poster outside City Winery all week (via @mrtillman17)
NPG

He did it again. Much like Thursday night, Prince showed up last night (8/25) at City Winery for the last of New Power Generation's residency at City Winery. Technically it was this morning as the show -- billed as a VMAs afterparty -- didn't start till midnight. And it didn't finish till almost 6 AM. Sets from Shelby J. and Liv Warfield started off the night, followed by "special guest sets" starting at 1 AM from Cee Lo Green (who played Brooklyn Bowl earlier that night), Family Stone/Grand Central Station's Larry Graham (who plays BB King's Wednesday, tickets are on sale), and Alice Smith (who played other nights of the residency too). Prince took the stage around 3 AM and played almost literally till the break of dawn. Doug E. Fresh, who was there on Thursday, guested again too.

Did you go? What did you think? And how are you awake?

The approximate setlist is below...
