When: Fri., May 22, 10 p.m. 2015
It seems strange to celebrate a happy birthday for a man who wrote the ballad “Unhappy Birthday,” but isn’t that the whole point of Morrissey aka “the Pope of Mope?” As the frontman of legendary Brit-pop-rock group the Smiths and a solo artist, Moz’s legacy as a musician/outspoken animal rights activist/cult icon is legendary. Even though Morrissey is 55 going on 56, his razor-sharp wit and knack for clever lyrics are ageless. In the words of the quote king himself, “You’re either marvelous or you’re boring, regardless of your age.” Unhappy birthday, Morrissey! With DJ Dc and Marky Mark.
