Fans of the pre-grunge Seattle indie band Young Fresh Fellows will rejoice tonight alongside the junior-society set at the annual Young Fellows black-tie ball, which is themed “Dance of Time” and sponsored by Donna Karan. The highbrow-yet-beautiful steering committee includes author Lesley M.M. Blume, Lydia Fenet and Sara Gilbane Sullivan, along with a benefit committee boasting designer darling Wes Gordon, Matthew Mellon and Nicole Hanley Mellon, Lulu Frost designer Lisa Salzer, Cator Sparks and Georgina Bayard Schaeffer. The dolled-up girls and kitted-out chaps will peruse the fancy art and slug back a lot of cocktails. You can find them later with their bow ties askew and Donna Karan gowns disheveled, after hours at The Boom Boom Room.

The Frick Collection, 1 East 70th Street, (212) 547-0706, 8:30pm-12am, Tickets start at $325 for under 39-ers.
