What's better than Oakland's favorite 10-piece Prince cover band helping you make the transition from Friday the 13th into Valentine's Day at Slim's? Why, Margaret Cho joining said cover band onstage, of course.

The Purple Ones, a party band if there ever was one, is the brainchild of Morty Okin (former co-founder of the Michael Jackson tribute Foreverland and the Neil Diamond tribute Superdiamond) and one of our favorite local guitarists, Roger Rocha (Four Non-Blondes). 

S.F. native Cho, who most recently jammed out with Bob Mould and other local musicians during her "Be Robin" campaign for the homeless in December, is apparently also huge Prince fan (because of course she is). She's been known to join them onstage before (see below) — and all sources say it's a sight not to be missed. Tickets are still available for the show tonight, for $20 at the door.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
