Can't make it out to Neverland to see Michael Jackson's body? Or perhaps you'd just prefer to appreciate Jackson in a less ghoulish way than looking at a corpse? Either way, The House of Dang is the place to be tonight.
The boutique shop will screen the King of Pop's 1988 straight-to-video feature film Moonwalker, not to be confused with the awesome Sega Genesis game of the same name, at 8 p.m. tonight. Following the movie, you can relive your dance-zombie nightmares and wish all over again that your parents had bought you that red leather jacket during the "Thriller" video--presumably not this version. It's free and BYOB.
MJ will receive a fitting send-off from this week's Dallas Observer music section, due out tonight or tomorrow, depending on where you pick up your copy. Robert Wilonsky explores Jackson's connections to the area, Pete Freedman ponders the area's reactions to his death and local musicians share their Jackson remembrances.
