The content, cheerful people have had their hour. Now is the time for the ruminators racked with ennui to step forward and, well, be inward and sad together. Join The Wild Detectives for Melancholy Hour. Billed as "happy hour for the rest of us," Melancholy Hour will set live readings of melancholy prose to the intentionally dismal musical stylings of Nigel Newton and Neil Coburn. And to really set the tone, drinks will be discounted, making substance-based coping the perfect way to wet your melancholic whistle.
