Trae, Z-Ro
House of Blues, November 24

The original Assholes by Nature, cousins Trae and Z-Ro remain two of Houston's most durable rap heavyweights. A gruff but oddly mellow rhymesmith, Trae tha Truth has recovered from a gunshot wound suffered outside a southwest Houston cabaret in June, and this is first his first headlining show in town since the incident. One of Texas' most introspective and eloquent MCs of all time, Z-Ro is the self-styled "King of the Ghetto" and a must-follow on Twitter who last month emphatically put any retirement rumors to rest in a sharp-tongued new video, "This Ain't Livin."

Geoff Tate
Warehouse Live, November 24

Not-quite-shocking Queensryche fans all over the world, lead singer Geoff Tate exited that band this past spring after a month-long row with his bandmates that included shouting, punching, and spitting matches at even intervals. Tate's wife and daughter had been relieved of their managerial and fan-club duties, with turmoil lurking between band members as well. While the future of Queensryche's financial and recording life is debated in the courts, Tate has set out on his own with some new players behind him, playing all the Queensryche hits and new solo material.
