Rock 'n' Roll Prom: Monarques, Pony Village, the Cry, DJ Cooky Parker, DJ Hanukkah Miracle
600 E Burnside St.
[PRETTY IN PUNK] Because now you’re older and wiser, and you realize you should have chosen Duckie over Blaine, this is your chance to right those prom-night wrongs. You’re no longer ashamed to buy your dress from a thrift shop, you’re old enough to get drunk legally and with some dignity, and now that you live in Portland, you know your date won’t mind riding bikes back home afterward. And unlike your first prom, which likely featured Boyz II Men on heavy rotation, you’ll be rocking out to the wholesome sounds of power-pop-punk outfit the Cry!, indie rockers Pony Village and Portland’s premiere proponents of doo-wop pop, Monarques, who will be playing ’50s and ’60s covers all night long (last year’s set included everything from James Brown to the Zombies). Plus, the odds of this night ending in sex are infinitely higher.
