The Best Concerts In Houston This Weekend: Jeezy, CCA Conservation Concert, etc.
Continental Club, May 18
This Texas-based quartet is known for delivering a hefty serving of Southern rock infused with a smattering of funk, bluegrass, jazz and pop. Along the way, their largely improvised live shows create an arty, adventurous sound led by Graham Guest's anthemic folk-rock vocals.
Part Allman Brothers, part Southern-fried Jerry Garcia, that style that has led to a loyal fan base and gigs with the likes of Willie Nelson, Steve Miller Band and Los Lobos. These guys have perfected the art of the intellectual jam band. ANGELICA LEICHT
