Let’s get through this thing called life and dance it out on April 21, when DJ Steve Reynolds (of Party Like It’s 1999 and Housequake) will take us Around The World In A Day with a blend of All Things Prince: the hits, deep cuts, remixes, rarities, songs written for other artists, and more. And because the very thought of Prince conjures his image, we’ll have Music Video Time Machine projecting clips from his music videos, live performances, and films.
