Saturday To-Do: Queer Prom 2 - "Dirty South"

QUEER PROM 2: DIRTY SOUTH
8 p.m., ACAC. 8 p.m. $10.

After an inaugural year packed out a private, albeit enormous, loft in Little Rock, the organizers of the straight-friendly Queer Prom have decided to up and move their now-annual fund-raising party to the public space at the downtown ACAC space. What to expect? This being a "dirty South" prom, look out for people boozing it up while dressed in everything from hay-stuffed overall dresses to knock-off gold grills.

Also, in addition to shows from three local drag queens and a DJ set from local poet/music guru Michael Inscoe, the prom offers up old-time music from Montgomery Trucking, reverbed country and western from Mandy McBryde and the Unholy Ghost (who may be coming off of a win from the Musicians Showcase finals the night before) and rowdy roots folk from The Reparations.

Also in the mix: a rumored creamed corn fight. Dang it, boy.

The night requires you be 18 to enter, 21 to drink. All genders and sexual persuasions are invited.
