Live Review: The Sheer, Epic Princeliness of Prince

I’m still trying to come up with an answer to “How was Prince?,” a question at least twenty people have asked me since leaving his 8 p.m. show at DNA Lounge last night. My mom, in particular, was just excited to recognize the name of someone I was writing about, but strangers too — people on Twitter, the homeless guy lingering outside the club, servers at the restaurant where my brother cooks, where I went after the show to decompress — everyone wanted to know what was it like, what did he play, was it worth $250 a ticket?

Prince in 1979. He looks exactly the same.
