If the Rodeo's concert lineup isn't your speed, then buckle up for these alternative favorites playing in the Bayou City this weekend.

The Wild Reeds

This talented trio will spin stunning harmonies in Houston just one month shy of the release of their much-anticipated new record, The World We Built. 

Friday, March 10 at 7. From $10. The Raven Tower, 310 North St. 832-925-7585. whiteoakmusichall.com


Known for collaborating with Kendrick Lamar, Flying Lotus, Vic Mensa and Ty Dolla Sign, the 32-year-old bassist is riding the success of his third studio record, Drunk (February 2017), becoming a household name in his own right.

Saturday, March 11 at 8:30. From $25. Warehouse Live, 813 St. Emanuel St. 713-225-5483. warehouselive.com

Rainbow Kitten Surprise

Once you get past their crazy name, you’ll find an indie band that’s primed to be the next big thing thanks to hits “Devil Like Me” and “Seven.” Often compared to indie-rock powerhouses Modest Mouse and Kings of Leon, catch these rising stars before they start selling out arenas.

Saturday, March 11 at 8 p.m. From $12. The Secret Group, 2101 Polk St. 832-898-4688. thesecretgrouphtx.com

KT Tunstall

Cap off your weekend with the Scottish singer and songwriter known for her 2004 radio hit “Black Horse and the Cherry Tree.” Her 2016 album KIN adds a whole bevy of new hits to her already-decorated catalog, which is sure to sparkle in the historic Heights Theater.

Sunday, March 12 at 8. From $35. The Heights Theater, 339 W. 19th St. 214-272-8346. theheightstheater.com
