It’s time for another edition of the YDH2S newsletter, where we give you the scoop on a ton of dance parties that we put on ourselves or think you’ll want to hit up.
We’re going to be expanding this newsletter in the coming weeks, so expect more parties and probably more frequent newsletters too. As such there’s a ton going on in June so continue on for the parties.
(This newsletter will be published as a fancy email as well as on our Tumblr. The Tumblr will be updated as things progress, so it’s always the most current. You can subscribe to the newsletter, follow us on Twitter, and follow us on Tumblr or read this newsletter on Tumblr, eschewing the mere idea of subscriptions. Faugh!).

The Rebirth of HAPPY HOUSE
Four years ago, we created something pretty awesome in south Brooklyn. From The Bell House and Union Hall to Le Poisson Rouge and whatever gypsy bars would let us play music, we were fortunate enough to groove with so many of you. It’s almost been a year since we last played, but we’re anxious to dance with you again.
In short: come dressed to sweat and let your freak flag fly. We’ll make sure that no matter what you’re into, we’ll have something for that disco booty of yours. (Unless that “something” is dubstep. We digress.)

FEELING GLOOMY gets MORRISSEY FOMO
We all heard the news, Morrissey cancelled his whole dang tour. Of course he did. We had been planning on spending the evening reveling in the misery of missing the show, but now we can ALL do that, even those of us who had the cheddar to afford those ticket prices.
As such, if you can show the door person your Morrissey ticket, we’ll let you in for half off! Fate giveth, and fate taketh away…
AS YOU WERE:
Well, we’re doing a Feeling Gloomy the exact same night that Morrissey plays the Barclays Center. Some of us have seen him live, some haven’t, but none of us wanted to pay the mega-high cover charge to see him in the equivalent of a giant arena, so… we didn’t get tickets. And now we have FOMO.
WTF is FOMO you ask? For those not into internet abbreviating lingo it means Fear Of Missing Out. Like, we didn’t get tickets, but we’re also very concerned we’ve missed a life-changingly gloomy experience. So we have one course of action:
THROW A GIGANTIC MORRISSEY-THEMED DANCE PARTY!! (with)
- + a Morrissey Soul(less) Train (exactly what it sounds like)
- + a bad poetry contest & recital
- + Morrissey-themed baked goods
- + Morrissey/Smiths concert footage projected onto your writhing, dancing, oscillating wildly bodies
- + Your favorite depressed DJs Gordon and Nathaniel Gloom playing a lorry full of Morrissey & Smiths songs, plus all your favorite anglophilic, gloomy faves

HEAD ON: BOWIE vs PRINCE
Hey, who is your favorite androgynous, multi-decade, multi-genre, trailblazing, influential, possibly bisexual rock star/sex symbol? Well, we’re not really sure what you’ll say, but we feel very certain that it’s one or the other of this month’s themes: David Bowie, or the artist currently known (we think) as Prince. Between the two of them, they’ve collaborated with everyone from Kate Bush to Giorgio Moroder to Bing Crosby, tackled every genre we can think of except for polka and dubstep, and introduced more young minds to the idea of sex than you shake a stick at. BUT, which would make for a better dance party? We have no idea, but we’re going to have a blast finding out.
Head On is a monthly dance battle pitting two themes against one another. Resident DJs Brian Blackout, Spoolwork, and Lepaux will pit suffragettes against controversy, modern love against a love bizarre, Andy Warhol against Annie Christian, “Suffragette City” against “Erotic City,” and “Dance, Magic Dance” against “Batdance.” And you’ll pick the winner (by dancing).
