Prince and Michael Jackson Experience – 250th Party
Oct 18 at Nectar Lounge in Seattle. Prince and Michael Jackson fans celebrate as DJ Dave Paul from San Francisco mixes music from the two artists and ancillary acts.
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, get your drink on, dance your @ss off and have the time of your life.
“For ELEVEN 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

At exactly 3:00pm on Saturday, October 25, 2014, hundreds of World Dance Zombies will rise from the lawn of the Santa Barbara Courthouse Sunken Gardens to perform Michael Jackson’s iconic dance as part of a global phenomenon, Thrill the World. This will be the 5th year World Dance has hosted Thriller Santa Barbara. Our flashmob circuit will include State Street, Ghost Village Road, Soho, Neverland (MJ’s former estate in Los Olivos) and Cold Springs Tavern.
This is a fantastic opportunity for dancers and non-dancers alike to take part in an incredibly fun, spirited, inclusive happening! It offers great exercise, awesome community, and a chance to connect with the world, but it’s much more than that….
RWANDA EDUCATION FUND
Our purpose in producing the Thriller event each year is to help people in need. We raise the funds through event sponsorships, practice fees (only $35 for a 5 weeks of lessons!), and dancer sponsorships.
Our goal in 2014 is to raise $35,000 for our RWANDA EDUCATION FUND. This will make it possible for more than 100 students to attend school in 2015. Every dollar raised will go to the Fund. (In 2013 Thriller raised $30,460 to send 118 Rwanda primary, secondary, and college students to school, and contributed $3,560 to our local Boys and Girls Clubs.) Meet our current students and their sponsors

Tour The Michael Jackson “Thriller” Locations In Los Angeles
Source: Creepy LA
The Palace Theatre
In the days after Michael Jackson died, the marquee once again read, “Vincent Price in Thriller,” in a nod of respect to the legendary music video. (click here for pic) This is the theater where Michael and his date, played by Ola Ray, are watching the werewolf movie starring Michael.
The nearly 100 year old theater is now open only for the occasional special event or film shoot. 615 S. Broadway, Los Angeles
The Zombie Dance Intersection
Picture by Tony Hoffarth
After skipping past the graveyard, Ola Ray turns to find that Michael’s been turned into a zombie. Which, of course, means only one thing: dance off! Fittingly, most Angelenos wouldn’t be caught dead wandering around this intersection at night… but undead? Seems like a nice place to haunt.
Union Pacific Ave. & Los Palos St., Los Angeles
The Thriller House
“Thriller” ends with Ola Ray seeking refuge from the zombies by running into the safe haven of this delapitated old house. We know how that turned out…
The actual house is one of more than a dozen vintage Victorian homes in L.A.’s Angelino Heights neighborhood – also known as the Haunted House District of L.A. Even on the brightest summer day the almost every home along Carroll Street appears to be home to any number of ghosts or witches. (take a gander at CreepyLA’s field report of Angelino Heights). 1345 Carroll Ave, Los Angeles
Westlake Recording Studios
At an estimated cost of $700,000, the “Thriller” album was recorded here in Studio A throughout most of 1982. Fact: Songwriter Rod Temperton originally called the title track, “Starlight,” but woke up with a vision of the word “Thriller” at the top of Billboard’s charts. Telegraph has a great behind the scenes article on the making of the album. 8447 Beverly Blvd., West Hollywood
NEW YORK’S VILLAGE HALLOWEEN PARADE THRILLER DANCE OCTOBER 31, 2014
Since 2004, we have celebrated our combined love of gore and Michael Jackson by performing the infamous Thriller dance in the Greenwich Village Halloween Parade. We are between 17 and a million years old, and our dance experience ranges from novice to professional. We eat brains, grrrrrrrrrowl and bite, but most importantly, we boogie.
This Halloween, leave your mundane human life behind and transform into a rotting, dancing cadaver. After studio rehearsals, outdoor practices in Central Park, and zombie makeup lessons, you’ll be hungering for brains in no time.
Registration begins Oct. 1
We also need zombie bouncers.
