Feeling Gloomy

HERE COMES YOUR GLOOMY (Feeling Gloomy pays homage to the Pixies)

Want to feel old? Pixies’ Doolittle came out 25 years ago. Holy crap. If ever there was a band that helped us get through high school, being weird, putting up with Tyler Durden being a dick, and comprehending why bands ever reunite, it’s the Pixies. (Sorry, it’s hard sometimes to drop the “the.”) So for this month’s Feeling Gloomy we thought we’d pay tribute to one of the best pre-indie rock bands.

  •    + DJs Gordon and Nathaniel Gloom will play play armloads of songs by Frank Black, Kim Deal, Joey and David, both together and apart. Plus we’ll delve into our late 80s / early 90s college rock collections and play some of the gloomiest songs from their contemporaries like the Cure, R.E.M., Love and Rockets, the La’s, etc.
  •    + Got a Death to the Pixies T-shirt (or the like)? Wear it and we’ll let you in for $4
  •    + A Pixies-themed cake!

Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog Sing-Along

Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog SING-ALONG and Joss Whedon-Themed Party

This show is so popular we already sold out! But don’t fear, we added a 2nd show at midnight:

Your application to the Evil League of Evil has been received and you (and your henchpeople) are invited to Union Hall for our Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog Sing-Along and Whedonverse Party to sing along to the musical based on our newest member, Dr. Horrible! We’ll be showing Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog in its entirety with all the lyrics on screen so everyone can sing along together to their favorite songs. Come in costume as your super villain (or hero) alter ego or as your favorite character from the Whedonverse! Throughout the event we’ll have contests, prizes and surprises to make the night even more horrible…we mean, memorable.


  • Dr. Horrible and Whedon-themed contests and trivia with cool (and evil) prizes like memorabilia from across the Whedonverse, Evil League of Evil membership cards, free drinks and gift cards for frozen yogurt!
  • Drinking games paired with the movie so you can sing-along AND drink-along!
  • Audition for the Evil League of Evil! Impress Bad Horse with your original super villain costume!
  • Show your love of the Whedonverse and dress up as a character from one of his TV shows or movies like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Firefly, Angel, Dr. Horrible, Dollhouse, or The Avengers…if Whedon is in the credits it’s fair game!
  • Our bartender has a Ph.D. in Horribleness…and awesome cocktails! We’ve got themed drinks like the Wonderflonium, Moist’s Lemonade, the Freeze Ray, and more!
  • Soundtrack and jams provided by our Henchman Union-certified DJ, DJ BRIAN BLACKOUT!
