Bun "Future Houston Mayor?" B
Bun B, Trae Tha Truth
Baybrook Mall (1355 W. Bay Area Blvd.), June 14

These days Bun B is a multitasking pillar of the community, one of the area's most beloved public figures: to say nothing of his high social-media profile,. Lately he's been helping Houston Mayor Annise Parker battle texting while driving, appearing regularly on Channel 39's NewsFix, and now launching his own food blog, You Gotta Eat This!. The one thing Bun hasn't done a whole lot lately, it seems, is pick up a microphone and bust out a rhyme or two.

He did show up during Macklemore & Ryan Lewis' set at the recent Free Press Summer Fest, but Friday Bun will have an hour all to himself. True, it's at Baybrook Mall and looks to be as much a skateboarding exhibition/competition as much as a concert - part of the "Couch Tour" sponsored by skate-gear outfitter Zumiez -- but hey, it's still the king of the trill, live onstage. Also scheduled to perform is Trae Tha Truth, the ABN kingpin who recently drew a Best Song nomination in this year's 2013 Houston Press Music Awards for his track "Screwed Up." CHRIS GRAY

Scooter Brown Band
Cypress Saloon, June 14

Born out of a love for country music and a lone guitar, the Scooter Brown Band has grown from a couple of Texas boys on a Marine tour in Iraq, pickin' away to pass the time in the barracks, into a full-fledged staple on the Texas music scene. Texas country with a bit of an edge, Scott Brown and his bandmates gracefully infuse that gritty red-dirt country sound with a rock edge, a synergy that keeps their fans coming back for more.

House of Blues, June 15

What do you get when you combine Spanish lyrics, British New Wave, prog-rock and a whole lot of Latin percussion? Caifanes, that's what. The Mexico City natives were influential players in the late-'80s Latin-rock scene, and at the height of their popularity were compared to post-punk gods like the Cure and Jesus and Mary Chain.

They've only recently reconciled from a mid-'90s breakup, and have hit the touring scene once again with their full original lineup to relive the days when they opened up for the Rolling Stones and Peter Gabriel. ANGELICA LEICHT
