A List of Michael Jackson Commemoration Events in San Francisco Today

Some poor employee at mobile entertainment company Predicto Mobile was asked to come up with 10 text-friendly Michael Jackson songs to be complete asses/butcher classic lyrics honor the pop star's legacy on the one-year anniversary of his death today. See the unfortunate list in its entirety here, but here's a sample:

ABC EZ as 123 o simple as doe ray me abc baby u and me girl

Cuz this is thrilla thrilla nite there ain't no 2nd chance against the thing w/40 eyz, grl

Luckily there are better options for celebrating the King of Pop that don't include getting swiftly kicked out of your social circle. So brush up on the moonwalk and dust off that red leather jacket, because if you can't keep up with the itinerary of MJ events we've compiled for Friday, there's no one to blame but the boogie.

8 a.m. -  Wake up to CBS's Early Show morning tribute, with performances by an interesting mix of musicians, including Christina Aguilera, LL Cool J and Marc Anthony. Ah, well. Not everyone can be pop royalty.

Noon - See the Michael Jackson art and photos on display all day at the San Francisco Art Exchange gallery near Union Square on Geary Street. The striking picture above is part of the collection.

4 - 7:30 p.m. -  Watch or join one of the six Michael Jackson flash mobs happening around the city. See the full schedule here, as well as online dance tutorials. It doesn't beat these prisoners doing "Thriller," but then again, not much does.   

9 p.m. -  Shake your body down to the ground to 14-piece Michael Jackson tribute band Foreverland's Moonwalker show at the Regency Ballroom. Tickets are on sale through Ticketmaster for $40 and will also be available at the door. Don't leave home without your sequined glove, because there will be a costume contest.  

Hope 2 c u there, bb!

  • U2 @ SAP Center in San Jose
    Last night U2 performed the first U.S. date of it’s Innocence + Experience tour at SAP Center in San Jose. All four band members were present despite recent injuries sustained by both Bono and Edge. The sold out show took audience members on a walk down memory lane as the band revisited their roots. The innovative stage and lighting used gave the arena show an intimate feel, and engaged audience members in all sections of the venue. Photographs by Sugarwolf.
  • Bay to Breakers 2015 - NSFW
    The 103rd annual Bay to Breakers 12K race was packed on Sunday despite the cold weather. With a starting point a few blocks from The Embarcadero, people dressed as bananas, Elvis and everything in between ran west through the city and finished at the Great Highway where breakers crash onto Ocean Beach.
