In lieu of the various capstone events that high schoolers will miss out on this year, Mr. Carmack will be throwing a virtual prom to offer a spin-off alternative for students. The new announcement follows the wave of creative live streaming adaptations that have exploded since the beginning of the COVID-19 crisis.
Teaming up with NOODLES for the prom 2020 event, the Los Angeles-based beatmaker and his co-host will take to NOODLES’s Twitch channel for a 3-hour extravaganza of music, dresses, and suits. Mr. Carmack and NOODLES both shared the Verdy-designed flyer on Instagram and encouraged attendees to dress up in prom gear for the one-of-a-kind night—with the latter mentioning that they would be crafting corsages and boutonnières leading up to the event.
“I chose this date because it’s my high school’s real prom date! Shout out James Logan High School + SOTA High School in SF,” wrote NOODLES in her Instagram post.
The “one virtual night only” prom takes place Saturday, May 16 from 6-9pm PST on NOODLES’s Twitch Channel here.
