Calendar: Rude Core Funk: A Violet Expedition

February 15, 2020

9 p.m.-3 a.m.

All Prince unreleased/rare edits and cuts from the vaults spun by Chicago's Traxx aka PeachbLacK

pUrPLe PoLiTiciAns ChiCaGo in collaboration with The Black Lodge present “Rude Core Funk: A Violet Expedition.” An extended selection from TRAXX [Nation] introducing PeachbLack with host Vicki Vale to honor Prince Rogers Nelson (June 7th 1958 – April 21st 2016).

pUrPLe PoLiTiciAns ChiCaGo is an underground Chicago-based Prince music appreciation group with additional focus on royal rarities and projects linked to the Minneapolis funk sound. Mastering any instrument he chose; dancing and singing better than anyone who could devote their life to just one talent. Doing it all while throwing cues to his band and never missing a beat. His death served to remind us he was human. That in itself makes his achievements all the more astounding.

A relentless work rate saw him release 39 studio albums in as many years since his 1978 release and debut of For You. That’s not even counting his many beloved and successful side projects. Barely a year passed without a major musical event taking place.

This is a one-night only musical affair with royal rarities of the Minneapolis sound: rare and unreleased recordings from over the years with unpublished, uncirculated Prince material, rehearsal songs, outtakes, B-sides, 45s, 12 inches and unofficial fan club records.

This night is not about the popularity of what many around the world already know and love, but more about the artistic magic of his unique ability to musically change things up and always look forward to the next endeavor.

Doors open at 9 p.m.; 21+, pre-sale tickets $15 until midnight 2/15, $20 after midnight and into the dawn.

This will be a very limited capacity event at an intimate and new DTLA private location and sound system! You must RSVP or buy a ticket in order to get location. Location will go out evening of the event!
