Episode Summary

Kacey says that it's someone's birthday and the band says it's Nelson's. That's when Kacey realizes that she and Nelson share the same birthday. The band decides that they should throw a party together.

Kacey eventually gets so carried away, she takes over the party plans herself, since she wants to impress the Perfs that she and her friends can party. Then she nixes all of Nelson's ideas and guests like a magician and a guy who sticks his fingers in his nose all the time. 

Nelson starts to get fed-up and Stevie also notices that. And Stevie helps Kacey realize that she has gone too far. Kacey soon realizes it and decides to throw Nelson a surprise party in the band room, with the magician and the nose picker. Molly hears that Kacey will have a party, then she acts nice to Kacey and her band all the time so that she could diss Kacey and not show up. However, it is revealed that her real plan was to come to the party and embarrass her and sabotage the whole party. Kacey then tells Grace where the real party is, and tricks Molly by saying that the venue was at a club. However, when Molly goes to the club, it turns out that she's the only one outside and that the club was closed. She calls Grace and finds out that she is at Nelson's party.

Then Gravity 5 plays at the party, and Zander performs his first duet with Kacey.
