Thriller Like It’s 1999

Attention, beat lovers. Tuesday-night throw-downs are few and far between. If you’re ready to dance, sweat and watch your bar mates grab their junk, head to Michael Jackson vs. Prince at the Riot Room. Inspired by NYC’s DJ Spinna, local DJs Bill Pile and Mike Scott hope the battle celebration (perhaps we’ll call it a “battlebration”?) will answer the biggest pop question of all time. Who’s the king? Pile, Scott and special guests will spin the hits from the Gloved One, “the Artist” and other related pop sensations. Doors open at 8 p.m. for this 21-and-older event.
