Last year at the Salute to Supernatural convention in Minneapolis, the house band Louden Swain opened the show with a Prince song. It was “Kiss” and it was looped right in with the “Rules and Regulations” of the welcoming portion. It earned the band great cheers. Throughout the remainder of the con, they played snippets of Prince here and there, shouting out to us that they realized that they were indeed in Minnesota and that he was ours. This year, that nice recognition hit like a gut punch.
