Feeling Gloomy NYC’s 4th Birthday Party
Oct 19, 2013 @ 11:00 pm - Oct 20, 2013 @ 4:00 am| $6
Yes you have read correctly, Feeling Gloomy’s NYC iteration is about to turn 4 years old just as our British brothers and sisters turn 8. Four years ago the legendary forefathers of Feeling Gloomy, Cliff and Len, sailed over the Atlantic from London to colonize and claim this land in the name of Gloom.
Four years of your life have passed since we started this damn party, so how does that feel? Well we’re going to celebrate anyway. We’ll be starting the Halloween season a little early by getting in costume and we want you to dress up like your favorite glum musicians! We want to see some Robert Smiths with complete inability to apply makeup, some carefully coiffured Morrisseys, carefully be makeup’d Siouxsie Siouxes and some carefully bespectacled Jarvises (Jarvi?).
We will have:
Best Costume Awards
A birthday cake that wears black on the outside (because black is how it feels on the inside)
A pinata filled with, sad, sad candy
The Party That Brings a Tear To Your Eye
Sat 19th October 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!
