Live Music in Houston This March
It’s rodeo season y’all! Some of the best performers in the world are here in our town this month, so who cares about anything else? Check out some of the amazing artists and celebrate living in one of the best music cities in the country!
Mar. 1: Cardi B @ Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo
Cardi B, arguably the top female rapper in the world right now, is starting off March at the Rodeo. It will be really interesting to see how Cardi moves around NRG - I predict a show with lots of movement and surprises.
Mar. 1: Mariah Carey @ Smart Financial Centre
The diva herself… Mariah’s vocals will sound great at Smart Financial with its acoustics.
Mar. 2: Houston Roller Derby @ Revention Music Center
The Houston Roller Derby features two 30-minute periods of roller derby. Not a concert, but still an interesting event in town!
Mar. 3: Panic! At the Disco @ HLSR
Get angsty with Panic! At the Disco. Every year, the rodeo has at least one rock-type band, so fill your quota for angsty rock at the Rodeo on the 3rd!
Mar. 5: Camila Cabello @ HLSR
No doubt you have been singing “Havana” in your sleep. Now see it performed live at the Rodeo!
Mar. 11: Zac Brown Band @ HLSR
Zac Brown Band are also Rodeo veterans. Their fun songs include “Chicken Fried,” “Knee Deep” and “Toes.”
Mar. 12: Kings of Leon @ HLSR
You know Kings of Leon from their big hit a while back called “Use Somebody.”
Mar. 13: Santana @ HLSR
If you’re going, I’ll see you there! Santana is a Latin rock artist who has been around for years. I have seen him in concert before, and he puts on a great show. I can’t wait to hear him in a huge venue like NRG!
Mar. 14: Ice Cube @ House of Blues
Ice Cube, who I saw at ACL two years ago, is a fun performer with tons of energy. Whether you like his music or his acting on Law & Order SVU, you should check it out!
Mar. 17: George Strait @ HLSR
George Strait, who keeps threatening to retire (but won’t!), is a Texas AND Rodeo legend. This year, he’s bringing along Lyle Lovett and Robert Earl Keen to play with him.
Mar. 19: P!nk @ Toyota Center
This is P!nk’s third Houston show - this time, she’s here for her Beautiful Trauma World Tour.
Mar. 21: Queensryche @ House of Blues
I’ve seen Queensryche before at HOB Houston, and they put on a really fun show. Definitely a little harder rock than the classic rock I’m used to, but you’ll definitely recognize the song “Jet City Woman.”
Mar. 26-27: Ali Wong: The Milk & Money Tour @ Revention Music Center
Ali Wong is an awesome comedian with two specials on Netflix. She is known particularly for her hilarious pregnancy jokes. Luckily, she’s playing two nights, so you have double the chances to see her in Houston!
Mar. 29: Houston Blues Festival @ NRG
By the 29th, the Rodeo will be over, but the fun at NRG continues! This is the 13th annual blues festival, featuring TK Soul, Tucka, Lenny Williams and others.
Mar. 29: Texas A&M Singing Cadets @ South Main Baptist Church
The Singing Corp of Cadets are A&M’s traveling men’s choir, known nationwide for their wonderful choral abilities. Tickets are cheap! Read more about them here.
Mar. 30: The Beach Boys @ Smart Financial Centre
The original Beach Boys (sans Brian Wilson….) are coming to Houston to play all their hits. Also missing are original members Al Jardine and David Marks.
Mar. 30: Hozier @ Revention Music Center
A few summer ago, you couldn’t go anywhere without hearing Hozier’s “Take Me to Church.” He has released new music since then and continues to tour all across the globe.
