Saturday To-Do: Queer Prom

QUEER PROM: CASH BASH 2010
9 p.m., Henson's Warehouse. $10.

The Queer Prom's event page on Facebook makes a good case: “Really, if you ask yourself or anyone else ‘Did you have fun at your high school prom?' the answers are pretty much the same. A sigh, maybe a derisive snort, a laugh and a FUCK NO.” The organizers of the prom, who include supporters of the local LGBQT community, aim to right the wrongs of past proms with a big blowout at a warehouse owned by Henson Flye at 2301 Arch St. There'll be a lot of ironic celebrating of prom tradition — a photo backdrop, a vote for prom queen and king, a kissing booth (no one ever did that in high school outside of the movies, right?) — plus complimentary PGA punch and beer and food from Boulevard and Lilly's. And perhaps an even bigger draw, a sterling local line-up that includes Seth Baldy and Erin Lang, Blackbird Pie (C. Murdock Jones, Mike Motley and Ryan Hitt), erstwhile Soophie Nun Squader Anna Newell's band Physical Science, Showcase finalist Brother Andy & His Big Damn Mouth, Chris Denny and DJ Michael Inscoe. The proceeds benefit Cash Ashley, a local transgender man who's celebrating his 25th birthday and looking to get surgery. The idea is that this will be an annual event that benefits someone or some cause in the LGBQT every year.
