Did you ever want to relive the latter part of high school, but with all the booze you can drink and real rock bands? Well, it's a date.
The Rock 'n' Roll Prom on March 28 will get you the kicks you missed while you were busy trying to impress the cool crowd or consumed with the girl or boy you were sure to marry.
Perhaps the best part of this prom, however, will be the music.
Local favorites Lovely Locks and The Wave Slaves will be joined by Atlanta ska group The Hermits of Suburbia for the night's musical feast.
About five months ago, during a Wave Slaves practice, drummer Nicole Edge and bandmates were looking for ideas for upcoming shows. A quick call to friends in both bands, as well as a talk with The Jinx, put the ocean in motion.
"We do classic surf rock," Edge said. "It reminds me of something played at prom in the '50s or '60s, which it probably was. We just got this idea of playing this goofy prom-themed event. That's it. Just one of those funny ideas you discuss when you're sitting around drinking."
In addition to live music, a photo booth, set up for instant gratification to show off your night's attire, will be handled by local blogger/photographer Petee Worrell.
Of course, no prom evening would be complete without a king and queen. Nominations for the first Rock 'n' Roll Prom King and Queen were submitted via Facebook, and as is tradition, the winners will enjoy a public crowning and possibly a dance to consummate the coronation.
"The music is going to be all over the place," Edge said. "We (Wave Slaves) can play everything from punked out crazy surf rock to sleepwalk, which we'll make the prom king and queen dance to. And there will be lots of drinking and partying."
If you're 21 or 71, get ready to relive your glory, or inglorious, days of high school - complete with awkward dancing and over-drinking. Or, if you're looking for fun date, get dressed up and make it a night.
Cover at the door is $5, or $3 if you come dressed in formal attire, which could or could not include a tuxedo T-shirt. Bad prom dresses will unquestionably be welcomed, as well.
