While doing our usual hunt for interesting acts coming to Houston in the next few weeks, Lonesome Onry and Mean came across some great stuff coming to

Continental Club

and

McGonigel's Mucky Duck

. The brainy, always quirky

Jonathan Richman

will be at the Continental Saturday, January 29. An origianl member of proto-punks Modern Lovers, Richman just keeps coming up with compelling social commentary delivered with massive tongue-in-cheek. And he's just plain entertaining.

The Duck has a very solid January calendar, beginning with two sets from

Charlie Robison

on the 13th.

Darden Smith

and

Dan Navarro

share the stage on Jan. 14, and the versatile

Ian Moore

plays his Beatles-y rock on the 16th.

The last two weeks of January find a plethora of high-grade, rocking acts coming in for what purports to be a listening room:

Willie Porter

(Jan. 21);

Scott Miller

(Jan. 22, a Friday, so most likely young Miller will have his full band in tow); The Wylie Lama,

Ray Wylie Hubbard

himself (Jan. 23), will be touring behind his new album

A. Enlightenment, B. Endarkenment, (Hint: There Is No C)

. The following week is just as stout, with Canadian songmeister

Fred Eaglesmith

(Jan. 28); Austin pop-rocker

Randy Weeks

(Jan. 29), and bluesman

Doyle Bramhall Sr.

, who only comes to town about every other year in for two shows (Jan. 30).

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.
