Nick Greer & the G's
The Corkscrew, December 26
Nick Greer & the Gs are a musical force to be reckoned with, intent on forging their way to the top of the Houston music scene. At the Houston Press Music Awards showcase in August, they got the crowd dancing, snapping their fingers and crooning along to their infectious melodies. Sporting green suspenders and striped pants, Greer kept to his keyboard and microphone while the Gs behind him danced in unison.
"We are here to intimidate and inspire change," Greer said of his band back in June. If they keep performing that way, the G's already well on the way to accomplishing both. MATTHEW KEEVER
Luther & the Healers
The Local Pour (1952 W. Gray), December 26
If you're not privy to Houston blues staples Luther & the Healers, it's about time you were. They're mainstays around here for a reason, namely soulful vocals; howling guitar licks; and a thick, steady bass groove. Experts at their craft, the Healers incorporate the sounds of blues hotspots like Memphis or Chicago with ease. Their faithful crowd is rarely seated, but prefers dancing around to King Floyd covers and flirting with the band. ANGELICA LEICHT
