Feeling Gloomy: Stuff New Year NYEP 2005
The night that says it's OK to walk around a club looking glum and to cry in the toilets, which tends to liberate people from the 'pressure' to have a good time and so they do, while dancing to torch songs, melancholy melodies, bedroom anthems and rockin' sad songs! This has taken off in the latter part of 2005 and to say thank you to all their fans, in true FG style, hosts Cliff and Len are laying on tea and 'Nice' biccies at midnight. It may be NY and all but don't forget to 'dress to depress' and get set for a spot of teen angst poetry too. Guests trying to dampen things will be the world's only indie air guitar band, The Miserabilist live plus DJ Grim Reaper.
