We are two weeks away from BK LOVES MJ & DO THE RIGHT THINK Block Party. Spread the word. It’s going down on Saturday, August 29th from 12noon to 6pm at Stuyvesant Ave (Between Lexington & Quincy) in Bed-Stuy Do-Or-Die. With @DJSpinna on the ones and twos.
On Sunday, August 30, I’ll be at Icon Studios in Chicago, just up the road from Gary. I want to tell you what it was like to work with Michael on some of his most iconic projects: EO, Bad, Dangerous, HIStory. We’ll even dig into a place he called Neverland – a place he trusted me to help create.
I hope you join me in Michael’s hometown, on his birthday weekend. Will You Be There?
Hear things you have never heard.
See things you have never seen.
Learn things you never knew.

MOONWALKER: MICHAEL JACKSON BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION
Celebrate the King of Pop’s birthday (a few hours early!) with this rare screening of Moonwalker.
**$100 Cash prize for best Michael Jackson impersonator or moonwalk**
Moonwalker, also known as Michael Jackson: Moonwalker, is an American anthology film released in 1988 by singer Michael Jackson.
Rather than featuring one continuous narrative, the film is a collection of short films about Jackson, several of which are long-form music videos from Jackson’s Bad album. The film is named after the dance technique known as the moonwalk, which was one of his trademark moves. The name of the dance move was dubbed by the media, not by Jackson himself; however, he did choose the title of the film himself. Moonwalker was a success at the box office, making a total of $67,000,000 worldwide.
The release of Moonwalker was originally scheduled to coincide with Jackson’s 1987 album, Bad. During the theatrical release of Moonwalker, Jackson was also embarking on the Bad world tour, his first tour as a solo performer. The film was released theatrically in Europe and South America, but Warner Bros. canceled plans for a Christmas 1988 theatrical release in the United States. Moonwalker was instead released on home video in the United States and Canada on January 10, 1989, just as the Bad tour finished. (His tour was supposed to finish sooner, but had been postponed due to some vocal strain, so it went on until the last week of January 1989.) The video had sold more than 800,000 copies in the U.S. by April 17, 1989.
August 29, 9:00pm at the Hayden Orpheum Picture Palace, Walsh 5 Auditorium. Purchase tickets here.
