What About Prom, Blane?


Let’s face it — for most of us, the high school prom was a lot of buildup to a pretty mediocre night involving cheesy corsages, Jessica McClintock dresses, and awkward picture-taking at someone’s parents’ house. This Tuesday night, recreate the universal teen rite of passage on your own terms at the Prom You Were Always Promised, a night of awesome music and updated formal wear at the Music Hall of Williamsburg. SNL funnyman Jason Sudeikis will host, tunes will be provided by DJs like Yeasayer and Chris Baio of Vampire Weekend, and Prom King and Queen will be chosen by a raffle. Already sounding a lot better than crepe paper in your high school gym, right? The best part of all is that proceeds from the sale of the $25 tickets benefit 826NYC, the amazing nonprofit writing center for New York City students affiliated with the Brooklyn Superhero Supply Co. in Park Slope. Hurry and buy one now because we’re pretty sure you only get one chance to relive the prom.
