Hey Champ score a gig at a high profile gay prom

Posted by

Hey ChampThe awkward moments and mindless jubilation that is a high school prom aren’t usually sountracked by a decent band. Luckily the previously discriminated-against gay teens in Mississippi will have the music of Hey Champ to reinforce the good memories and hopefully overshadow the bad. The Chicago-based band will play the Second Chance prom in Tupelo, MS this Saturday night, put on by the Mississippi’s Safe Schools Coalition. Event sponsors include the most bizarre combination of entities: Lance Bass, Green Day, chef Cat Cora, and the American Humanist Association. Yeah, who was your prom sponsored by? Hey Champ will be playing tunes from their forthcoming debut album (Star, due in July). If you aren’t in high school or can’t afford a tux rental, you can preview and download the tunes “Neverest” and “Cold Dust Girl” below. It’s super synth pop boy deligthfulness.
