Prince played The Belmont Saturday

I saw Matt Dentler mention a rumor that Prince played the Belmont on Saturday in a post yesterday and another mention popped up as well.

Well, I found this Statesman blog entry and Statesman news story this afternoon and it appears that Prince did, in fact, play The Belmont on Saturday night for a private birthday party for local philanthropist Chris Mattson (AMOA among other things) with Groupo Fantasma backing him up. More from Prince’s own site here.

Anybody know anyone lucky enough to attend?

    My initial knee-jerk reaction was more about the greedy corporate pigs moving into Autin and destroying it very soul and character. I have slept on it and I now believe that The Marriot Corporation should pay ALL OF THE MONEY REQUIRED FOR THIS MOVE. When I first moved to Austin in 1976, “Las Manitas” was “Congress Avenue Cafe”. Parking was all diagonal,, all along Congress Avenue, and Austin was too cool. What Austin has become only attracts the shallow-minded, money grubbers. Sad, Very Sad
