The Best Concerts In Houston This Weekend: Hickoids, Fat Tony, Houston Global Jam, etc.

Houston Global Jam
Rodeo San Miguel Arena (13700 Karalis Rd.), August 25

If you're looking for reggae jams and a bit of Rasta culture, well, you're in luck. Not only will Shaggy, purveyor of everything "Boombastic," be at the Houston Global Jam to hook you up with those sweet Jamaican beats, but so will Kingston native Beenie Man, who (in case you need to see credentials) is the self-proclaimed "King of Dancehall."

Among the slew of other artists also scheduled to take part in the festivities (Marcia Griffiths, Cocoa Tea, Barrington Levy), local boss hoggs Slim Thug and Z-Ro should add a heavy dose of Screwston, Texas flavor. Gates open at 10 a.m.; see for information. ANGELICA LEICHT
