It’ the last Wednesday of the month, which means it is time for Jake Rudh and Transmission to take over the Varsity Theater for the evening. Tonight’s theme (by popular demand) is Prince and The MPLS Sound meets New Jack Swing, and although there has been some great stuff in the past, this could be the best. Any time our Purple Overlord is involved, it’s obviously a good thing and this one is also being deemed “anything goes.” (It promises to be full of “full of beats, funky bass and sleek synth lines.”) Most importantly, there will be Prince. Lots and lots of Prince. If you can’t get onboard with that, well we just don’t know what to tell you. 10 p.m. Free. —Eric D. Johnson
