The Best Concerts In Houston This Weekend: Red, Diana Krall, W&W, etc.

Red Warehouse Live, May 3

The latest Christian band to cross over into the "active rock" mainstream, Nashville quartet Red indeed takes its name from the blood of the Lamb, but not in an overly dogmatic way. In fact, their success among the heathens keeps right on growing, with fourth album Release the Panic debuting in the Billboard Top 10 earlier this year and publications like Revolver singing their praises.

Produced by Howard Benson (P.O.D., Daughtry), Red infuses enough kinetic energy into Panic to raise the album a cut or two above standard-issue radio-rock.
