If you couldn't get Garth tickets for Sunday, Brad Paisley is a surefire second choice.

Trap Karaoke

March 16 | Warehouse Live

People describe this "user-generated concert" as a church-like experience, so be prepared to testify as Trap Karaoke rolls into Warehouse Live once more. Expect 1,200 sweaty, undulating bodies bowing in approval as some undiscovered audience member steps up and unleashes a Cardi-quality rendition of "Bodak Yellow."

Tickets from $30. Warehouse Live, 813 Saint Emmanuel St. More info and tickets at

Un-Cross Talk: Jazz and Bluegrass Slip 'N Slide Together

March 16 and 17 | MATCH

With a unique sound forged in Houston's Third Ward, Jacqui Sutton and her Frontier Jazz Orchestra juxtapose urban jazz with rural bluegrass to create something altogether new. Head to the MATCH and check out her two-night sound and video experience that's a window into the history of the music and the "head space" of Sutton's creative vision.

Tickets $20. MATCH, 3400 Main St. 713-521-4533. More info and tickets at

Patty'O Party on White Oak

March 17 | White Oak Drive

This Karbach-sponsored crawl welcomes a green wave of humanity as it flows across five White Oak bars. Special coins earn participants a prize, and a leprechaun costume contest will award a Pot O'Gold to one lucky winner. We compiled other St. Patrick's Day best bets here.

More info via Facebook.

Brad Paisley

March 17 | NRG Stadium

Sing a "Whiskey Lullaby" to the 2018 rodeo season with the penultimate performance of this year's concert lineup (Garth Brook wraps things up Sunday with another sold-out performance). With more than a dozen rodeo performances under his belt, we're sure Paisley's big-hearted songs won't disappoint.

Tickets from $16. NRG Stadium. More info and tickets at

Tour de Houston

March 18 | City Hall

Broken into 20, 40, or 60-mile routes, the 13th annual Tour de Houston invites bikers to wind through downtown and out to the Ship Channel and back, all to raise money for Houston's urban reforestation. Casual riders are welcome, but, for the bike averse, there is a post-ride party at City Hall, complete with food and live music.

Starts and ends at City Hall, 901 Bagby St. More info at
