November is a time of year for people to come home. Houston musicians are no exception, and this month, we're lucky to see lots of our favorite local artists make the trek back to play for those who have missed them. We're glad to welcome back the Gulf Coast soul style of The Suffers (November 26, House of Blues) as well as the indie pop musings of Walker Lukens (November 26, Orange Show). The mixtape also features a can't-miss track from Craig Kinsey's latest album, Nylon Sessions (November 16, Continental Club).
But we get it: Sometimes, your family may make you want to forget you ever came from here at all. So we've got plenty of outsiders on the mixtape too, like Sia (November 4, Toyota Center), Lucius (November 10, Raven Tower) and Animal Collective (November 15, White Oak Music Hall). Tell Grandma you're really sorry, but you have to go to one of these great shows.
Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
