Lonesome Onry and Mean: Looking Ahead to Jonathan Richman, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Scott Miller and Lots More

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


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


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).
