the love hangover

The Love Hangover, an international music tradition for 20 years.

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

The Love Hangover, now in its twentieth year (and its ninth 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.

By the Numbers

67 shows

500+ performers

 

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.

 

History

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 became an international event with its first show in Toronto, Canada. Providence, RI became the seventh city to host a Love Hangover in 2017.  In 2019, The Love Hangover turns 20 and adds two new cities: Philadelphia and Detroit.

Benefit for Sounds of Savings

In 2019 many chapters of The Love Hangover shows will be benefits for Sounds of Saving, a nonprofit which seeks to use the connective and inspirational powers of music to alleviate depression, prevent suicide and reduce the stigma around these struggles.
