A soundtrack of melancholy pop and bedroom anthems where misanthropes gather to cut loose and have fun.

Eternal pessimists – and proud of it – the Feeling Gloomy crew spin a regular soundtrack of gloom-tinted (but still hugely enjoyable) pop. Think Blondie to Bowie, Abba to The Clash, The Smiths to the Scissor Sisters, Bonnie Tyler to Joy Division. Get ready to do some whistful sighing and then jump on the dancefloor when you realise no-one's watching you anyway.

Such is the popularity of this brilliant night that it's even hopped across the pond to New York. Oh, and attracted a ton of alt royalty celebs over the years - Jarvis Cocker, Michael Fassbender, Adam Buxton, Olivia Coleman, Daniel Kitson... There are many, which should go some way to demonstrating how much fun you'll have here.

Someone must say that they don't 'play' music - they just turn it on( Thought it was a live performance, but it's kind of a school discoteque.
