Valentine's Ball 2 weekender - Frantic Flintstones thrilled thousands of psychobilly fans

It felt like prom night. Psychobilly and rockabilly fans from all over the nation showed up in full force, dressed to the nines, eager to socialize with others who had traveled to Pomona’s newly renovated Fox Theatre for this big event. The second annual Valentine’s Ball is just one of the famous “weekenders” organized by Rich of Black Cat Entertainment, the other being Labor Day weekend’s Hollywood Showdown now on its eleventh year. The Valentine’s Ball, which took place February 13th (conveniently on the Saturday of a three-day weekend in honor of President’s Day), is quickly becoming one of the nation’s hottest annual destinations.

This year’s event attracted an estimated 2,000 fans, filling the luxurious Fox Theatre with vibrant energy. The venue was perfect. There was a side room with a bar and comfortable places to sit when you needed a moment to relax, away from the noise of the main room. The spiraling staircase ushered patrons up to the prom-like photo booth and to another bar on the smoking patio. The plush lobby offered fans a chance to meet with band members at the merch tables. And, of course, there was the huge auditorium with room for the lively wrecking pit and great views for those even further back who didn’t want to risk breaking a heel or mussing up their well-done hairdo’s.
