The Smiths and Morrissey Convention

Yesterday fans of the Smiths and Morrissey united at the Avalon in Hollywood to celebrate all things Moz. Plenty of pompadours and horn-rimmed glasses filled the venue as people danced their hearts out to songs from the Smiths and Morrissey for most of the evening. Two cover bands, Maladjusted and These Charming Men also played an assortment of songs that drove the diehard fans nuts by faithfully covering such rarely played songs like “Tony The Pony,” “Pretty Girls Make Graves,” and “Work Is A Four-Letter Word.” A game of Name That Morrissey/Smiths Tune provided some comic relief as the fans struggled to identify snippets of such songs as “Sunny,” “Lucky Lisp,” and “Shakespeare’s Sister” in a quest to win tickets to Morrissey’s upcoming show on 5/22 in San Diego on his birthday. Check out the harsh truth of the camera eye above.

    Great shots of the oh so many cholo babes in attendance. Moz needs to find a label A$AP, because we’re going on a year now since he revealed his latest was finished and just needed someone to put it out.

  2. Los Angeles <3 Moz

  3. Did they have a hot dog eating contest too? They should have had a hot dog eating contest.

  4. А вот в Рашке тоже любят Моррисси.

  5. ha…i remember hearing about this years ago…forgot about the cult get-togethers. i bet they could get Joyce to show up for $100 and hotel fare.

  6. that one cover band singer really needs to just lose the pompadour…it…underlines more your differences than makes you look similar:( sorry. and THAT is being a friend! haha

  7. Do I see Joseph Gordon Levitt or Zooey Deschanel there anywhere? No, I do not.
