It’s hard to believe it’s been a year, but DJ Sober will be celebrating his first anniversary as the Thursday night resident DJ at the Travis basement this evening, where he planted a new flag after leaving his comfortable weekly at Beauty Bar. He’ll be joined, of course, by his ever-busy partner, Picnictyme, who has a new album coming out soon, and you can find more about that on FrontRow. There will also be a guest appearance by a national act this evening, Queens N.Y.-resident Nicole, a DJ and singer who plays in the R&B duo, Nina Sky. Sober will also be playing our “Best Of Big D” party on July 23rd, and you can get tickets by going here. Things kick off at 10:30 pm on Travis Street tonight.

Out in Fort Worth this evening, Stage West will begin its run of the production, Heroes, that’s the award-winning novel that none other than Tom Stoppard translated from French-to-English. Just based on venue and translator alone, we have high hopes for this particular show.

Finally, Les Misérables is now a week into its extensive run at the Wyly, and I was corrected by a huge fan of the production earlier this week on a visit to Chicago. I called it a “musical,” and she quickly countered that it is technically an “opera.” What do you think, Les Mis experts?

    If Les Miserables were an opera, it would be performed by an opera company in an opera house. Since it was performed by a theater company in a theater house, it’s a musical theater work. Those are the rules.
