August 8: The Prince and Michael Jackson Experience

Michael Jackson is often referred to as the "King of Pop," but could another '80s star lay claim to that title? Tonight you can attend a pop royalty face-off at The Howard Theater, as fans show their loyalty to M.J. and "The Purple One." The Prince and Michael Jackson Experience starts at 11 p.m., when DJ Dave Paul of San Francisco will spin hits, rare tracks, remixes and more songs by both legendary musicians.

August 9: Peter Murphy w/ My Jerusalem

Peter Murphy, also known as "The Godfather of Goth", will perform at The State Theatre in Falls Church tomorrow night. Murphy was lead vocalist of the late '70s English post-punk gothic band Bauhaus.

Indie rock band My Jerusalem will open the show at 8 p.m.
