WE'RE HOSTING OUR SECOND ANNUAL BUFFY PROM - THIS TIME IN NYC (!!!) BECAUSE WE LOVE YOU, AND BECAUSE WE ALL WANT TO DANCE (AGAIN!) TO 90S MUSIC ALL NIGHT!
Your hosts Jenny Owen Youngs and Kristin Russo will MC the evening with live music from Jenny & special guests, plus all your favorite DJ’d 90s jams for dancing, dancing, and more dancing! There will be a photo booth for prom photos, swag bags, raffles, and more!
The event is open to all ages, doors will open at 7pm, and there will be a cash bar for those who are 21+, plus fun snacks and sweets!
Prom tickets will be $75 per person and every ticket includes a complimentary drink ticket.
This year we will also be hanging out for a brunch on the Sunday after prom (March 10). While tickets last, you can get the combo deal (prom ticket + brunch), and then join Kristin & Jenny at The Ace on Sunday morning for food and general merriment. The cost of brunch covers your food, coffee/tea, and juice as well!
If you would like to stay at The Ace, you can also use the code BUFFYPROM for 15% off of rooms on March 8, 9, and/or 10!

#PROMUPS In OTHER CITIES
Last year our Buffering Prom inspired meet-ups in several other cities across the world (!!), and IT RULED! If you are interested in having a gathering (big or small!!) to celebrate prom with us, you can let us know by using this form, and we will begin to list them on this page as they come through!
These are run by Buffering the Vampire Slayer listeners (aka "Scoobies"), hence the “unofficial” part. We have no governing rules and no authority over these groups, although we do encourage each one to strive to be the most awesome, inclusive, totally cool place on Earth and/or in other Hell Dimensions.
PS: If you post about your prom meetups anywhere, tag them with #promups so we can follow the conversation!
BUFFERING PROM FAQs
Hello! Many of you lovely lovelies have had some similar queries about prom, so here are the answers for you!
What time should I arrive?
Doors are at 7pm, and we will commence the MAIN EVENT at 8pm. So, for sure before there before 8, and if you want to get the full sampling of the music on the first playlist, you can come right at 7. The bar will be open at 7pm as well, and snacks will come out at 8pm!
Yes, snacks! We will have some assorted chips and nuts and things, and later in the evening some delicious cake! It will not a meal make, so you should plan on eating dinner before you arrive!
Will there be a coat check?
More information on this to come soon!
Will there be merchandise?
Oh hellmouth yes there will be! We will let you know closer to prom what items we will have for sale. We accept cash and charge! Woo!
I have more questions!
We will be doing our best to check our email right up until prom in case anything comes up, so shoot us an email at email@example.com and we will do our best to get back to you!
