    Susannah Melvoin In-store Appearance

    Electric Fetus - Minneapolis

    Sunday, April 23rd - 11:30 a.m.

    Our friend Susannah Melvoin returns to The Electric Fetus for a special event on Sunday, April 23rd at 11:30 a.m. 

    Susannah will be sharing the never-before-seen, Prince-approved artwork for the unreleased 1986 Prince & the Revolution album The Dream Factory.

    "Prince loved the Electric Fetus and even days before he transcended was tweeting about them selling his Piano and Microphone concert program. This just seemed like a great way to honor both the work Prince and I put into the Dream Factory project, and his love for the Electric Fetus. I can't wait to show the fans what they've been hearing about and discussing amongst themselves for decades! I miss my friend dearly and will do my part to keep his musical legacy alive and to keep sharing my gift as he always encouraged me to do." - Susannah Melvoin.

    This event is free and open to all ages.
