If you’re too timid to tackle Prince’s songbook on your lonesome, now’s your chance to be part of the chorus when the Low Bar Chorale orchestrates a massive singalong in downtown Portland! Formerly OK Chorale, this rotating cast of characters normally hosts drop-in bar singalongs (with a live band led by Ben Landsverk) every other Tuesday at Revolution Hall’s Show Bar, tackling the likes of Gaga, Radiohead, The Decemberists, Portugal. The Man and The Cure. But with the 35th anniversary of Purple Rain and the return of the Pedalpalooza Bowie Vs Prince ride after a two-year hiatus, all paths’ll lead to the square to sing the songs of The Purple One. Free and all ages, star vocalists like Pink Martini's China Forbes, Edna Vazquez and Arietta Ward will lead the way and DJ Rescue (aka The Dandys’ Zia McCabe) hold down the dance after party.
