PRETTY IN PUNK
Didn't go to your high school prom or simply want a do-over? OK Prom promises to be an excellent cross between Pretty in Pink and 10 Things I Hate About You with plenty of spiked punch and a ginormous roster of bands such as Jason Trachtenburg's new indie jazz band the Pendulum Swings, punk band Donner Party Picnic, and the Beatles-influenced the Beets. Of course, a prom wouldn't be complete without the crowning of Prom King and Queen via a couples' dance contest. Plus, a photographer will be on hand to capture all your sweet memories. The only rules are as follows: "No BYOB. No street clothes. No going stag. No Auto-Tune."
