We Love the ‘80s

The ’80s brought Reaganomics, Rubik’s Cube, New Coke, Madonna, the end of the Cold War, high-tops, Swatches, and teased hair. They're all awesome, so it’s no wonder that local indie record store Sweat Records holds an annual ode to the decade with its ’80s Prom. Already in its seventh year, the nostalgic trip promises plenty of clichés mixed with hipster aesthetics at the Vagabond. DJ Hottpants and WVUM's Laura of Miami will spin the tunes to make your rump move, while Ray Milian will take charge of the decks in the main room. Since no prom is complete without a live band, The State Of will play plenty of cover songs to transport you back to when the Internet was a thing nerds played with.

Have your limo pull up at 9:30 p.m., because that’s when the celebration begins.
