PODCAST: The Punk Rock Prom
We get info and tunes from The Silent Press
So, you're the type to say, "Prom is such a drag." Well, maybe you're right. But here comes the Punk Rock Prom, whose organizers promise a looser event on Saturday, neither chaperoned by the teachers you've grown to hate nor filled with the sounds of music you despise.
The music part may be a matter of opinion. Some posters on starcitypunk.com's message boards are questioning the credentials of something called a Punk Rock Prom that has no punk bands. The emo-word is being tossed around.
Roanoke band and show organizers The Silent Press address that issue and more.
In case you didn't know, we've been doing these podcasts for a little while now. What are they? They're like radio shows in mp3 format. You can right click and hit "save target as" to download them to your computer or mp3 player, or just stream them by hitting the pointy thing in the RealPlayer box above right. If you want to get with the leading edge tech stuff, you can drag the XML button above left onto your news reader.
Host: Tad Dickens
Producer: Seth M. Gitner
