Aside from its New Years Eve celebration, the Rock & Roll Prom is one of the biggest annual events at the Way Out Club. This themed party nearly always fills the venue to capacity, as patrons come out from all corners of the city, all outfitted in their best prom dresses and suits and looking for a good time. This years sub-theme is "zombies," so expect some extra bloody pageantry and pale-faced hilarity. The entertainment lineup includes favorites of the club, like the horn-heavy psychobilly of the Devil Baby Freakshow and the shambolic roots rock of Tijuana Hercules. Velcro Lewis & His 100 Proof Band and Alas, Poor Yorick round out the bill.
