Dec 31: Prince vs Michael Jackson | Berbati's | "I Wanna Be Your Lover" takes a swing at "PYT" | BombHipHop

From Berbatti's:

Prince and associated artists go toe-to-toe on the dance floor against Michael and the Jackson family – this is the ultimate dance party! DJ's mix album cuts, remixes, rare tracks and classics from their extensive music collections to battle it out on the turntables. This face-off always promises to be a dance marathon – “I Wanna Be Your Lover” takes a swing at “PYT (Pretty Young Thing),” only to be pounded by “Wanna Be Starting Somethin,” which had better watch it's back when “Kiss” comes around.

Update: 2008/2009 Portland New Years event info here

This event is presented by bombhiphop.com who have successfully produced 29 of these parties in San Francisco as well as Seattle, Portland and Bend. “As a concept for a DJ battle, Prince vs. Michael is brilliant,” writes SF Weekly's Hiya Swanhuyser. This dance party event features music from Prince, Michael, The Time, The Jackson 5, Sheila E., Janet Jackson, Vanity 6 and many more. Who will win, The Purple One or the King of Pop? Who cares… this is the perfect night out to lounge with your friends, make some new friends, get your drink on, dance your @ss off and celebrate the music of both these pop stars.

“For five years now, Dave Paul (proprietor of local 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 Nikkis and Dirty Dianas are all welcome to participate.” – SF WEEKLY

Tickets for this event are available at Berbati's Restaurant, Jackpot Records or Ticketweb.com. Tickets are $10 in advance and $12 at the door.

    I just stopped by Jackpot Records (9th and Burnside) and was informed that they were not selling tickets for the event.

    This is Dave Paul from the Prince vs Michael party. It’s always a pleasure to come to the Northwest to present PvsM. We rocked Seattle last night and we’re looking forward to Portland on New Years! See everone this Monday night.

    I was lucky enough to attend, and NOT Pay a cover,(because covers are for saps, and im a Nut ;-) Great battle, I didn’t think they would have impersonators for both MJ and Prince…i personally liked the Prince impersonator, more than the MJ, but both kept the crowd going and had great stage presence! Definitely will attend this event again…
    P.S. Some of New Years was a fuzzy blurry at Berbati’s
