Hey, there are still more details!  This of from show organizer, Veronica:

The Punk Rock Sock Hop is a vintage dance party/punk show with live music and a dj playing 50’s & 60’s Rock. It started in State College July 8th & I’ve decided to have them seasonally, once in the spring / summer / fall. I have every intention of doing it in Pittsburgh seasonally and the November hop is the first one =) There is a 50’s costume contest so 50’s dress is encouraged — I can’t say it’s an authentic sock hop b/c we won’t be in a gym and we are going to keep our shoes on and the music is a little harder but the concept is there. The sock hop has some extra motives — aside from trying to show everyone a good time — I started the hop to try to raise funds for local non profits — I’m giving each band one share of the cover charge and one share to free ride pittsburgh:
