Bayou Music Center in Downtown will host the return of Houston comedian Mo Amer in September, and you can be sure the city will turn out in support.

Born in Kuwait and raised in H-Town, the comic most recently made his mark with the successful first season of his Houston-shot Netflix comedy, Mo, which loosely follows his life growing up as a Palestinian refugee in the Alief area. Since its premiere, Amer has continued to rack up accolades with multiple awards for the show, an upcoming second season, and sold out performances every time he returns home.

Even more, the comic will deliver his biggest performance yet in Houston on the officially recognized Mo Amer Day, and you’ll need to act quickly to secure solid seats before they’re gone.

Tickets start at $38, with VIP options available.

One of the most unique acoustic spaces in Houston provides the site for the Underground Sounds concerts at Buffalo Bayou Park, made in collaboration with four Houston-based arts organizations.

Made of towering cement columns and vast open spaces, the cavernous Buffalo Bayou Park Cistern hosts the series across four weekends this fall, which will see musicians taking advantage of the structure’s unique sonic stage to create works building on trailing echoes for a one-of-a-kind auditory experience.

Champions of international contemporary music, Nameless Sound will kick off Underground Sounds in September, followed by October performances from Da Camera and the vocalist/double bass duo of Alexandra Smither and Austin Lewellen, before the series wraps up with the Musiqa chamber ensemble in November.

This popular annual series is limited in space and tickets will sell out for several performances, so act fast as ticket windows open to make sure you don’t miss one of Houston’s most unique concert experiences.
