Can Boyfriend top her last big Houston performance?

Come rain or shine, Boyfriend will put on a show. The underwear-clad, New Orleans-based cabaret rapper proved as much four years ago, when she performed at the Legendary Art Car Ball, the wild fete and Orange Show Fundraiser that precedes the annual Art Car Parade in Houston.

That year, the last before COVID forced the whole event to go on hiatus, the ball took place downtown, in the shadow of City Hall at Hermann Square. Just before Boyfriend and her cadre of dancers were set to take the stage
