While at my new favorite club the other night, we noticed a flyer for “Prince vs. Michael” on Friday. Well, clearly there’s no way to resist such a thing, so last night we went dancing. A projector alternated playing concert & video footage of either performer, and the DJs kept spinning tons of their dance hits, interspersed with occasional related stuff e.g. Sheila E.

Hard to identify highlights of the evening, because the whole thing was 10 pounds of awesome in a 5 pound bag, but towards the end of the evening “Billie Jean” got the crowd screaming along, and “Man in the Mirror” closed the evening with a more downtempo but still incredibly positive vibe.

In the end it wasn’t really a competition between Prince and Michael. As one girl leaving the show declared to her friends, “We’re all winners, you guys!” Indeed we were.
