Immediate Party: Hillbilly Prom this Friday with These United States
IT’S ALL HAPPENING, oh my GAH!
Here is a list of all the things that are currently “happening:”
The legendary ancestor of Johnny Appleseed and his merry band of misfits, These United States, are coming to Colorado through the snow and the ice, having just played 7 mythical and fantastical SXSW shows and a WOXY session, wild happenings only to be uttered in the folklore of future generations
Notorious barn-burners, the Lurleens, are breaking through their fog of methamphetamines and old-folks’ home groupies to reunite for one night and one night only
Donnybrook was just deemed Best Blog by Westword. Couldn’t the general public have figured out how cool we were in the late ’70s? when we were shrugging off culture with Gang of Four, had tighter pants, didn’t have cocaine habits, and weren’t hoary and mainstream yet
It’s a gigantic and crazy fucking snowstorm; perhaps God enjoys metaphors
the Bartender, Angora Holly Polo, and various others are gathering their thoughts on SXSW like a billowing force of energy with which to execute powerful mind-blows of journalistic brilliance. SXSW in your face! Expect travel diaries in the coming days
The following five weighty and powerful Denver institutions are combining forces to throw a party: the Donnybrook Writing Academy, I Am Fuel/You Are Friends, Gigbot, Cause=Time, and DenveReverb.com
It’s Angora Holly Polo’s day of birth in her 26th of years.
Friday, March 27th. At the Hi-Dive. What better way to celebrate all of the above than with an old-fashioned Hillbilly Prom. Wha?
Just come. See a rowdy show and drink too much, and then lose your virginity in the back seat of your car. Come wearing your finest trashy prom attire. Hair extensions, press on nails, suits with the sleeves cut off, tuxedo t-shirts. Friday, March 27th at the Hi-Dive. Poster by Gigbot’s Todd Roeth, created lovingly while driving through New Mexico:
