Seattle, WA

Thank you to everyone that came out to our party in Seattle. It was a 16 hour drive from San Francisco but it was worth it. Thanx to Carla and the staff at Rebar for being so nice to us. Shout outs to Rachel, Carla, Indy (Iller Clothing), Freddy (King of Pants), Matthew (PBR) and everyone else that we got to see again or meet for the first time. Below are some photos from the event. If you took some photos or if you took some photos in the photo booth email them to us so we can add them to this page. By the way - warning, do not play "Let's Go Crazy" in Seattle - because in Seattle they do go crazy to this song! Even to the point of two people body slamming each other. The most requested songs on this night were PYT, Erotic City and U Got the Look. The final vote from people that filled out ballots - Prince with 39 votes, Michael with 29 votes. Hope to be back soon.

Blood on the Dance Floor
Bomb Hip-Hop Mastermind Pits the Purple One Against the Acquitted One

At this stage of history, it seems almost cruel to cast Prince and Michael Jackson as rivals. While the former continues to compose, record, perform, and tour with the obsessive artistry that has distinguished his three-decades-and-counting career, the latter is content to repackage old hits ad infinitum and pad around Bahrain in a burqa. About the only forum where Prince and Jackson can contend as near equals is on the dance floor, where the greatest dance records of each—Prince's "Erotic City," "Housequake," and "Kiss"; Jackson's "Don't Stop Till You Get Enough," "Wanna Be Startin' Something," and "Billie Jean"—remain universal intoxicants.

Enter DJ Dave Paul, founder and CEO of San Francisco's legendary Bomb Hip-Hop record label, who brings his renowned "Prince vs. Michael" dance party to Re-bar on Thursday, March 23. "The first concept was to do a Prince night," says Dave Paul, on the phone from the Bay Area. "But there'd been a lot of Prince-only nights, so we decided to make it a fight."

Unsurprisingly, the night was a smash, and over the past four years, DJ Dave Paul has toured his Prince vs. Michael battle around the country. "What's cool is that there's so much music from them that no two nights are the same," says Dave Paul, who spikes his battle sets with music from each of the artists' side projects. (For Prince, that's Vanity 6, Sheila E, and the Time; for Jacko, the Jacksons and the Jackson 5.) As for the winner, Dave Paul says, "It's a tie. Ultimately, it comes down to what the women like."
