On Friday night, three very imaginary bands are playing what is billed as “Sweet Dreams Prom 2009” at the Crocodile. It’s headlined by We Wrote the Book on Connectors, a fun rock band that will write a song about you if you pay them $18. They’re a riot live, which their set consists of playing a bunch of silly but catchy pop rock songs.
They explain about this night:
Every so often this town needs to dress up, grab a date, throw some salt on the dance floor and get down like it was high school all over again. Only this time your high school is the Crocodile, and your lunch tickets get you PBR.
We Wrote the Book on Connectors, M. Bison, and Tennis Pro are ready to serve you from the punchbowl of good times at this once in a lifetime event full of formal wear, music, hairstyles from yester-year, and the sexiest chaperones you’ll ever call “coach”. Come on down to the Croc for a Prom that would make a wallflower pull down their pants and dance.
All these bands have been a staple of the Seattle music scene and are known for putting on incredibly enthusiastic and entertaining performances. The music is catchy fun, and they’re not afraid to have a good time on stage. Each band will be playing a few nostalgic hits to share with you a big ‘ol good time and celebrate returning to the Crocodile. So grab your gal, your guy, or your parents, join corsage covered hands on the pedestal of rock and smile for your prom photo (yes there will be prom photos). No expense has been spared to blow out a Prom with all the fixin’s. This show promises to get you laid, even if we have to do it ourselves.
WE guarantees their $18 songwriting service, so I full expect them to stay with their word in their promise for this show.
Even better: they are joined by two bands we love at TIG: Tennis Pro and M. Bison.
Even better than that (betterer?): We have a pair of tickets to give away to one of our readers. All you need to do is e-mail email@example.com before 5pm on Thursday, July 16 (sorry for the short-notice) with “WE Prom” in the subject line and we’ll draw someone’s name at random. The cover is $10, so if you win, you can get you and your date in for free and you’ll save the money to spend on drinks at the Crocodile bar and give the bartenders a deserved tip (which will make you look even better to your date).
I just wonder if WE will be attempting this song (again):[video:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tjccdqlp5Mw]
