Prom night brings together a diverse mix of music

Saturday’s show at the Midland was an ersatz adult prom that convened four disparate bands — Now Now Sleepyhead, A Silent Film, Dead Sara and the Smithereens — to provide the evening’s soundtrack. Admission was free, and patrons were encouraged to dress in formal attire. It made for a festive evening, despite the colliding styles of music.
