June in Houston means Free Press Summer Fest, which is featuring some amazing performers this year. But if you are like us and prefer to avoid scorching heat and thousands of high schoolers, you might want to check out some of these other amazing shows coming to Houston this June.
The Paul Ramirez Band is a Houston-music icon. The band plays every Wednesday at the Continental Club so if you miss them tomorrow, don’t worry yourself! Their mellow, laid back blues-rock stylings are fun, groovy, and downright impressive. But don’t full yourself, when they want too, the band can bring it with heavy, even psychedelic, guitar mastery. Don’t miss them at Continental Club.
This show is definitely NOT family friendly, but for all of you children of the 90s out there, this show is sure to conjure up some serious early hip-hop nostalgia. So grab a boombox and head out for a day of old school hip hop!
Rhett Miller is a singer-songwriter best known for his band “The Old 97s” and from appearances in the show Scrubs. And there will never be a better place to see him than at the legendary Mucky Duck. Enjoy is beautiful melodies and impressive voice on June 13th.
June must be the month of 90s legends and we love it! The Gin Blossoms personified the term “post-grunge” and became a household name in the early and mid 90s. Their angsty yet catchy hits rose the charts and the band gained international fame. While members have come and gone, the band is still touring and still puts on an amazing show! Don’t miss out.
Jon Bellion is a new age of songwriter and rapper. Flawlessly blending dance music, electronica, acoustic instruments, and hip-hop, Jon Bellion is like nothing you have ever seen and is a show we can’t wait to see! He will be at Warehouse Live on June 14th.
It’s pretty safe to believe that we ALL went through a Ben Fold’s phase. And if you didn’t, what are you waiting for!? Ben Fold’s melodic piano riffs, humorous yet powerful lyrics, and compositional magic make for fun and beautiful music! So come out and see him, and remember what all the fuss was about.
Many of you may remember D’Angelo from the early 2000s and his sultry brand of R&B and music videos but most don’t realize he just released a new album that is a bonafide R&B game-changer. His new album, Black Messiah, is contemplative and soulful, groovy and experimental, and one of the best albums of the past year. So don’t miss him at Warehouse Live for a once in a lifetime experience.
If you can’t tell, we love the classics here and they don’t get much more classic than The Isley Brothers. The R&B Trio originally found fame in the 1960s with hits such as “Twist and Shout” and “This Old Heart of Mine (Is Weak For You)”, but their career hasn’t ended, with a major single released as recently as 2001. This is a bucket-list show for any true music fan. See you there!
Say Anything might not be for everyone but this unabashed emo-punk band with a flair for the theatrical redefined an entire genre. They are fun, inventive, and penned one of the only songs about a WW2 concentration camp that can be described as romantic (about Max’s, the lead singer, grandparents. Shown below). This show is definitely not family friendly but assured to be a great time. So grow out your bangs and we’ll see you there!
What can we say about Garth Brooks that hasn’t been said before, the man is a legend. And now that he has “unretired”, Garth is back on the road, bringing his brand of country music to the masses once again. We personally feel that hearing “Friends In Low Places” live is a religious experience that every music lover should have. Good news for you is that Garth will be in Houston later this month.
