April means Buzzfest in Houston….sooo since we won’t be there, we need other shows to see! Here are 10 shows we want to see in Houston in April.
April 1st – Dr. Dog @ House Of Blues
This suburban Philly band got it’s start in the early 2000’s with a sound that is derived from 60s standards such as the Beach Boys, while never sounding derivative. Needless to say, they are great. See them, now!
April 4th – Bob Schneider @ House Of Blues
Bob Schneider might not be a national super star, but good luck getting tickets to his shows in Austin. Good news for you is that he is playing in Houston in April!
April 10th – The Punch Brothers @ House Of Blues
The Punch Brothers are a bluegrass super group created by Chris Thile of Nickel Creek (and from being the best mandolin player in the world). If you think you know bluegrass, think again and then see this show!
April 11th – thelastplaceyoulook @ Scout Bar
Need a crash-course on the Houston Music Scene? “thelastplaceyoulook” is just what you need! The Houston band has been a fixture in the scene over the last few years and put on a great live show. Check them out!
April 12th – Cake @ House Of Blues
You might remember Cake from the 90s…and your memory wouldn’t be wrong. But they are far more than their smash single “Short Skirt/Long Jacket”. Check out the weirdness on April 12th!
April 14th – Sean Watkins @ Mucky Duck
You might better know Sean from his bluegrass band, Nickel Creek. But since their split, he has cultivated a successful solo career. And there is no better place to see him than the Mucky Duck. Here he is playing with his sister, Sara Watkins.
April 17th – OK Go @ Warehouse Live
The band with the best music videos on earth, also puts on an incredible live show. OK Go might have received their fame for their original and brilliant music videos, but their funk and rock fusion music is brilliant and fun! Don’t miss this show.
April 23rd – Wilco @ Bayou Music Center
Where would modern indie music be without Wilco and their perfect album “Yankee Hotel Foxtrot”? No one knows nor wants to know! This April, cross this show off your bucket list!
April 25th – Matt and Kim @ House of Blues
Matt and Kim got huge and then the “Hipster-gods” decided they were out. Don’t listen to them! Matt and Kim are a live show not to be missed. Come prepared to dance and shout. See you there!
Every Thursday In April – Beetle (Beatles Cover Band) @ The Continental Club
A Houston tradition. Celebrate the boys from Liverpool with this FREE show at the Continental Club every Thursday. You won’t regret it!
