Event Details

Join us for the return of MELANCHOLY HOUR: happy hour for the rest of us, an evening of pensive prose and plaintive music on SUNDAY, JUNE 27th from 7-8PM — the hour you realize tomorrow is Monday and the weekend has fled and existential despair creeps in and the sunlight is all slanted.

Pensive readers have selected 10-15 minutes of prose based on the theme of ISOLATION — whatever that felt like (or continues to feel like) for them in particular. Readers will be underscored live by musicians Nigel Newton (vibes) and Neil Coburn (guitar) and their impeccably moody despair.

Featured Readers:

Jonathan Norton

Brittany Griffiths

Clate Bowen

Joanna Lugo

No need to applaud or mingle or small-talk or even smile — come listen, think, enjoy a drink, and contemplate being alone, together.

Curated by Nigel Newton and Janielle Kastner, both of whom found they were not quite ready for brunch.
