Valentine’s Day is nice … if buying expensive roses and eating a quiet meal with your special someone. But when you consider the unbelievable odds of a relationship making it these days, well, why bother, right?
Well, maybe that came off as harsh or anti-love, but I’m just over a lifetime of hype about this day that gets more and more commercialized with each passing year.
Lucky for singles and all others who often feel left out on February 14, a newish trend of anti-Valentine’s events are popping up all over the city. But none is going to be more interesting than Emo Night's second installment of Get Sad Volume Two.
Organizers promise the tunes will be louder than version one and will be once again celebrating the greatness of the break-up song with a night devoted to this music composition style.
And while I realize that this review will in no way diminish your young love’s dream of what makes a romantic night out on Feb. 14, should you find yourself feeling sorry for yourself or just looking to mingle with other singles who like to have alternative fun, then Get Sad is just the ticket for you.
After all, Bernie Taupin and Elton John said it best: “Sad songs say so much.” And judging by playlist available, this is going to be one really amazing night of sad songs.
