prince-purple-rain-graffiti

As part of BFI Black Star Bristol in conjunction with Come the Revolution – join us on Sunday 13th Nov at 6pm in the Watershed for a tribute to Prince, a purple people party with pre-film delights, a screening of 1984 classic Purple Rain and an after party with a DJ set from the legendary Norman Jay MBE.

“Where do I begin, before I discovered Chuck Berry or made sense of Tina Turner for that matter, rock music was White music, then came this pint sized dandy who made the guitar holler, stroke, scream, and shout. I was hooked; am still hooked and that addiction began with Purple Rain.

More than the music, Purple Rain was the bible for any adult or adolescent who ever felt they were on the outside. Prince was our pied piper our guide, our guru. He showed us being on the outside is cool.”

– Edson Burton, Come The Revolution
