Prom is a magical, tension-filled, crucial time in the lives of young teenagers on television. In the real world, it is remembered by many as that night you negotiated a curfew past midnight, spent a lot of money on an itchy dress or a rented tux, and danced barefoot on the hardwood floor of your school gym or at the hotel party room. We promise this Saturday night's prom will be far more grown up.
Like any prom, this one has a theme: Dias de los Muertos. So any way you can work the theme into your outfit will win points. Later in the evening prom king and queen will be crowned by a panel of judges from the MNRoller Girls.
Practice dancing in your heels and formal dress shoes beforehand as well; tonight will be loaded (not just alcoholically) with great musical acts. The Fillmores will be punk jamming throughout the night and as well as playing some classic prom hits. Popsters the Debut, '80s-tinged hip hoppers MC/VL, and punk rockers Bouncer Fighter will also provide ambience, with Sharp Teeth, Fuck Knights, the Shortcuts, and A Paper Cup Band also slated to perform.
The unforgettable night starts at 9 p.m. with an entrance fee of $6. The event is 21+, so no emo teenagers allowed.
