“Anotherloverholenyohead” is a track from Prince’s eighth studio album “Parade: Music From The Motion Picture Under The Cherry Moon” released on March 31, 1986. The instrumental track was recorded at Sunset Sound in Hollywood, CA on December 16, 1985, and features Prince playing nearly all of the instruments. It does also feature horn players Eric Leeds and Atlanta Bliss (on saxophone and trumpet, respectively) and well as background vocals by Susannah Melvoin of The Family (also Prince’s then-girlfriend). The song was released as the third single from “Parade” on July 2, 1986 b/w the album cut “Girls And Boys” on the US release (the UK pressings feature “I Wanna Be Your Lover”). At the time of its release it will only be a modest chart hit, peaking at #18 on the Billboard R&B singles chart and #63 on the Hot 100. Though over time it has become a major fan favorite both in its original version and in live concert performances. This re-edit of “Anotherloverholenyohead” is by DJ Dave Paul. Text by Jeff Harris.

What Time Is It?!

Time Out New York knows what time it is! Six things to do this winter. The Prince and Michael Experience at Brooklyn Bowl, just under Jay-Z at Carnegie Hall and just above the Hot Chocolate Festival. A good place to be 🙂

The Ladies Love The 80s

January 22, 2012

Thank you Madrone Art Bar, the city of San Francisco, all the fans of 80s music and our friends. Usually on a rainy night in SF it can be slow, but Friday night was crackin’ for our 80s party. If you thought our Prince and MJ parties get packed, watch out – cause That 80s Show is getting close! The highlight of the night, everyone going crazy to Run DMC’s It’s Tricky. Photos from the night are here. Every 3rd Friday of the month.

Chicago Rocks!

With the cold weather I expected a slow night but it ended up being one of our best turnouts for Chicago. Prince and MJ fans in the Midwest got heart! Anyone that stands in line in below freezing weather waiting to get into a packed Prince and Michael party has my respect. Thank you Beauty Bar, the city of Chicago, Marcus & Ed, and all the fans and friends that came out to support. Photos from the event can be viewed here. The Prince and Michael Experience will return to Chicago on Saturday, March 24th. Mark your calendars.

Our monthly PR+MJ party in SF

January 10, 2012

How do you know when you’ve over-promoted? When the venue hits capacity at 9:30pm and people have to wait in line for 30-45 minutes. Thank you to all that came out and thank you to all that were patient. It was a wonderful night. Photos from the party can be viewed here.

Due to the overwhelming popularity of our Prince and MJ monthly residency at Madrone Art Bar in San Francisco we have made a change. The party will now begin an hour earlier. Every 1st Sat of the month we will begin at 8pm, $5 at the door.

An inside look at people in the entertainment industry. From doormen, dj’s and promoters to venue owners, managers, and booking agents. In their own words find out how they got where they are, and where they are going.

I’m working on a series of interviews with people in the industry called How I Got Here. The interview is conducted via email. I would send you questions and then from your answers I would also send some follow up questions. 2-3 photos of you would be needed to go with the article. If you feel you are qualified and would like to be interviewed send me an email with maybe a paragraph telling me a bit about yourself and what you do –

already scheduled to be interviewed:
Robbie Kowal of Sunset Promotions (San Francisco)
DJ Z-Trip (Los Angeles)
Anthony Sanchez of Runaway Productions (Portland)
Mike Maietta of CEG Presents (New York)
Gabe Gurrola of Kons Photography + Design (Portland)
Michael Krouse of Madrone Art Bar (San Francisco)
