Feeling Gloomy presents: Miss/Mister Gloomy
April 15 @ 11:00 pm - April 16 @ 4:00 am| $6
Four years ago this month, the Brothers Gloom brought Feeling Gloomy from the L.E.S. to Brooklyn, so for the occasion we want to celebrate what makes Feeling Gloomy great. So we’re going to have a pageant. Not a beauty pageant, but a pageant to find the gloomiest boy or girl out there and shower them with love, adulation, and gifts. And dancing. We’re skipping the swimsuit competition: we’ll be judging on who is the gloomiest.
SMILE LIKE YOU MEAN IT
How the hell is this going to work without turning a dance party into a lot of standing around? We have the solution! We’re going to be doing most of the hard work NOW here on the interwebz. We’ll use the Facebook to winnow down to a handful of finalists. Come to our FB group or the event page for this party and we’ll have all of the initial questions and information. We’ll keep a leaderboard and we’ll select a handful of finalists.
THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE
All of our finalists will get free entry. At the party, we will only ask each of them to do two things:
1) Show us a (very brief!) talent
2) Participate in a gloomy dance off
Our bar for talent is pretty low. It can totally just be lip-syncing a verse from a gloomy tune. We’ll work with the finalists to make sure everything is quick and fun. Costume is definitely a big part of the dance-off. There will be only one round and one song, so bring your A game.
THE GLITTERING PRIZES
The winner will get a Gloomy prize pack worth over $100, plus FREE ENTRY INTO FEELING GLOOMY NYC FOR LIFE. That’s right, if you win this pageant, you will never pay cover ever again, at any of our parties, and we’ll even give you a plus one anytime you want to come. Come every month, we dare you! As for the prize pack, we’ll be revealing its contents in good time.
I DON’T MIND IF YOU FORGET ME
Didn’t hear about the first round of the pageant until the party or didn’t manage to make it as finalist? We’ll have a consolation competition in which contestants will describe the worst day they’ve had in 2017. The one with the worst day wins, as judged by our partygoers.
DANCING WITH TEARS IN MY EYES
First and foremost this is a DANCE PARTY! It wouldn’t be Feeling Gloomy if we didn’t spend all night dancing with the contestants, the winners, the losers, and everyone else. Your affable hosts Gordon + Nathaniel Gloom will spend the night spinning gloomy post-punk, synthpop, indie rock, glam + britpop. If you don’t care about pageants you can come and dance and get a drink or some air during the brief moments where we are not playing music, they will be short and sweet.
