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.
