Melancholy Hour

Event Details

Mel·an·chol·y: a feeling of pensive sadness, typically with no obvious cause.

Join us for MELANCHOLY HOUR: happy hour for the rest of us, an evening of pensive prose and plaintive music. Hosted by The Wild Detectives on SUNDAY, JULY 29th from 7-8PM — the hour you realize Monday is coming and the weekend has fled and that existential despair creeps in.

Pensive readers have selected 10-15 minutes of prose that makes them feel melancholy, which they’ll read aloud, tragically underscored by musicians Nigel Newton (vibes) and Neil Coburn (guitar) at their most dismal and bleak.

The Grim Readers:
Priscilla Rice
Travis Wiley McGuire
Kelsey Grace Capps
Ruben Carrazana

No need to applaud or mingle or small-talk or even smile — come listen, think, chase your own tears with discounted drinks, and contemplate our melancholia alone-together.

Curated by Nigel Newton and Janielle Kastner, while staring out windows at the rain.
