Purple Rain Tribute
Friday, July 29


Prince was an artist so talented, so ahead of the curve, so sexually transcendent that it was hard to believe that he was a human, let alone a mortal being. It was as if some purple god dropped a changeling upon the earth to melt bodies and drop melting, funky guitar licks into his progressive, intense pop. To celebrate his life, what better way than to screen Purple Rain, Prince’s all-everything-purp rock drama. Released in late July of 1984, the movie tells the story of The Kid, his bitchin’ motorcycle and his rise to fame thanks to that unforgettable, titular ballad. Free, 10pm, Brass Monkey, 2702 N. St. Mary's St.
