Theory for Turntables is a podcast from OverthinkingIt.com that takes an entertaining look at the big ideas behind your favorite records. Each week, hosts Matt Wrather and Ryan Sheely pick a classic or contemporary album and dissect its pop cultural significance in a discussion that is equal parts silly and serious.
On February 7, join Matt and Ryan for a special live event that celebrates 30 years of Purple Rain, the classic soundtrack album by Prince and the Revolution. The evening will kick off with a vinyl listening party, where we’ll spin Purple Rain from start to finish. This will be a chance for you to enjoy both the singles and the deep cuts from the album while casually chatting with your friends.
Next, Matt and Ryan will take the stage to analyze Purple Rain in a live taping of an episode of Theory For Turntables. Is Prince for real? What does it sound like when doves cry? What does it mean for the rain to be purple? Come see Matt and Ryan try to answer these questions (and many others) and be part of this very special live episode of Theory for Turntables.
Catalyst Comedy is BYOB for patrons who are ages 21 and up.
