The 10 Best Concerts In Houston This Weekend: Schoolboy Q, Adnan Sami, Jewel Brown, etc.

UH Frontier Fiesta TDECU Stadium (University of Houston), March 27-28

Known as "The Cage," TDECU Stadium is still just getting started as the home of the fightin' Houston Cougar football team, but UH's annual spring carnival (which turns 75 years old this year) is the field's first real opportunity to test its sea legs as a concert venue; the shows are completely free thanks to UH student fees. After Sugarland's Kristian Bush started things off Thursday, Friday saucy UK pop-rap starlet Cher Lloyd ("Want U Back") makes her claim on some of that Iggy/Charli XCX market share, and rising young L.A. rapper Schoolboy Q's 2014 album Oxymoron will provide plenty of jams for a raucous Saturday-night finale. Go Coogs!
