Under The Sea With My Morning Jacket

A question a lot of people get asked but always have a hard time answering is "What makes you love (insert band name here)?" The obvious answer is because you like the way they sound, but what really makes you truly love a band? What sets them apart? For me, it's the way the Flaming Lips put on a show, the way Phish can noodle for a half hour without ever getting boring, or a Black Crowes impromptu jam on a Bob Marley tune, or the passion Pearl Jam displays day in and day out. Well claimers, here is a reason to fall in love with My Morning Jacket: they're giving you the prom you've always wanted!

The band just announced on their website that "For all of you who missed your prom back in 1956 or 1986 or 2006 for that matter, we will be hosting the 1st annual MMJ 2 night prom, March 6th and 7th, at the fabulous, prom-ready, 40 watt club in Athens! The first time we walked thru those hallowed 40 Watt doors we said to ourselves, "this place looks perfect for a prom!" And now the dream will be a reality. The theme is a futuristic/retro under the sea vibe - costumes (tuxes, suits, robots, mermaid and lobster costumes, anything prom/ocean related) are not only encouraged - they are MANDATORY!!! NO ONE will be admitted without proper attire! There will be cake, balloons, fishnets, classic cars, chaperones, spankings, and a whole lotta shakin goin on - 2007 style up in this bitch ya'll. Come prepared to dance the night away, and make up for all the proms you missed..."

That, is an act of love. Now, like back in high school, if I could just get a date for it!
