WAM! Prom 2: Electric Boogaloo

New Yorkers: next Friday the 13 (ooOoo!), consider heading to the Bowery Poetry Club for the WAM! Prom 2 fundraiser/rager. WAM stands for Women, Action, and Media, and the party will be like this:

Last year was the '80s dance party of the season. This year, it's a hip-hop disco extravaganza — even our theme is a kickass mashup!

From 10 p.m. until you can't take it anymore, WAM! Prom 2 will be an even rowdier shake-a-thon than last year. More mashups! Wilder costumes! Bring your friends and let's make this Friday the 13th the best ever.

$15 at the door for an outstanding cause.

Spooky!

Update: And here's a sample of what they're playing (thanks, Amanda) — "Single Ladies' Thing," a Lauren Hill, Kool & the Gang, Beyonce, and Lil Wayne mashup.

Thanks for the plug! I'll be one of the DJs during the party. The other, Marc Faletti, is an original mash-up artist who will be debuting over an hour of new mash-ups. He's released one as a teaser:

It's a mash-up of Lauryn Hill, Beyonce, and Kool & the Gang.

Here's the promo video, which has a portion of another mash-up, along with some awesome dance moves you can practice at home:

Danzig!

Would really like to go to this but I'll only have been a NY transplant for 5 days by that point and I don't think I can get a costume together by that point!

@Danzig! - You should go not in costume, WAM! is a really great group, and the Bowery Poetry Club is an excellent place too (even you don't like Slam poetry, which can I be honest, I kind of hate? But they have lots of other great stuff too).

Darn, too far to travel...

Can I just say that I HAD to click into this due to the use of "Electric Boogaloo" in the title??

I've been adding that after EVERY usage of "somethingsomethingsomething 2" (electric boogaloo!) for years, and even have my hubby doing it and then smacking his head since he does it without thinking now. :D

(why yes, I am OCD, thanks!)
