Houston-formed Rock 'N' Roll Band Blue October Return to Texas


  • Chris Barber
Originally formed in Houston in 1995, Blue October grabbed the attention of Kid Rock’s former manager early in their career and eventually signed to Universal Records, launching the band into the deep pools of mainstream rock.

While the Texas boys have a heavy mainstream radio rock sound, traces remain of Americana and even post-rock – that is, along with the kind of heavy production that just goes with the territory of being a huge rock ’n’ roll band. With numerous releases, countless tours and a few member changes, Blue October isn’t going anywhere.

$32-$59, Sun Oct. 21, 8pm, Aztec Theatre, 104 N. St. Mary’s St, theaztectheatre.com.
