OMG! We just heard from a little birdie (i.e., on good authority) that none other than Prince is rumored to make an appearance at tonight's five-year birthday show thrown by our friends at 89.3 The Current. The sold-out show will feature a stellar lineup of some of our favorite local acts - Solid Gold, P.O.S., Lookbook, Mason Jennings, and The Twilight Hours.
UPDATE: One of our tipsters just got word from a "Radio DJ who will remain nameless" that the MPR crew just got a call from Prince's handler asking about set times for tonight!!!
UPDATE: Prince totally showed up at 1st Ave last night! @Gimme_Noise reported via Twitter that The Current's Jim McGuinn said Prince wanted to come out to show his support for the station. He unfortunately didn't perform, but he did give starstruck fans something to tweet about, that's for sure!
It may be a long shot, but The Purple One sure has been making the rounds lately, and First Avenue is like his second home, so we're crossing our fingers that it's true! We scored tickets, so we'll be Twittering our findings tonight.
