Josh Abbott Band: Newly signed to Atlantic, the Idalou-raised Texas Country stud has a soft spot for fellow South Plains oddballs like Terry Allen. Lots of crazy stuff in HOB's other rooms, too -- disco, drag queens, Thunderpants, etc. See hob.com for details. (House of Blues, 7 p.m.)

Mike Stinson: Houston's best songwriter spins his country yarns of tenacity and deceit in the local venue that perhaps best suits his gift. (McGonigel's Mucky Duck, 7 & 9 p.m.; second show is SRO)

10 Solid Music Picks for Houston's New Year's Eve

BLSHS: Synth-pop rookies of the year host a FREE masquerade ball -- "masks encouraged, dancing required." Teeel, New York City Queens, Yung Slutty and Children of Pop bring extra swag. (Fitzgerald's, 8 p.m.)

New Year's Noize 2015: NOLA's Piss Pillow and Bama's Bag o'Forks join H-town's Clockpole, the Annoysters, and Black Magic Marker for a whole lotta mayhem. (Super Happy Fun Land, 8 p.m.)

Upcoming Events

Blue October: Homegrown alt-rock heroes still touring behind last year's upbeat seventh LP Sway. (Bayou Music Center, 8 p.m.)

#letgo2014: Looking to get weird this NYE? Look no further than this electro-psych-blues-lounge acid trip sponsored by Josiah Gabriel, Space Villains*, NIKKHOO, Kosé, Pitter Patter, and three H-town breweries. Tasty! (Black Barbie, 8 p.m.)

GRITSNYE: Nothing says "2015" more than a buttload of filthy bass, brought to you by the fine folks over at Gritsy and starring Alfred, Banxx, Baud Optics, Conrad and many more. (Eastdown Warehouse, 9 p.m.)

Soul Celebration: Local funkateers the Journey Agents and DJ Tempty help you get 2015 off on the good foot. (MKT Bar, 9 p.m.)

10 Solid Music Picks for Houston's New Year's Eve
