HOUSTON, Texas -- To get a sense of where the Houston music scene is at, look to the smaller venues.

For every large- to mid-sized Bayou City performance space like the Toyota Center, Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion, 713 Music Hall, and White Oak Music Hall that hosts thousands of attendees, there are numerous other performance spaces that spotlight a variety of musical genres reflecting the varied tastes of the city.

The extreme costs of big concert tickets mean it's the perfect time to rediscover what's happening at local establishments that feature plenty of homegrown talent and touring acts trying to make a name for themselves. Neighborhoods across the metro area are home to vibrant and welcoming spaces for musicians to ply their trade. Operated by those with a true passion for putting on shows, these places are an authentic way to experience the latest sounds.
