Live Music and Special Events in Houston This January
As expected for the month after the holiday season, January is pretty empty in terms of concerts. That doesn’t mean there aren’t great shows happening, though! This month, I added a few more non-concert events that you might still find interesting.
Dec. 31/Jan. 1: Check out my NYE article for things to do, including concerts around the city!

This '80s cover band is so fun. If you want to dance and sing, this is a great show for all ages.
Katy’s new album might’ve been a flop, but she still puts on an involved show. Carly Rae Jepson will be a good addition and a fun opening act.
Jan. 12: Milky Chance @ House of Blues
Milky Chance played at ACL in 2017 and put on a wonderful live show, so this is definitely worth checking out.
Jan. 12-15: Houston Tango Marathon

Loretta Lynn is a household name if you like country music. She has been singing for over 60 years, and is an absolute legend, especially if you like country music. This show was rescheduled from its original date of Aug. 4, 2017.
Jan. 24: Marilyn Manson @ House of Blues
Creepy yet entertaining. You’ll probably know if this is your cup of tea or not.
Jan. 26: Shakira @ Toyota Center
Shakira ALWAYS brings it. If you’re lucky enough to score tickets to this one, I am so jealous.
Jan. 26: Joe Ely @ The Heights Theatre
Joe Ely again! A huge favorite of mine. Catch him this month at the Heights Theatre.
