My Fair Lady
@The Hobby Center

Performances Tonight
and Sunday Afternoon

From Lincoln Center Theater that brought the world, The King & Iand South Pacific, comes “a sumptuous new production of the most perfect musical of all time” (Entertainment Weekly), Lerner & Loewe’s MY FAIR LADY. Director Bartlett Sher’s glowing production is “thrilling, glorious and better than it ever was” (New York Times). “Every so often a revival comes along that reminds you how indispensable great theater can be” (NY1).

Boasting such classic songs as “I Could Have Danced All Night,” “The Rain in Spain,” “Wouldn’t It Be Loverly” and “On the Street Where You Live,” MY FAIR LADY tells the story of Eliza Doolittle, a young Cockney flower seller, and Henry Higgins, a linguistics professor who is determined to transform her into his idea of a “proper lady.” But who is really being transformed?

Thouxanbanfauni makes his way to the Bayou City this weekend at Houston's Scout Bar.

The popular once underground artist a few years ago spoke with XXL.com how he came about his name and how it is pronounced. (See video below) "First off, there are a few ways you should never say Fauni's name. "This is not how you say my name," the 24-year-old born Taajwar Latimore begins. "It's not Funny. It sounds a lot like funny but it's not Funny. It's Fauni. Thouxin. Thouxan. No in, like xin. Thouxbane. I'm not Thouxbane. I'm not Lil Thouxbane, none of that. Oh, and of course, Thouxanband, no D at the end. Thousandband$, that's not how you say it. Thoux, that's not how you say it even though like for short, I understand."

Sylvan Esso in Concert
@Bayou Music Center

Sunday 9/19/2021 8:00 PM

Sylvan Esso is the Durham, NC duo of vocalist Amelia Meath and electronic musician Nick Sanborn. This weekend they will be at Bayou Music Center downtown in Bayou Place.

Sylvan Esso was not meant to be a band says their bio at Sylvan Esso.com. "But, Amelia Meath had written a song called "Play It Right" and sung it with her trio Mountain Man. She's met Nick Sanborn, an electronic producer working under the name Made of Oak, in passing on a shared bill in a small club somewhere. She asked him the scramble it, to render her work his way. He did the obligatory remix, but he sensed that there was something more important here than a onetime handoff: Of all the songs Sanborn had ever recast, this was the first time he felt he'd added to the raw material without subtracting from it, as though, across the unseen wires of online file exchange, he'd found his new collaborator without even looking.
