Feeling Gloomy presents Cheer Up, Bowie
Jan 18, 2014 @ 11:00 pm - Jan 19, 2014 @ 4:00 am| $6
Lately, David Bowie just hasn’t seemed like that same old Bowie. On his new record, he felt so lonely he could die, he lost love, he talks a lot about Berlin (Germany! Depressing!) and thinks a lot about doing stuff like setting the world on fire, or how he’d rather be high. Jesus, Bowie, you’re bringing us all down. We think we should celebrate his birthday and try to make him feel better.
Imagine, Bowie hurries over to Feeling Gloomy, a little later than his usual impeccable timing, cracks open the door to the Grand Victory, pays his $6 cover charge and hustles over to buy a Narragansett from Sean. He begins to suspect something when he notices everyone has had their faces painted like Ziggy Stardust at our Bowie face painting station (to station). Then he realizes that everyone over by the DJ booth is whirling around to all of their favorite songs of his. Hardly anyone ever plays “The Secret Life of Arabia” at dance parties, thinks Bowie! Imagine the look on Bowie’s face! His heart would swell three sizes, and clearly he’d run out on the dancefloor to find his mates and give them a big hug.
So that’s exactly how the night is going to play out. We’re pretty sure. In any event it’ll be a lot of good fun.
