Saturday · March 23, 2019

This event is 21 and over

Madonna versus Britney!
Duran Duran versus Backstreet Boys!
Run DMC vs Notorious B.I.G.!
And Prince versus, uh, more Prince!

So are you gonna Bust a Move, or are you Livin' La Vida Loca?

The Decade of Decadence takes on the Dawn of the Internet in an all-out dance battle for MUSIC VIDEO SUPREMACY. Are you Team 1984, or Team 1999? And since "1999" is technically a 1980s video, how do we handle THAT?!? So come on out, whether you want Brass Monkey, Funky Cold Medina or Gin & Juice...

Come boogie down to 20 years of the best dance videos on a night to remember, courtesy of VJ Stephen Pitalo and Music Video Time Machine: 80s VS 90s!
