San Antonio is justifiably famous for its rabid metal fan base and contributions to conjunto music, but it also may be Texas' No. 1 garage-rock city. For more than two decades now, Frank Pugilese -- a S.A. scenester from way back who once opened for the Sex Pistols at Randy's Rodeo -- and his merry men have been sneering out their Stoogey brand of electric-guitar mayhem, with more emphasis on swagger than style points. Their latest full-length, this year's A Different Kind of Ugly, doesn't fix what isn't broken. CHRIS GRAY

House of Blues, October 28
French electro duo Justice rarely tours this part of the States, usually opting to stay on the two coasts and haunt major music festivals. This is Houston's first-ever chance to see the pair, who first came above ground with 2007's Cross, a torridly catchy disc full of ubiquitous singles like "DVNO" and "D.A.N.C.E." that helped kids on this side of the pond warm to electronic music all over again. The band's latest, the year-old Audio, Video, Disco., showed off their newfound prog-rockin' side. CRAIG HLAVATY
