More Michael Jackson tributes planned in Baltimore

michael jacksonThe wave of Michael Jackson tributes isn't over yet.

Last night, radio station 92Q held a Jackson candlelight vigil outside its offices. Hundreds of MJ fans turned out to show their support for the late pop star.

Here are some photos from the vigil.

Thursday, Bourbon Street (316 Guilford Ave.) is throwing a College Night Thriller party, complete with Jackson videos and music.

Anyone that shows up wearing a white glove will be eligible to win door prizes, bar tabs, etc. ...

Instead of a moment of silence to honor Jackson, there will be a moment of noise, said manager Sam Chaney. I like the sound of that. 

The drink specials aren't bad either -- $18 all-you-can-drink (only $12 with military or student ID). 

Also, Fletcher's (701 S. Bond St.) is also hosting an all-Jackson dance party Friday, complete with $2 drinks and no cover charge until 10:30 p.m. The DJs are Mike Mills and Craig Boarman.

Both events are 18+.

There are also a lot of people SICK of others citing rumors and media hype to tear down the name of one of history's most talented [and misunderstood] entertainers. Just let the man rest in peace! If you didn't like him, too bad for you--didn't your mother ever tell you, if you don't have something nice to say don't say it at all?

We enjoyed and are thankful for Michael's gifts and we don't want you spoiling our memories of him!

mackenzie - my mama believed where's smoke there's fire.

ah, she doesn't want her memories spoiled by the truth, poor baby. just because he was able to pay to beat the wrap doesn't change the truth.

Angela Smith - Michael was a HOT entertainer! - yeah, 20 years and several crotch grabs ago

Michael Jackson touched us all... In so many ways.

These aren’t Michael Jackson that I think are worth a listen

Paul McCartney - In Liverpool

Kevin Ayers ( with Featuring guitar 'duel' between Ollie Halsall (Rutles) and Andy Summers (Police) - Didn't Feel Lonely

George Harrison & Fatso - The Pirate Song

Interesting videos but why?

Is the McCartney song on CD?

This made my day.

Michael: if you're reading this... Know that everything will be alright. You're still in my heart and you're an exceptional musician... I heart you. Hold your head high my love and do your thing. See you in NY and you're forgiven by me... See you in March and next week in NY Babe!!! IL09"

Too soon?
