The 90s were a transitional period. We were coming down from our cocaine high in the 80s and settling into a new world that was relatively peaceful and prosperous. President Bill Clintons biggest problem was keeping his wandering eye for full-figured interns in check. The nations biggest crisis was that there werent enough AOL phone numbers for our 56k modem to call into. That and your mom wont stop accidentally picking up the phone, causing you to disconnect and hear the dreaded Goodbye!
Compared to the post-9/11 world we live in, the 90s were awesome. Helping you relive that great decade is Sweat Records and the Vagabond (30 NE 14th St., Miami), who have brought to you the annual 80s Prom around Thanksgiving. But this time around, its time to sport your favorite kinderwhore or Contempo Casuals attire, because the two indie forces are bringing you 90s Homecoming. There is no preparty matchup between football rivals, but there will be music provided by the citys purveyors of cool. Heres hoping the playlist ranges from grunge to bubblegum pop to ska revival. The party starts Sunday at 10 p.m. Tickets cost $10. Call 305-379-0508, or visit thevagabondmiami.com.
