The Concert, Reimagined


Concerts are making a comeback in a more intimate way, care of the Criner clan. Susie and Sanford Criner (founders of the Fabulous Satellite Lounge, Rockefeller%26rsquo;s and Club Hey Hey), along with daughter Annie C. Eifler, are introducing the Music with Friends concept to Houston in the fall. The idea is revolutionary: Purchase a membership and attend three annual concerts with friends or family in an intimate venue (for Houston, the Hobby Center%26rsquo;s Zilkha Hall) that spares you run-ins with fans who can be, shall we say, overzealous. Members even choose the performers who are brought in, reserve seats in advance for all performances and enjoy pre- and post-cocktail parties. Houston marks the fourth city for the club, which was founded in 2006 by Larry Farber in Charlottesville, North Carolina; previously engaged acts have included Tony Bennett, Diana Ross, Willie Nelsonand Earth Wind and Fire. For info and memberships, contact Annie Eifler at 713.899.3473, annie@musicwith friends.com, musicwithfriends.com.
