Joshua Bell

Jones Hall For the Performing Arts : 8:00 p.m. November 5

Go ahead and clap between movements if you want to. Violinist Joshua Bell says he doesn’t mind. Of course, this is a guy who has twice played in Washington D.C.’s Union Station, so he’s not your usual classical music purist. (The first time he played in Union Station was in... More >>

DJ Sun isn't hard to find. He has a residency most evenings out of the week, either solo or with the crew from his long-running Saturday-night KPFT show Soular Grooves.

Julian Casablancas & the Voidz

House of Blues : 8:00 p.m. October 31

The Strokes seem content to collect big-festival paychecks and little else these days, leaving Julian Casablancas et al. seeking their musical thrills elsewhere. And while there’s still plenty of his parent band’s sleek garage-rock in Casablancas’s latest offshoot, the Voidz,... More >>

The English Beat

Scout Bar : 7:00 p.m. November 1

2-tone deserved better. Otherwise known as the second wave of ska — the first being the ­reggae-tinged '60s Jamaican scene that produced the Wailers, the third the rock-tinged form that ruled the mid-'90s — this late-'70s strain originated from an English label whose roster... More >>

Matt the Electrician

Anderson Fair Retail Restaurant : 9:00 p.m. November 1

Austin's Matt the Electrician (Matthew Sower to his family and friends) is one of a handful of brainy, somewhat quiet Central Texas singer-songwriters who write with considerable plainfolks wit, down-to-earth blue-collar common sense and smart-folks ideas. What emerges are songs like "Change... More >>

The Psychedelic Furs

House of Blues : 7:00 p.m. November 2

The Psychedelic Furs are a study in retroactive popularity. They toiled in the punk and new wave underground for years before finding success as the inspiration for a John Hughes movie in 1986.

Single Mothers

Walter's Downtown : 8:00 p.m. November 5

Vote first, please, but if you’re looking to release some Election-Day frustration — no matter your side of the political aisle — head over to Walters for a stiff dose of Single Mothers’ eardrum-assaulting nihilism. Carrying on the sneering tradition of Northern... More >>

Death from Above 1979

Warehouse Live : 8:00 p.m. November 6
