Live Music in Houston This August
With August comes the end of summer and the start of school again. Combat your end-of-summer blues by making the most of this month! There are tons of great shows around town - especially country artists and #throwbacks (read: Backstreet Boys!!!). Happy August to all!
Aug. 2: Carly Rae Jepson @ House of Blues
The singer behind "Call Me Maybe" is back and performing at a more intimate venue. Carly released an album this past May.
Aug. 3: Hammer's House Party @ Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion
Stop.... Hammer time! Hammer's House Party features performances from MC Hammer, Sir Mix-A-Lot, and more.
Aug. 8: Trace Adkins @ Smart Financial Centre
Country fans unite! Adkins is appearing with another country legend Clint Black. Terri Clark is the show's special guest.
Aug. 10: Cody Johnson @ Toyota Center
Cody Johnson, a native Texan, is BIG right now. Johnson put on a very successful Rodeo performance this past year, and his latest album debuted at #1 on the charts earlier this year.
Aug. 13: mewithoutYou @ White Oak Music Hall Downstairs
mewithoutYou is an indie-rock based out of Philadelphia. The band has been around since 2000 and has released various albums, EPs, and vinyls.
Aug. 14: Lyle Lovett @ Smart Financial Centre
Texas native Lyle Lovett is performing in Houston again! This time, he's performing with "His Large Band."
Aug. 17: Vampire Weekend @ White Oak Music Hall Lawn
I'm sure all the big Vampire Weekend fans already have tickets, but just in case you weren't aware... Vampire Weekend just released an album this past spring.
Aug. 22: Heart, Joan Jett, and Elle King @ Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion
I'm jealous of anyone going to this show. Heart and Joan Jett seem to go together more than Elle King, but I'm not complaining!
Aug. 23: TLC, Nelly, and Flo Rida @ Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion
This is an interesting mix of artists, but it sounds fun! Having never been to a rap or R&B-focused concert at Cynthia Woods, I'm intrigued to know what the crowd interaction at the show is like!
Aug. 24: The B-52s @ Smart Financial Centre
The B-52's are celebrating their 40th anniversary with a worldwide tour. Get in on the action - will this be their last tour? If you've been a fan for a while, don't miss out then regret it later!
Aug. 29: Rascal Flatts @ Smart Financial Centre
I hope you have your tickets already! If you're reading this now, get them quickly! Rascal Flatts performs with special guest Jimmie Allen.
Aug. 30: The Molly Ringwalds @ House of Blues
The Molly Ringwalds are an awesome '80s cover band. I have seen them many times throughout the years and they are ALWAYS fun.
Aug. 31: Backstreet Boys @ Toyota Center
Backstreet's back! For their biggest arena tour in 18 years!
