Prince "Purple Rain" Second Line & celebration of the Purple One's life

The passing of one of the greatest musicians in U.S. history, Prince Rogers Nelson, has rocked music lovers worldwide. Cities across the country are lighting up their iconic buildings and bridges in the color purple to honor his royal badness with his favorite color, the color most often associated with royalty and nobility. Prince, as he was aptly named, was the closest thing our country has ever had to royalty. And in keeping with our city’s beloved tradition, we will honor his Purple Majesty with a second line parade today/Monday at 6 p.m.

And be forewarned: if Michael Jackson’s second line in 2009, which saw several thousand revelers, is any indication of size and energy, this parade will no doubt be one of the largest this city has ever hosted. Over 1,500 people have already RSVP’d ‘Yes’ to the FB invite posted by MusicSynergy504 which is organizing the parade.

People were rude to the multimillion dollar TV show! Sad! Why can't everyone just respect the major network that gets a free pass to block traffic downtown for a weekend while continuing a post-Katrina "resurrection" narrative?  #NotAllMusicals!

Also this week: Big Freedia, St. Joseph's altars, Super Sunday, a floating ant pile and a grim entry in #NOLAscanner history.
