Prince Panel Discussion with Allen Beaulieu, Dez Dickerson & Kevin Cole
St. Paul, MN 55102
Join Prince photographer Allen Beaulieu, Dez Dickerson, guitarist for The Revolution, and veteran First Ave DJ Kevin Cole for a panel discussion about Prince's early career. Moderated by The Current's Andrea Swensson, the panel will discuss the emerging R&B, punk, and new wave sounds that emanated from Prince's hometown when he was just starting out. Cole will also DJ in the gallery from 6:30-7 pm.
This is the opening program for the new photography exhibit featuring Beaulieu's work, "Prince: Before the Rain."
Beaulieu worked with Prince from the late 1970s into the early 1980s, charting the musician's path from rising star to superstardom. Always at Prince's side with camera in hand, Beaulieu helped Prince carry out his vision with legendary album cover images and promotional photos during the groundbreaking "Dirty Mind," "Controversy," and "1999" era, while also capturing live performances and intimate off-stage moments.
Prince: Before the Rain is made possible in part by presenting sponsor Xcel Energy and by the Legacy Amendment through the vote of Minnesotans on Nov. 4, 2008.
The first Tuesday of each month during the First Avenue: Stories of Minnesota's Mainroom exhibit, celebrate with DJs, dance nights, microshows, trivia games, and insider conversations with the musicians who played and the staff that made it all possible.
