Beat It, Purple Rain
Who would have won in a fight between Michael Jackson and Prince? In their prime, it might not have been the laughable sissy match you'd assume. It took strength and endurance to pull off MJ's stunning dance moves, and according to Charlie Murphy on Chappelle's Show, Prince had some serious skills on the basketball court--no telling how that physical capability might have translated to fisticuffs. Musically, though, the issue was settled in record sales, and there's a reason Michael is the King of Pop and Prince is just Prince. DJs Prince Klassen, Orion and Knuckle Rumbler will play originals and remixes of their songs during Raspberry Criminal: Michael Jackson Vs. Prince 10 p.m. Friday at the House of Blues Cambridge Room, 2200 N. Lamar St. Call 214-978-BLUE or visit houseofblues.com for tickets ($10 to $12) and more information.
