Rusel Parish, a Michael Jackson artist and now leader and spokesperson for the newly arrived Cult of Michael Jackson, is opening a chapel for worshipers on North 6th this Friday, “despite the tragic passing of the object of its obsession.”
With his “years of experience and study working in the image of Michael Jackson through paintings, drawings, and sculpture,” Parish hopes to recruit “believers” to help turn the late singer’s songs into scripture, spread the love, and “move forward with plans” that he’s been working on since 2008. Those plans, I hope, are not apocalyptic, and rather focus on making the world a better place for you and for me.
The Cult of Michael Jackson chapel, located at 168 North 6th Street, will open this Friday, 9/11, at 6pm and stick around through October. Like every good cult’s chapel opening in Williamsburg, they’ll be hosting an after party. It’s at Hope Lounge, with BBQ & drink specials from 9-11. It’s gonna be thrilling.
