Houston Live is a free resource for local and touring bands to help them find great places to play in the Houston area. It is a impartial review and we receive no money for this service. We also refuse to accept advertising money from the clubs we review so that we may call it like we see it. All reviews are based on unannounced visits to the clubs in question. We have set for ourselves the lofty goal of creating a local music community in the Houston area to allow great bands who originate here to stay here and further their music career. To further this goal we must have great live music clubs to support these local artists.
