NPG @ City Winery - 8/21/2013
NPG @ City Winery - 8/21/2013

The first night of New Power Generation's residency at City Winery was last night *8/21), with an early and a late show. There was no sign of Prince Rogers Nelson, though, and no special guests at all for the late show, but the early show had an appearance from R&B singer-songwriter Alice Smith. Did you go last night? Pictures from last night are in this post.

The NPG -- featuring singers Shelby J., Liv Warfield and the 11-piece NPG Horns -- are back again tonight (8/22) for early (7 PM) and late (midnight) shows. New Orleans singer Luke James will be with the band for both sets and perhaps, maybe, let's hope, other promised "surprise guests." If money don't matter 2 night, roll the dice... tickets are still available. After tonight there are two more shows, both late: Friday (8/23) and then Sunday's (8/25) which is billed as a VMAs afterparty and more than twice as expensive ($200) than the other shows ($75). Tickets are still available for those too.

UPDATE: Prince did appear on night 2 (8/22)!.
