The Love Hangover turns (bitter)sweet 16 and goes international

Find a sympathetic soul during this evening of duets about love.

The Love Hangover, now in its sixteenth year (and its sixth city and second country), is an annual event held on February 15th. On this day-after evening, the world-weary and the true believers alike huddle in pairs, playing songs to heal broken hearts and break whole ones.

Local luminaries of the music scene come two by two and each duo performs love songs to hold forth on love in all of its many guises: the joy, the pain, the humor, the frustration, the ecstasy, the agony, the list goes on and on, just like love.

The Concept

The Love Hangover is an annual multi-city, multi-artist musical event that explores romantic love in all its many guises. Held each year on February 15th, this post-Valentine's showcase features a line-up of duets singing songs of the lovelorn, love sworn and love torn.


The Love Hangover was first staged in Raleigh, NC in 2000, and in 2005 expanded to New York City. In 2008, the showcase moved west to include Kansas City, MO. Ann Arbor, MI followed in 2009, and 2010 marked The Love Hangover's debut in Chicago, IL. In 2015 The Love Hangover becomes an international event with its first show in Toronto, Canada


Past performers include members of Guided by Voices, The Magnetic Fields, Whiskeytown, Clem Snide, 11th Dream Day, Cat Power, Freakwater, Poi Dog Pondering, Mascott, Megafaun, Portastatic, The dBs, The Blue Man Group-Chicago, The Connells, Michael Cerveris, KaiserCartel, Cobra Verde, Dish, The Winter Drinks and Shark Quest, as well as solo performers Tift Merritt, Caitlin Cary, Doug Gillard, Tracy Bonham, Anders Parker, Teddy Thompson, Jolie Holland, Rick Moody, Thad Cockrell, Chip Robinson and Garrison Starr.
