Feeling Gloomy’s (We’re-Not-Going-)Back-to-School-Dance

Sep 28, 2013 @ 11:00 pm - Sep 29, 2013 @ 4:00 am

| $6

A wise man once said

“Belligerent ghouls run Manchester schools
Spineless swines, cemented minds
Sir leads the troops jealous of youth
Same old suit since 1962
He does the military two-step down the nape of my neck
I wanna go home I don’t want to stay
Give up life As a bad mistake”

So school is back in session, and Manhattan and Brooklyn alike are awash in undergrads. We’re not sure if we should celebrate not having to go back to class or lament our lost youth, although… then again though nobody did the military two-step down the napes of our necks, it sucked pretty badly to begin with. So, the Brothers Gloom will be rifling through our collections of anthems of youth and education for just the right songs for a not-going-back-to-school dance (ok we’ll still allow you in if you’re a student, we suppose). We’ll get your fists pumping and hips shaking as we banish the bullies and jocks from our minds.

– Gordon & Nathaniel Gloom

Feeling Gloomy
The Party That Brings a Tear To Your Eye
Sat 28th September 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!
