JOHNNY SHOWCASE'S PROM FOREVER: A Benefit for CJD Research

  • World Cafe Live 3025 Walnut Street Philadelphia, PA, 19104 United States

Some day, someone will write a thinkpiece about how two of the most beloved bands in Philadelphia perform in one type of drag or another, come straight out of the city's theatre scene, and have managed to completely circumvent the otherwise fairly ubiquitous system of play/record/tour/get boring. Or, we could just say that and leave it at that. Either way, Johnny Showcase, like their sister Martha Graham Cracker, is a thing to behold. Both groups major in capital-e Entertainment and after a few years of being the only two in the boat, could be gaining fellow passengers. Johnny Showcase's Prom Forever is evidence of just that: An entire prom-themed night (proper attire is encouraged) with a cast of friends, including Birdie Busch, Nik Greeley, Red40 and DJ Robert Drake. Leave your thinkpiece at home.

PROM FOREVER is in Memory of John Sweeny, and proceeds will benefit The CJD Foundation.
