Diagnosis: Instead of "Where's Fluffy" it will be more like "Where's Princey?!!??!?!
So PRINCE & The NPG performed at his Paisley Park studios this weekend. Friday night, it was a 2 song set with a dance party that followed. Saturday, it was an hour set then the dance party.
Both night's performances were in the dark. The reason they rehearse in the dark is to test musicians skills under pressure. A few of them cheated with light-up computer lead sheets. Overall, they did excellent.
As some of you know, I was asked to come out to Paisley Park Saturday early that same morning. It came as a surprise. They wanted me there by 3 P.M. rehearsal but the earliest flight had me there at 4:30 P.M. I arrive with texts saying that the NPG pushed back rehearsal til 7 P.M. since I was not there. Seriously? Oh man.
Prince & NPG will be taking over the City Winery tonight at midnight! Tix will be on sale at the door. All band members have posted about the show. Please LEAVE your cellphones at home!
Tickets will be $100.00 at the door!!!!!
UPDATE Sold Out online! City Winery Facebook Page Says to see ticketbuyers (scalpers soon).....

It is a little bit after midnight when I arrive at The Record Plant in Hollywood to talk with and listen to Andy Allo's "Superconductor" tonight. What I hear over the next few hours is an artist that is on the rise and willing to challenge herself and others around her to get there.
For the full article, click on the continue reading button below....
A new interview with Andy Allo talks about "Superconductor"'s distribution, chitlins, The Chappelle Show Prince basketball skit, and more!
The DJ's at KSFM tried to label Andy as Prince's girlfriend, but had them "slow their roll" as she said they were just friend's. After they got the Prince question out of the way, they were able to concentrate on her and the upcoming "Superconductor" album, her influences,
Here is part one, where they talk about Prince, the Chappelle Show, and Andy's Basketball skills.
In part two, Andy talks about her influences, Nina Simone, Sly & The Family Stone, and even throws in some Ice Cube for good measure. They also talk about how long she has been a singer and how the DJ scared beautiful women. She also touches base on distribution and how Universal is interested.
And in part 3, they play a slightly longer version of "People Pleaser" than you have heard before. She talks about working on "Superconductor" with Prince, Maceo Parker, The Hornheadz, and THE NPG and the DJ wanting to add some triangle to the album. We also find out that the album is planned to be 9 songs.
All in all, a very good interview as we found out more about "Superconductor" and Andy is having some fun. We hear there might be some coverage of Andy in the local Sacramento paper and a cover story as well before things get kicked off in the national spotlight.
Check out the interview above and let us know what you think.-DocFB
