“Hoping you can put that 9 to 5 upon the shelf and enjoy yourself at Brooklyn Bowl! Join me and my special guests Maine Anders (as Michael) and Dame Cuchi Frita (as Prince) go-go dancing as we celebrate the music of Prince and associated artists and Michael and the Jackson family.”
This event has been making its way across the country for the past 8 years and we are so excited to finally have it arrive in our backyard. Replete with lookalike go-go dancers and some of the best music of any generation, The Prince and Michael Experience is sure to deliver! We are super excited to reunite with our West Coast potna Dave! Well done sir!
Here is a writeup of the event from the SF Weekly:
Prince and Michael Jackson fans go toe-to-toe on the dance floor as djs mix album cuts, remixes, rare tracks and hits from the two artists as well as cuts by such ancillary acts as Sheila E., The Jackson 5, The Time and Janet Jackson. The music is far from the only thing happening at this party, there’s theme dancing, a face-off between guests repping The Purple One or The King of Pop, and much, much more. This is the perfect night out to lounge with your friends, make some new friends, get your drink on, dance your ass off and have the time of your life.
Collectively, Prince and Michael Jackson helped define the early-’80s era of MTV, revolutionized both R&B and popular music, and influenced thousands of musicians worldwide. The Prince and Michael Experience is meant to celebrate the music of two of the biggest pop cultural icons of our generation. It is done with love and mutual respect for both artists. The experience is presented by bombhiphop.com who have successfully produced over 100 of these events in San Francisco as well as Seattle, Portland, Chicago, Oakland, Los Angeles, Bend, Vancouver and Honolulu.
“For EIGHT years now, Dave Paul (proprietor of hip-hop label Bomb Records) has hosted and DJ’ed at the brilliant “Prince vs. Michael Jackson” parties. As selections of hits, rarities, and remixes from both artists are presented over the course of the evening, audience members square off in funky battle, holding signs bearing the mug of their favored entertainer to judge which one is the true king of pop. This sure ain’t the place for cynics, but Darling Nikki’s and Dirty Diana’s are all welcome to participate.” – SF WEEKLY
