Mike Epps

Toyota Center : 8:00 p.m. April 18

Standup comedians always want to play “the big room.” Well, there are few rooms bigger than the Toyota Center, where Mike Epps (who also moonlights as an actor and rapper) is performing his singular brand of raw-edged observational humor. Well-known for his... More >>

Houston PBS Community Cinema: Medora

Houston Public Library - Central Library : 6:00 p.m. April 23

Stories about small-town sports teams that face incredible odds are Hollywood staples (think Remember the Titans and Hoosiers), but there’s no script in the sports documentary Medora. The film follows a luckless Indiana high school basketball team. After losing all 22 of its games the... More >>

Really, Really

Freneticore Theater : 8:00 p.m. every Thu., Fri., Sat. until May 4; 8:00 p.m. April 21

Paul Downs Colaizzo’s Really Really has been called the Lord of the Flies for the millennial generation. The comparison might not be strong enough. Really Really seems a much more blistering indictment of society, perhaps because the circumstances are so familiar. Set at an ivy league... More >>

Fresh Arts : 10:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. every Mon., Tue., Wed., Thu., Fri. until May 30

IFC Slightly Off Cinema Salute to Best Buds: Jesus Christ Superstar

Alamo Drafthouse - Vintage Park : 6:00 p.m. April 20; 7:30 p.m. April 23

Norman Jewison’s 1973 film Jesus Christ Superstar was controversial from the very start. To begin with, Jesus was played by Texas-born rocker Ted Neeley, who didn’t have anything close to the angelic voice that might be expected of JC. Neeley screeched, rasped and squealed his way... More >>

The Wheel Workers

Fitzgerald's : 8:00 p.m. April 18

If there's anything approaching a "scene" in Houston at the moment, it's the sincere yet fun-loving cluster of folk-rock/Americana groups spurred by Buxton and Folk Family Revival and (already!) reaching a second generation. One of those bands, The Wheel Workers, mix in a little bit more... More >>

Uncle Lucius

Warehouse Live : 8:00 p.m. April 19

For some inexplicable reason, Uncle Lucius tends to get lumped into the yee-haw "Texas Music" crowd, when their thoughtful, square-jawed rock and roll is much closer to Austin neighbor Bob Schneider than anything boasting either a cowboy hat or a steel guitar. Indeed, the quartet's 2012 album,... More >>

Juicy J

Warehouse Live : 9:00 p.m. April 19

Katy Perry's recent radio hit "Dark Horse" may be the first time that the tween set has heard the name Juicy J, but he's old hat for hip-hop fans. Well before the Memphis native was spitting rhymes on pop songs, he was stayin' fly and sippin' syrup as a founding member of Three 6 Mafia. His... More >>

Spain Colored Orange

Continental Club : 10:00 p.m. April 19

Usually when a band resurfaces after a long layoff, they've been working up new tunes or more personal matters are afoot. We know the latter is the case for Spain Colored Orange, whose pianist/vocalist, Gilbert Alfaro, is a relatively recent husband and dad (congrats), so we hope the... More >>

Augustana

Fitzgerald's : 7:00 p.m. April 22

The end of Chris Carrabba’s Dashboard Confessional era was a sad time for many fans, most of whom had become familiar with him through his emo anthems like “Screaming Infidelities” and “Hands Down.” His style became an MTV staple, which led to a decade of emotional... More >>

HAIM

House of Blues : 8:00 p.m. April 22

Since their charming debut album, Days Are Gone, dropped last September, equally charming L.A. sisters Este, Danielle and Alana Haim have enjoyed the kind of critical praise normally lavished on the latest Brooklyn indie-rockers. But Days is a pop record through and through, boasting at least a... More >>

Bastille

House of Blues : 8:00 p.m. April 23

As much a phenomenon as a rock band, Bastille have become the hottest group on the planet in the space of about six months. Dan Smith’s south London crew took over that spot from Imagine Dragons, with whom their supersized synth-rock sound shares more than a few similarities.... More >>
