Episode 16: “Purple Rain”

Purple Rain written by Prince, originally released by Prince and the Revolution in 1984.
Show on 20 January 2016, Soho Stage (Augsburg)



Nonti-Edlrost-Purple Rain
Inspired by the Edlrost performance, Nontira Kigle of Nonti Illustration & Design whipped up a wonderful sketch to commemorate the evening. Thanks, Nonti!! (She also performed a version of Smells Like Teen Spirit at the first Augsburg Episode at Weissen Lamm).


JJ never meant to cause you any sorrow, but his costume may have brought some to tears. Zum Gluck, there are no good photos – only a suggestive sketch by Nonti.
Prince’s passionate hymn was a very long song (8:42), but the 3 hours required
for 9 Versions flew by like a crying dove.
