SXSW 2013 Lineup: Prince (That's Right: Prince) to Appear at La Zona Rosa on Saturday!

Your SXSW experience just got a lot more awesome (and purple): none other than Prince himself was added to the music lineup this morning. The Purple One will perform at La Zona Rosa in downtown Austin on Saturday night (March 16).

Prince has released over 30 albums and sold over 100 million records. He’s also won seven Grammys, and rocked a perm for longer than anyone other man would be allowed to.

His 1984 film, Purple Rain, remains one of the most iconic vanity projects in cinema history, boasting a soundtrack that features singles like “When Doves Cry” and the title track. Other albums include “1999,” “Sign ‘o’ the Times,” and “Musicology.”

If you can find any way to check his show out, do it. The man is a force of nature.
