Dry Your Moz Tears Tonight at The High Watt's Morrissey Pity Party

Posted By on Tue, Jan 29, 2013 at 3:27 PM

As you handsome devils and comatose girlfriends are likely well aware, tonight's Morrissey concert at the Ryman has been postponed because the Pope of Mope is straight-up bleeding internally. And while a makeup date has yet to be announced for the gig, The High Watt is offering up their space as a refuge for dismayed Smiths fans looking for something to do tonight that doesn't involve quietly sobbing in a corner. Or does. I don't know, what you do when you're out is none of my business.

The brainchild of occasional bigmouth and spurned Morrissey fan Brandon Jazz, "Pity Party" is a support group dedicated to Smiths fans who would otherwise be wandering the streets in a slump. The party features DJs playing '80s sad-bastard music and some almost assuredly drunken Moz/Smiths karaoke. Hark, a Facebook event page:

Morrissey got you feeling morose? Are you heartbroken that tomorrow's concert at the Ryman is being rescheduled? Heaven knows we're all miserable now, but don't panic! The High Watt is opening its doors to all you disappointed Smiths/Morrissey fans tomorrow night for an informal get-together of the morbidly-minded!

There's no cover and all of you misfits aged 21 and over are welcome to join us. There will be 80's music courtesy of Mindub, BOOK CLUB & McCordinator, and maybe even some Sad Karaoke late night. Swing by The High Watt at 8pm and throw yourself a pity party! It's what Morrissey would have wanted.

The free party starts at 8 p.m. and goes until question marks (just kidding, y'all have to go home at 3 a.m.). Try not to butcher “This Charming Man” too badly. And if you bought roses to throw onstage tonight, I'm sure Brandon Jazz wouldn't mind too much if you chucked them at the bar.
