Debonair Lounge
Cafe 4212, January 27

For the past few months, the only way to get each week off on a good foot has been at this Museum District oasis of cool. Debonair Lounge has already welcomed a who's who of Houston's hottest young hip-hop and R&B performers -- backed as always by that smooth-ass Debonair house band -- strutting their stuff for one of the most stylish audiences in town.

Hosted by local scenesters Tay Mitch and Brad Gilmore, whom Channel 39's Newsfix called "ebony and ivory at its finest," these few hours will have you looking forward to every Monday... just not Tuesdays. The party never stops on Instagram at @DebonairLoungeHTX, too. CHRIS GRAY

DJ Sun
The Flat, February 24

On last year's One Hundred -- amazingly, his first-ever full-length release -- DJ Sun pours his 20-plus-year career as one of Houston's most in-demand DJs into a seamless work that never lulls, never lags and maintains an unshakably mellow groove throughout. Its intricately laid-back latticework should come as no surprise to anyone lucky enough to have met the man and easily made it one of 2013's standout Houston albums.

Among his multitude of weekly gigs, Sun's long-running "Rocksteady Mondays" residency at the Flat, where he is now managing partner, is probably the most chill environment to glimpse this true turntable craftsman at work. CHRIS GRAY


Bayou City Good Old Boys
Continental Club, February 25

Early rock and roll, rockabilly and boogie-woogie may have all but disappeared from non-satellite radio, but the sounds of yesteryear are alive and swingin' Tuesday nights at the Continental, as played by a group of youngsters who couldn't have been born before the Reagan administration.

But for the past several months, first at Mango's and now on Mid-Main, the Bayou City Good Old Boys have been bringing the sounds of Jerry Lee Lewis, Richie Valens and the pre-Sgt. Pepper Beatles to a crowd that would otherwise only recognize "Fat Elvis" as ex-Astro Lance Berkman's old nickname. Attendance has been steadily picking up, helped no doubt by no cover charge, but do the Boys a favor and slip them a well-deserved fiver or two. With the Broken Spokes. CHRIS GRAY
