Do you enjoy attending school dances in general?
Also why is this posted in the rumors/wish list section?
well, it depends. if you have a boyfriend/girlfriend, you might not want to leave them behind.
however, once you go to college, you'll forget about everything that happened in high school, including prom(s).
i doubt you'll forget seeing portishead and kraftwerk play back to back.
prom is overrated. Coachella...
also, keep in mind the mainstream pop music you will hear at your prom. lets see, last year, at my senior prom, i know we had...
blink 182 - all the small things (i guess thas the name of it)
usher - yeah
lil jon - get low
and of course about 20-30 other poprap jingles that made me want to kick a baby.
think of it like this: Soulja Boy VS It Could Be Sweet
1. Run to a nice patch of grass on the fields and lay face down.
2. Tilt your head ninety degrees with your forehead temple resting on your forearm and watch people through the vision pocket right underneath your armpit hair.
3. Do this for a few hours until you get comfortable.
A Daft Punk thread containing 'nothing of substance'. How bout that.
1. Someone mentioned it before but in 6 months when your in college you'll realize everything you did in high school is more or less meaningless.
2. As mentioned before the music at Coachella will be waaaaayyyyy better.
3.(very important) If you're worried about not getting laid on prom night no worries. There will be thousands more, better looking potential hook-ups at Coachella. Your chances only go up if you're camping onsite as well.
Just some things to consider.
Another option would be going on to Coach. on Friday, Sunday or both and still making it to your prom on Sat.
Either way I'm sure you'll have a good time. Good luck making your decision.
IF you have a lot of close friends at your school, and they will all be going to the prom, i say go. if you are they type that has hung out with this same group of people for many years...this will be one of your last opportunities to see them all and party together. everything changes after high school. if you have enjoyed your high school experience thus far, don't miss your prom. you only have one, and there will be many concerts, and more coachellas in your future.
however, if you are unhappy in high school, or more independent and are not close to your classmates, by all means go to coachella.
coachella > prom.
I never went to my prom though so I don't know (or care) what I was missing.
Bjork doing Biophilia, 6/2 Hollywood Palladium, Los Angeles, CA
Outside Lands, 8/9-11 Golden Gate Park, San Francisco, CA
--almost, almost, almost the real thing
Go to Coachella, it will sound way more badass in the future.
Did you go to your Junior Prom?
Both, trust me, you can go to both.
Nope, not a single dance of any kind.
Coachella will be one of the best weekends of your life, giving you the opportunity to expand your musical horizons and meet exciting new people.
Prom will give you the chance to watch drunk teenagers simulate anal sex to Top 40 rap music.
The choice is yours.
if your date is into anal: Prom
if not: Coachella
EDIT: Just noticed this is a girl asking the question.
Edit #2: Reasoning still applies.
