Feeling Gloomy presents the Rebound Ball
We fast approach the time of the year when greeting card companies like to reminds us we should all be in committed relationships that involve spending lots of money on each other. Here at Feeling Gloomy, we're not that interested in happiness, glee, that sort of stuff. So we'd like to offer up an alternative to Valentine's. The Saturday following V-Day, we shall throw


(pause for dramatic effect)
THE REBOUND BALL.

Feeling Gloomy is always a dance party that focuses on the maudlin, and in rejoicing in sadness. This month we're going to pay special attention to all those songs about heartache, breaking up, unrequited love, and all the emotions that get swept under the rug by this stupid holiday. This is a party for the lonely, for the dumped (or, we suppose, for the dumper, that's tough too we're told). We'll be creating anti-Valentine's hearts that you can wear (and make yourself) to show off how sad, heartbroken, or clever you are (hopefully all three).

We're also going to hold a bad poetry competition. Anyone can enter by posting bad poetry on our Facebook wall, and we'll choose three finalists who get free passes to Feeling Gloomy. The finalists must recite their godawful poetry on stage and the winner of those, the Superbowl of Awful Poetry, will win a Pathetic Prize Pack curated by FGNYC. So.



Feeling Gloomy NYC presents...
CHEER UP, BOWIE!

+ Make and wear anti-Valentine's hearts to show people your *real* feelings
+ Make passes at other people wearing anti-Valentine's hearts
+ Enter and judge our Superbowl of Awful Poetry contest

All that AND DJs Gordon and Nathaniel Gloom spinning songs of love, songs of loss, songs about having your heart busted into a million pieces and then wanting to dance about it + all your other gloomy, anglophilic faves
