A Very Gloomy Christmas
Dec 21, 2013 @ 11:00 pm - Dec 22, 2013 @ 4:00 am| $6
So you may have seen it lurking on the store shelves, heard it piping from the tinny speakers of every business establishment in time, but all of creation seems set to remind us that, yes, it’s Christmas time. That time of year people run rampant over our city’s retail outlets and spend too much money on things their family members don’t want. Yes, we are dreading it too. So, let’s get together to celebrate how much Christmas can suck, while dancing to songs about wishing our lovers would please come home, being alone on Christmas Day, wishing that George Michael would give his heart to someone who wouldn’t give it away, and whether or not people even know it’s Christmas with all the folks who are suffering all around the planet.
Where were we? Ah:
– The first 10 people in the door will receive stockings full of coal
– We’ll dress like sad, sad seasonal icons, and we’ll give the best costume a prize
– We’ll indulge in some seasonal fruitcake
– We’ll dance to our favorite songs that are about being miserable at Christmas, or not about Christmas at all
The Party That Brings a Tear to Your Eye
Sat 21st December at Grand Victory
+ 3rd Saturdays every month
Feeling Gloomy, the world’s only dance party devoted to sad music, has returned to NYC. Having taken a short break due to previous promoter Gertrude Gloom leaving these shores to return to the Gloom mothership in London, Feeling Gloomy, NY’s premier British dance party, is back and moving to Brooklyn!
The night has been taken on by brothers grim Gordon and Nathaniel Gloom who promise you more downbeat BPMs than you can handle. They will be joined by DJ Grim Reaper who really does look like death (sorry!)
Smuggled over from the Gloomy old UK (where its now 7 years old) it has thrived in the land of the free, bringing great, gloomy, British tunes to the good ole US of A for over three years now!
The boys will be rifling through their record collections to select anything from The Cure to Dolly Parton. As long as the lyrics are gloomy and you can dance to it, it may well be thrown down. Don’t forget if it’s your birthday you will get the chance to come up and blow out the candles on the cake as the crowd sing ‘Unhappy birthday’ and commiserate with you for being another year nearer the grave!
So come on New York. Join Feeling Gloomy in its new home and put on your red shoes to dance those blues!
