Like, Oh My Gawd! It's an '80s Prom Party!

— by Caroline on Crack

Forget all those other ’80s prom parties you’ve attended in the past, the ’80s Prom Party at Cooper Studios sounds like it’s going to be the most awesome one at which you’ll ever do the Roger Rabbit. A live ’80s cover band will inspire you to resurrect all the ’80s dance moves in your repertoire as they play fave hits from Prince, Madonna, and Bon Jovi, to name a few. And you’ve also got a U2 tribute band and a dj to keep you doing the Molly Ringwald all. Night. Long. All niight! All niight! All night long!

Dan Silberstein of CozmoCard and Drink:Eat:Play: used to throw ’80s prom parties just for his lucky friends, but now he’s going big with this event at a 20,000-square-foot venue in Downtown L.A. You need to go big, too, and I’m not just talkin’ hair. Radical ’80s prom attire is mandatory as there will be a prom photographer on hand to commemorate the occasion. And unlike your own prom in the days of yore, this one will have an open bar.

So get your pals on board, your extra-strength Aqua Net ready and fluff up those ruffles, it’s time to get into the groove. I so want to dress like Madonna during her “Like a Virgin” MTV performance. That can double as a prom dress, right?

Here are some ’80s prom pics to inspire you.

General admission tickets are going for $50 while VIP (which includes early admission, a VIP lounge, shorter bar lines, food from e3rd Steakhouse and Lounge and gift bags) is $100. Or, you can get discounted tickets through GoldStar for $35-$75.
