The Five Best Concerts in Houston This Week: Lauryn Hill, Andrea Bocelli, RL Grime, etc.

Ms. Lauryn Hill House of Blues, December 9

One of the biggest question marks coming into this past Free Press Summer Fest, Ms. Lauryn Hill emerged instead as one of the weekend's biggest surprises with a Sunday-afternoon set many fans said was one of the weekend's best. The ex-Fugee and multiple Grammy winner's 1998 masterpiece The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill remains a hip-hop/pop/R&B lifestyle manual for loads of young women, and although she's lost a little of her loose-cannon live reputation, it's safe to say Hill will never be accused of being boring onstage, either.
