02.24: The Polymorphines + Makeshift Lover + Dead People + The Bills – Siberia
02.25: Cliff Hines Presents: A Tribute to Prince – One Eyed Jacks
If this Cliff Hines tribute show is anything like the last one, in which the jazz-guitar impresario and upwards of 20 special guests played two sets of faithfully recreated David Bowie covers to the delight of a heavily costumed crowd, it’s going to be a ripper. Because for the second installment of Hines’ “Tribute to” series, the motley crew of talented local musicians will be tacking one of the most celebrated and influential catalogs ever assembled: the collected works of the one-and-only Prince.
Members of Sun Hotel, The Local Skank, Big History, King Rey, Magnetic Ear, The Next Generation and more will make up the all-star cast joining the Cliff Hines Quintet throughout the show; and the discounted cover charge offered to those who show up dressed as his or her favorite incarnation of The Artist guarantees a festive, memorable evening.
