Happening Saturday: '90s Prom, Res-Erection, and more

-Windup High's '90s Prom: The incessant '90s nostalgia that has everyone repeating questionable fashion choices is starting to wear on us, but this isn't your average '90s party. This the chance to redo your prom experience: to go back and pick a better date, to wear something less tacky, to not get pregnant. You could even be crowned prom king or queen. Saturday, April 4 9 p.m., The Windup Space, 12 W. North Ave., (410) 244-8855, thewindupspace.com, $5. (Al Shipley)

-Res-Erection: When we happened into the House of Sweetbottom Burlesque at The Windup Space on an otherwise-quiet Sunday night a couple weeks ago, we were reminded just how funky, and fresh, Baltimore's burlesque scene can be--even if many of the performers, including the fabulous Dangrrr Doll, came from out of town. But tonight's Twisted Knickers show is sure to blow away anything else in the burlesque world, at least if, like us, you were raised in a fanatically religious family. Res-Erection, coming (ahem) on the eve of Easter, is a brilliant concept and the old-time tent revival is the perfect format for mixing the hot and the holy. After all, nothing gets the blood a-bangin' like blasphemy. If you want to get in the mood for mixing sex and salvation, check out Harry Crews' great novel "The Gospel Singer." 8 p.m. Yellow Sign Theatre, 1726 N. Charles St., (410) 727-8815, $10-$25.
