Junior Prom | Too Weird To Live, Too Rare To Die Tour

This past Tuesday, February 11th, at the House of Blues in Houston, TX, Junior Prom had made its way into town.  The Brooklyn-based act opened a handful of shows to help support Panic! At The Disco’s ‘Too Weird To Live, Too Rare To Die! Tour’ along with The Colourist.  They began in Philadelphia and traveled along the country with the string of cities including: Atlanta, Miami, Orlando, Austin, and ended in Phoenix.  It was Junior Prom’s first visit to the populous city of Houston and the response was above and beyond.  Performing in front of a sold out show can be very intimidating for almost any artist and even more so for one that has not been around for more than two years, but the duo, Mark Solomich and Erik Ratensperger, showcased their recently released debut self-titled EP, with warming the crowd up to their charming modern 80s feel thrown in along with their infectious, unique styling of indie-pop rock by performing singles such as “Shelia, Put The Knife Down.”  They got the crowd from the floor up to the balcony dancing in no time and who could not help, but to move to their beats?  They were contagious!  It was safe to say they had the crowd ready to go for the night and was the safe and best decision for the tour to have picked Junior Prom to open.  Junior Prom’s self-titled debut EP is now available on iTunes and will be back for this year’s SXSW in Austin, TX.  In the meantime, be on the look-out for their full-length soon!
