Yep, it's prom season. And while you may "Whatever" at the whole schmaltzy high school gala thing, you gotta admit, it's kinda cool to get dressed up in a bad tux or gown and shake your ass. (Seriously, would movies like NapoleonDynamite and Never Been Kissed have been half as cool without those great prom scenes?)Today, you're invited to join the local queens of kick-ass, the Houston Roller Derby, for their Dirty Derby Prom-o-Rama. Throw on some prom gear (say, a powder-blue tux with ruffles or a big poofy dress) and get down to Ceeplus and the House of Bad Knives, who, along with the Medicine Show, will provide your righteous prom soundtrack. "You can also have your prom picture taken, and you can vote on a prom queen," says Knocky Balboa of Roller Derby. Man, if only our prom had been this cool.
