Cover bands that exist so that their members can sing the songs as psychic love letters to the songwriters themselves are extortionately rare. As such, Princess is the deeply funky Prince cover band fronted by Saturday Night Live vet Maya Rudolph and L.A. singer-songwriter Gretchen Lieberum. They’ve been singing together ever since college and, after taking the band everywhere from Sasquatch to the Hollywood Bowl, they’re like two great tastes that taste great together — sorry, 2gether. What you’ll see tonight is closer to astral projection than fandom when it comes to their performance of songs such as “Darling Nikki” and “Purple Rain.”
