9:30 Club Remembers MJ Via Dance Party

Michael Jackson's 1983 music video for "Thriller" ran more than 13 minutes and is widely considered one of the greatest music videos ever produced. It was inducted into the Library of Congress in 2009.

Michael Jackson would be 55 on Aug. 29. Instead of mourning the late King of Pop, each year hundreds of MJ fans celebrate his life with a dance party.

The 9:30 Club (815 V St. NW) is throwing its fourth annual Michael Jackson Dance Party at 7 p.m. on what would have been Jackson's birthday. All of MJ’s biggest hits will be featured, along with remixes, rare cuts and videos of the man himself and the entire Jackson family.

Hosted by DJ Dredd and featuring Grap Luva and video mixer John Bowen (aka Video Killers), the event is billed as D.C.’s biggest Michael Jackson-themed dance party. Granted, it's the second MJ-themed event hosted by the 9:30 Club this summer. The venue also brought in Who’s Bad: The Ultimate Michael Jackson Tribute Band in June, which featured impersonators along with music and dancing.

Part of the proceeds from August's event will be donated to the Duke Ellington School of the Arts, a D.C. public school that provides its students with professional arts training and help preparing for college.

Tickets are available at Ticketfly for $15.
