TPOBPAH, Sad13, Sports, & Half Waif played Indie Pop Prom 5 at Brooklyn Bazaar (pics)

On Saturday night (2/25) Brooklyn Bazaar hosted the fifth annual Indie Pop Prom. Aside from serving as show curator Maria Sherman’s birthday party, this year’s edition of Prom was a benefit, with proceedings going to The Pink Fund, an organization that provides financial assistance to breast cancer patients. This year was also the first that Prom expanded to two nights, one in NYC, and the other the previous night at The Church in Philadelphia. Like in previous years, many people took advantage of the occasion to dress up and pose with a date in the photo booth, and there were plenty of balloons around.

Headliners The Pains of Being Pure at Heart also played the first Indie Pop Prom at 285 Kent. This time they brought Jessica Weiss of Fear of Men to sing and play keyboards with them. Along with Sad13 (aka Speedy Ortiz singer Sadie Dupuis) and Sports (who also played Indie Pop Prom 3), they played both the Philly and Brooklyn shows. In Brooklyn, Half Waif delivered a great solo set, despite saying she was sick. (She also had an EP, form/a, come out on Friday.) T-Rextasy played as well. Check out pictures from the whole night in the gallery above.

The Philly show had TPOBPAH, Sad13 and Sports joined by Mercury Girls (who played Brooklyn with No Joy on Saturday) and Swanning.
