I was driving my car/ I crashed and broke my spine/ So yes, there are things worse in life than/ never being someones sweetie, sings Morrissey in his 2008 single Thats How People Grow Up. The British singer continues to deliver the same indulgent, lovelorn lyrics from his days with The Smiths in the early 80s. Hes been the love-sicks go-to salve during the past three decades. So its fitting that Dangerfun is throwing Hated for Loving: A Smiths/Morrissey Tribute at Churchills the day after Valentines.
Bands State Of, Club of Rome, Ordinary Boys (featuring members of Astari Nite, Rebel, Fuck Yeah!), and Girlfriend in a Coma (with members of Armada!, Low Visibility, and Ana De Lima) will cover Moz classics such as Heaven Knows Im Miserable Now and deep cuts like Youre the One for Me, Fatty as you tearfully recall the chubster that got away.
