October 2….HONEYHONEY with Special Guest Chris Kasper -
The coalescence of this group has been nothing short of a predetermined soul contract amongst two alien hybrids that came here to spread sweet jams, inappropriate stage banter and insightful beliefs and thoughts via the clubs, festivals, theaters, internets, and Joe Rogan podcasts of the world. Their menagerie of sounds covers many traditional genres ranging from blues/rock and folk, to hip hop and jungle cat, which can explain why they've toured alongside the diverse likes of Sheryl Crow, James Morrison, Christina Perri, Trampled by Turtles, Xavier Rudd and Jake Bugg. Their love for the music they create and their friendship in this life are like a sacred egg that continues to be incubated with the utmost tender care. As they are in the middle of recording their third record, the rumors of it's evolved eargasmic potential have been spreading like a fungus that you won't want to get rid of. In their passionate endeavor to spread love and joy through their tunes, the now 20-somethings Ben and Suzanne have honored and appreciated their journey of rock thus far and will continue to do so until the mothership calls them home. Please contact the box office at 806-762-3233 to reserve tickets. Reserved seating. Cactus Theater, 1812 Buddy Holly Ave; 7 p.m.


October 2-3….LCU presents “The Boy Friend” - “The Jazz Age lives on in The Boy Friend, a light romantic spoof of 1920's musical comedy. Set against the backdrop of the French Riviera, this romantic spoof of 1920's musical comedies tells the story of English heiress, Polly, who is longing for only one thing: a boyfriend. Polly's father, convinced any boy who isn't wealthy will court Polly strictly for her financial situation, forbids her to engage any potential suitors. Honoring his wishes, Polly explains to Tony, the messenger boy with whom she's fallen in love, that she is no rich girl. This is just the tip of the mistaken identity iceberg as love proceeds to charmingly find its way through nearly every member of the cast and bring them all to a happy ending.

October 3…. LHUCA: Exploring Contemporary Art with Artist Glenn Downing
Glenn Downing grew up in China Springs, near Waco, Texas. He received his Master of Fine Arts in Sculpture from Virginia Commonwealth University, and his Bachelor of Fine Arts from University of Texas Austin. Downing is a Professor of Art at McLennan Community College in Waco, Texas. Downing’s artwork is raw and real. Through aggressive and consciously intuitive mark-making, Downing’s work tells stories visually. Using a wide array of materials, Downing produces bright, larger than life drawings and sculptures that do not conceal the artist’s process. This exposed process allows the work to have the impact that it holds. His work captures emotion. Downing refers to his artwork as his “visual tunes combining materials and images like notes.” Join us for coffee and donuts! Admission is free. . For questions or comments contact Linda Cullum at 806 762-8606 (linda.cullum@lhuca.org) or visit www.lhuca.org. LHUCA, 511 Ave K; 11:30 a.m. – 1 p.m.
