The Five Best Concerts In Houston This Week: Aerosmith, Buxton, Charlie Robison, etc.

Charlie Robison
Main Street Crossing, August 27

Little brother of top Austin tunesmith Bruce Robison, Charlie Robison is no slouch in the songwriting department himself, with the kind of attitude that earned him the longstanding nickname "bad boy of Bandera." That was when he was still playing Music Row's major-label game (somewhat), convincing Sony to release the excellent albums Life of the Party and Step Right Up around the turn of the millennium. Since then he's lost the label, married and divorced a Dixie Chick, grown his hair out and endeared himself to Texas audiences time and again with his maverick ways. Last year he returned with High Life, which finds Robison covering simpatico artists like Bob Dylan, The Band, Kinky Friedman and Sir Douglas Sahm. CHRIS GRAY

The Mighty Orq
Dan Electro's Guitar Bar, August 28

As dependable a performer as you could ask for, The Mighty Orq is usually not hard to find, averaging two or three gigs a week when he's not out of town. A multiple Houston Press Music Award winner for both his guitar talents and his blues mojo, last summer Orq released a new album, Soulful City, a love letter to both Houston's rich blues legacy and the steely Resonator guitar with which he crafted it.
