny Depp with historically inaccurate eyeliner acting like a drunk Keith Richards. The true scalawags of the seas were a bit more dangerous. The exhibit “National Geographic’s... More >>

“The Rural Family Funeral Home”

National Museum of Funeral History : 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. daily until September 25

The National Museum of Funeral History is way more fun than it gets credit for, and proves that in its newest exhibit, “The Rural Family Funeral Home.” After all, who isn’t at least sort of interested in what happens when they’re kickin’ up daisies? This exhibit... More >>

Big Ass Blues Jam

The Hideaway On Dunvale : 9:30 p.m. every Tue.; 9:30 p.m. July 22

We got to partake in the pleasure that is the Hideaway on Dunvale for steak night one Tuesday, and it included the magical blues stylings of Rick Lee & The Night Owls. Lee and his band do ZZ Top, Bobby "Blue" Bland and B.B. King covers. The Hideaway is a ways out of the Inner Loop, but don't... More >>
