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.
Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
