A tribute to Prince and Michael Jackson, every first Saturday of the month at Madrone Art Bar!
The PR+MJ Experience is a gathering of fans celebrating the music of two of the best to ever do it. DJ Dave Paul spins & beatmixes album cuts, b-sides, un-released tracks, remixes, 12″ versions and hits from the two artists as well as songs by ancillary acts such as Sheila E., Janet Jackson, The Time and Jackson 5. Some people dance, some people drink, some people just hang out and enjoy the music. Please note – there are no tribute bands, no impersonators and no holograms.

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. This party pays tribute to two of the greatest artists of our time. 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, dance and have the time of your life.
“For SIXTEEN 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
