When the COVID-19 pandemic began to interrupt our lives here in Houston, one of the first things to fall by the wayside was live music performances. Whether it was concerts at large stadiums or intimate performances in smaller clubs or bars, we suddenly found ourselves unable to go hear the great sounds of our favorite musicians. However, as things have gradually started to improve, music fans in Houston finally have something look forward to as 2020 starts to mercifully come to a close. Using very precise social distancing guidelines, various venues in Houston are planning upcoming concerts that will be quite welcome to those needing to get their live music fix. If you’re ready to attend a live concert, here are some details you’ll want to keep in mind.
White Oak Music Hall
As for where you can go to catch some live music, look no further than Houston’s White Oak Music Hall. A popular spot for live concerts over the years, it has recently announced two concerts that will take place in late October. On October 23, local star Shakey Graves, who hails from Austin, will take to the outdoor stage at White Oak to give fans a taste of what they’ve been missing the past several months. Only three days later, on October 26, you can catch a concert by acclaimed Jamaican trio Major Lazer. Performing songs from their new album Music is the Weapon, this concert is sure to get you dancing and feeling the vibes.
Grid Concert Series
While you may have loved the previous setup you found at the White Oak Music Hall, you will find a few changes this time around for these upcoming concerts. Billing it as the “Grid Concert Series,” White Oak has created a setup that will allow it to follow proper social distancing guidelines while still letting fans have a good time. To do so, the lawn at White Oak will be divided up into grid-like sections. Within each section, a grid can contain up to six people who can sit together within their area while the concert takes place. Of course, each grid will be spread out so that each is at least six feet apart from the next one, allowing everyone to stay safe.
Costs and Grid Sizes
As for costs, a grid can cost anywhere from $149 to as much as $1500. While most grids will be 7’x7′, other larger ones that can accommodate up to 10 people will also be available. But no matter what size grid you ultimately choose and how many people are with you at the concert, there is no doubt a fun time will be had by all.
Other Upcoming Concerts
In addition to the concerts scheduled for the White Oak Music Hall, there are many other live music performances scheduled in and around Houston in October and later in the year as well. To begin with, the Arena Theatre in Houston will host Grammy-winning singer Amy Grant on October 9, with appropriate social distancing rules being in place. Ticket prices will range for $39.50 to $99.50 and are expected to go quickly, so don’t procrastinate. But if your musical tastes are a bit different, you can head to the Warehouse Live Ballroom in Houston on October 16 to catch a performance by the Insane Clown Posse. Bringing an energy to their shows that is hard to match, you won’t want to miss this event. Finally, if you want to venture out and catch a live music performance the day before Halloween, make plans to be at the Toyota Center on October 30 to hear country music star Luke Combs. This concert, which will also feature performances by Ashley McBryde and Drew Parker, is highly-anticipated by the many country music fans here in the Lone Star State.
