Going back to prom, circa the year 2000
Jul. 21—Emo Prom Night is Saturday at the Ro-Na
If you danced to My Chemical Romance or Fall Out Boy, spent a lot of time on Myspace to stay in contact with your favorite bands or spent hours curating the perfect CD or iPod playlist of Emo bands, there is an event for you this weekend called “Til Death Do Us Part — An Emo Prom Night.”
It is being put on at the historic Ro-Na theater in downtown Ironton on Saturday night by Charlies Wilds, the vocalist for the band Revision, Revised and creator of the annual Grovefest metal music festival…….
The sound equipment and the lighting rig will be the ones used at Grovefest last year.
“It’s gonna be good,” Wilds said.
And Wilds said while prom gear isn’t required, it is encouraged.
“I know a lot of the girls that bought prom tickets are wearing their black dresses,” he said. “But it can be anything. It is based around the Myspace era, because that’s when Emo was so prominent.”
