The Unhappy Hour

Imagine the New American Standards…heart breaking melodies sung with piano, whilst wearing a black suit…… but the humor is even blacker familiar songs done in unfamiliar ways, heralding the end of days occupied by moody monologs the end is always a new beginning….

Is it this city? or is it just me? They say Seattle can bring you down. Is it the rain? the weather?

Well, weather or not, come spend time with THE UNHAPPY HOUR.
