2nd Annual SqueezeBot Prom

My actual prom was horrible. Thanks to the boys (and gal) in SqueezeBot, I might have a chance to do prom right. Long time 37Flood favorites SqueezeBot will do prom right Saturday, June 11 at 8 p.m. at the Swiss Hall, which banjo-player Mick Sullivan assures me is where your prom SHOULD have been.

If you haven't caught this unique quartet yet they are worth renting a tux for. The band consists of Todd Hildreth (Java Men) on accordian, Mick Sullivan (Fire the Saddle, Slow Charlestown) on banjo, Meg Samples (Deloreans, Louisville Leopard Percussionists assistant director) on drums, and Brandon Johnson holds up the low end on the tuba, although rumor has it he will have help with that task from a special guest.

Tickets are $20 for a couple or $10 stag. And, yes, there will be a king and queen, so dress to impress.

SqueezeBot also has a weekly gig at the Nach Bar. This will be the fifth year they have played Sundays in the summer at the Nach Bar. The shows are free and run all summer.

So, find a date and hope she (or he) doesn't start dating your best friend days before, which is what happened to me at the prom I will attempt to erase completely from my memory on June 11th.
