The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum has a Michael Jackson Weekend starting on June 25 (the first anniversary of his death) and running through June 27.
There's lots going on, including movie screenings, dance instructions, lectures, and a performance by R&B singer Angie Stone.
You can find the schedule here, but highlights include:
—Screenings of Jackson's Rock Hall inductions as both a solo artist and with the Jackson 5
—Talks in the Legends of Rock Michael Jackson exhibit inside the Ahmet Ertegun Main Exhibit Hall (um, did you know there was such a thing there?)
—A dance party, where hopefully a group of people will recreate the "Thriller" dance like all those guys did in prison a few year ago
Be sure to wear a single sequined glove, because nobody else will probably think of it. And you'll look totally awesome. —Michael Gallucci (follow me on Twitter @mgallucci)
