Prince film screenings and dance parties in Los Angeles this week.
Saturday, July 2nd: Purple Rain at the Hollywood Forever cemetery, hosted by Cinespia. It's sold out but tickets can be found on Craigslist. "Special surprise guests" have been advertised. Questlove is in town and he's DJ-ed "Purple Rain" screenings before for Cinespia. Plus, Wendy & Lisa live in the area. So, who knows what the night will bring?
For the record, Questlove pulls out deep cuts, protégé songs, 12" inch singles and unreleased tracks in his Prince party mixes. He's got a lot of heart in it. Never thought I would be able to dance to "Purple Music" or songs from the Black Album, until attending one of his all-Prince dance parties in 2008.
Sunday, July 3rd: Purple Rain and Sign O' The Times at the Aero Theater. Double feature. Both on 35mm film, with Purple Rain having a 4-track mag sound print - kind of amazing.
Monday, July 4th: Prince vs. Rick James dance party. Happening at The Short Stop in Echo Park. Hosted by the Motown Mondays DJs. Free admission. Starts at 9:30 PM.
Friday, July 8th at 11:59 PM: Under The Cherry Moon at the NuArt Theater. Looking forward to this, as I've never seen it.
If any local Purple People or Peach & Black mofos wanna meet up at any of these events, feel free to send a private message & introduce yourself.
Wave your hands for Positivity, y'all!
