Tonight in Rock: Rock It to Prince

Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

It looks to be like a blast tonight at The Echo starting at 8 p.m. for a night dedicated to the music of Prince played by Har Mar Superstar, Lemon Sun, Buddy and The Nervous Return with Supercrass and Club Underground DJs between and after performances. The cover is your donation (if you can they say, we know you can, we say) at the door with proceeds benefitting Aids Project Los Angeles and Global Inheritance.

80s glam and Prince-inspired clad is recommend as the night will be documented by Spaceland Recordings. On site make will be provided by Nancie L. Rooney for those unprepared and free appetizers will be there by Real Rock 'n Roll Catering
