Tonight at the Black Rabbit in Greenpoint, Dave Hill hosts “Heaven Knows I’m Miserable Now”– a night of speed-dating to the soundtrack of The Smiths/Morrissey. Don’t stop me if you think you’ve heard this one before, as this is a returning event. Perhaps your love life is going nowhere fast and you sit around thinking, “How could anybody possibly know how I feel?” Well, why don’t you find out for yourself? Bring your dial-a-cliche and proclaim to the ladies/gents, “All you need is me!”
