Saturday, April 16, 10pm, $5
Littlefield (622 Degraw St)
This prom season, bury high school in the past and come party with the skint. It’s prom without the pressure, not to mention all those added expenses like dinner, hairdressers, limos, and subsequent limo cleaning (after one too many glasses of punch). There will be music by DJ Steve Reynolds, balloons up the wazoo, $5–8 drink specials, and a virtual date photo booth where you can choose your own arm candy. More info
