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 @ss off and have the time of your life.
"For TEN 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

ABOUT THE DJ:
