Last year I paid a visit to Bossy Grrl's Pinup Joint in Columbus, Ohio. I found myself back there again in early May for their Monday Night Mayhem show. I was there following one of my favorite touring groups, Thunder Snow Cone, through a few midwest shows they were doing. Their shows on this tour will form the basis of an upcoming column, but on the night covered here they were appearing as the guest features in the middle of a large, heavily-booked show being done in honor of Prince.
It was a fun show with a lot of new (to me) performers, so I thought I'd devote this column to meeting some of the performers at giving it their all on a standard Monday night in middle America. Here are the local performers of the night, along with the Prince song being honored with their performances.
