      This, in case you somehow didn't know (and please accept our sincere congratulations on finally waking up from that years-long coma, yo, it's good to have you back), is Lin-Manuel Miranda's hip-hop musical about America's Founding Father Alexander Hamilton. Brought to town by the good people of Broadway in Austin, it's a phenomenon that's worthy of its endless hype, and they say tickets are possibly still available if you were born on a full moon, the wind is coming in from the northeast, and the Westlake sibyl dances a clockwise tarantella during consultation. Or, better: See the website right here for the show's two-days-before ticket lottery.
      May 28-June 16. Tue.-Fri., 8pm; Sat., 2 & 8pm; Sun., 1 & 7pm. $79-539.

      Michael Fracasso (album release), Charlie Sexton, Michael Ramos

      Following 1998’s World in a Drop of Water, Michael Fracasso continued working with Charlie Sexton and George Reiff in the studio, recording the soundtrack to Natural Selection (aka The Monster Hunter) and then a follow-up to the former album – at that juncture his third studio LP. Big Top proved a freewheeling kaleidescope, both playful and poignant, but never made it to market.: “After the previous record kind of flopped and I believed in it so much, I just didn’t want to put another one out there to be killed like that,” admits Fracasso of spiking the full-length. “I decided to scale back on how I was approaching things and go back to square one. Go back to being a folk song, acoustic guy.”: The songs reemerged as Sexton prepared a tribute to George Reiff following the beloved local bassist’s death in 2017, and the recordings so impressed producer/keyboardist/arrangement genius Michael Ramos that he pushed to put them out with his Lucky Hound label. Fracasso and Sexton revive Big Top live along with Ramos, and while some songs have remained in the singer’s repertoire (“A Deal’s a Deal,” “Long After Hours”), most have never been performed. From the Beatles blast of “Thurston’s Lament” to the gorgeously understated “My Blue Heaven,” Fracasso’s timeless melodies still hum.: “At first, Charlie and I were like, ‘How did we do this?’” Fracasso laughs. “It was so complete in a weird way that I didn’t know whether we could get back into the record in that manner again. We were just kind of on a roll back then, so when I listened back to it, some of the stuff I had to go back to Charlie and ask, ‘What did we do here?’: “Some of the stuff, I don’t even know what I’m playing.”

Signed to Flying Lotus’ Brainfeeder label and celebrated for work on Kendrick Lamar’s To Pimp a Butterfly, the 34-year-old multi-instrumentalist earned calls of genius for his three studio albums. 2017’s Drunk proves he can even make meows sound cool.
