Discovery Green Conservancy : 6:00 p.m. - 10:00 p.m. November 25

The irony’s not lost on Alexandre Hamel that Le Patin Libre, the ice-skating group he founded, is making its American debut in Houston. “We’re doing ice skating in Texas?” he laughs. “We’re going so far south…you wouldn’t think about ice skating... More >>

Slade Ham

The Joke Joint Comedy Showcase : 8:00 p.m. November 26

Comedian Slade Ham has a complicated relationship with hecklers. He hates that they interrupt his stand-up act; he loves shutting them up when they do.

Bobby Shmurda

Warehouse Live : 7:30 p.m. November 23

Walk into just about any nightclub with a dress code these days and it probably won’t be long before you’ll see the crowd turn around, raise their arms over their heads and start swaying like a stiff breeze just blew through the room. They’re doing “The Shmoney,”... More >>

East End Music

Leon Russell

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

Though he's not quite a household name, Leon Russell's gospel-soaked style has infiltrated so much rock and pop of the past 40 years it's practically a genre of its own. The Lawton, Oklahoma native has been a go-to keyboardist, songwriter and partner in crime for almost too many stars to count... More >>

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 >>

Downtown/ Midtown Music

Jackson Taylor & the Sinners

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

Jackson Taylor & the Sinners’ songs are full of drinkin’, cussin’, fightin’, smokin’ and associating with ladies of ill repute — you know, the good stuff. The Wichita, Kansas, group wears their allegiance to outlaw heroes like Waylon, Shaver and Social... More >>

Jimmy Lafave

McGonigel's Mucky Duck : 7:00 p.m. November 28

After all the nights without power, the gas lines and the ice shortages, Jimmy LaFave is a perfect musical palliative. One of the smoothest vocalists around, LaFave can make listeners happy singing even the saddest of ballads. LaFave, a former drummer, works both sides of the musical street,... More >>

Dwight Yoakam

Arena Theatre : 9:00 p.m. November 28

Dwight Yoakam has spent a good bit of this fall as the main support act on Eric Church’s “The Outsiders” U.S. tour, which continues into January. At least for now, the tour is bypassing Houston (what else is new), but it’s good to see Dwight in front of arena-size crowds... More >>

Reverend Horton Heat

Scout Bar : 7:00 p.m. November 29

Sub Pop Records’ two main Southwestern standard-bearers throughout the ’90s, the Supersuckers and Reverend Horton Heat blazed a trail of hellfire and brimstone through the grunge years that audiences in these parts lapped up like whiskey in a drought. Between Supersuckers shaman... More >>

James McMurtry

McGonigel's Mucky Duck : 9:30 p.m. November 29

Night Ranger

Concert Pub (North) : 7:30 p.m. November 30

Night Ranger may be forever linked with the “bathrobe” scene in Boogie Nights, but there’s a lot more to recommend them than just “Sister Christian.” For a time the San Francisco rockers gave Journey a run for their money as the Bay Area’s biggest-selling... More >>

Jersey Village Music


Warehouse Live : 7:00 p.m. December 2

The most natural heir to Curtis Mayfield’s legacy of socially conscious and intrinsically soulful Chicago music (sorry, Kanye), Common doubles down on this year’s Nobody’s Smiling, tackling his hometown’s record-setting epidemic of gun violence head-on. That’s not... More >>

East End Music

Melissa Etheridge

Bayou Music Center : 8:00 p.m. December 2

Even before Melissa Etheridge was one of the first mainstream musicians to come out as a lesbian, she was one of the few female rockers to register at all in the ’80s. Her 1988 hit single “Bring Me Some Water” eventually paved the way for the likes of Sheryl Crow, Shawn Colvin... More >>

Downtown/ Midtown Music

Ryan Adams

Bayou Music Center : 7:00 p.m. December 3

Ryan Adams is a rock and roll sponge, possibly a Britpop savant, Gram Parsons acolyte or Grateful Dead noodler depending on what mood he’s in. However, he will have turned 40 by this visit to Houston, and no longer deserves to be defined by such aesthetic hair-splitting. His latest album... More >>

“Urban Asia: Kirk Pedersen”

Asia Society Texas Center : 11:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. every Tue., Wed., Thu., Fri., Sat., Sun. until January 4

Lambert Hall Performing Arts Center : 2:00 p.m. November 23

Mezzo-soprano Claudia Chapa is enjoying her role as the Witch in Hänsel und Gretel, currently being produced by Opera in the Heights. The Witch is a sinister, evil character (she eats children, after all), but the role allows Chapa to explore the darker side of her personality and to... More >>

The Liar

University of Houston : 2:00 p.m. every Sun. until November 23

Nobody can do farce like the French — that has been evident for centuries. Playwright David Ives, author of the runaway hit Venus in Fur, has reached back to The Liar, a play by Pierre Corneille first performed in 1644, and added a fresh translation and adaptation. The University of... More >>
