The Houston Press Mixtape: Pre-Meltdown Edition

The Houston Press Mixtape: Pre-Meltdown Edition
Katie Sullivan

It's May, the month when Houston dangles on the precipice of full-fledged Fahrenheit oblivion. We know our days of tolerable temperatures are numbered, so now is the time to get out and see some of the great artists who are coming through town. If you're looking for a blockbuster act, be sure to see the EDM star Major Lazer (May 4, Middlelands) or the R&B singer Kehlani (May 21, Warehouse Live). Prefer musicians that fly under the radar? Try seeing Mitski opener Helado Negro (May 9, Walter's Downtown) or Chicago hip-hop artist Nnamdi Ogbonnaya (May 13, Satellite Bar).

Don't forget to support Houston musicians, from heavy-metallers Broken Valor (May 6, Satellite Bar) to the quaint Americana of Ancient Cat Society (May 27, Heights Theater). You can also celebrate the release of Genesis Blu's latest album, Bluming Season, this week (May 5, Rockefellers).

If you want to see your band on the mixtape, give us a shout — we always want to boost the signal of local artists.
