Emo Nite LA took the world by storm – being everything us emo kids (and the emo kids at heart) needed to relive all of our favorite throwback and present-day emo tracks! Emo Nite began in a dive bar in Echo Park and has become so popular that Emo Nite has successfully been touring to popular cities to ensure that everyone get’s a taste!
Brought to life by three friends (Babs Szabo, T.J. Petracca and Morgan Freed), Emo Nite brings together people from all walks of life who share a love for emo rock music from the 90s to today. Beyond an epic DJ setlist, various artists, and musicians who have been inspired by or just really enjoy emo music have made appearances at these events which have expanded beyond Los Angeles to regularly include cities such as New York City, San Francisco, San Diego, Atlanta, Philadelphia, Louisville, Phoenix, Dallas, Baltimore, Minneapolis, Kansas, Las Vegas, Seattle, Orlando and Portland.
Today, Emo Nite is so much more than just an event in a dive bar. With tour dates all across America, a weekly podcast, a clothing line featured in Urban Outfitters and hilariously creative intro videos to Emo Nite, the founders work tirelessly to bring together those from all sorts of diverse backgrounds, where fans, musicians, and various celebrities can all scream their lungs out (to try and get to you? Yellowcard, anyone?) to their fave emo tracks. Appearances have been made by none other than Demi Lovato, Halsey, Machine Gun Kelly, Post Malone, Tyler Posey, Cole Sprouse and tons of notable pop punk/emo musicians. Even artists who have made their name in different genres (Demi, MGK, Post Malone) cannot resist coming together to rock out to and enjoy the emo music scene.
So, what better way to celebrate the third year anniversary of the #STAYSAD movement? Emo Nite will be holding an Emo Nite Day festival, happening on December 3rd in Los Angeles at the Shrine Expo Hall. Tickets are ON SALE NOW happening at http://emoniteday.com/
You might be wondering, what is Emo Nite Day? It is the END (get it?) all be all to everything fans love and enjoy about Emo Nite. There will be live performances, DJ sets throughout multiple stages, carnival games, food trucks and art installments. Emo Nite has teamed up with Goldenvoice to bring one EPIC festival to the fans. You don’t want to miss out on this special event! Earlyboy bundle tickets have already sold out, so don’t sleep on General Admission and regret this epic one-day-only event.
The line-up will be announced soon…but who are you hoping to see? A surprise My Chemical Romance reunion (hey, we can dream), Ryan Key? Dashboard Confessional? The EMO KINGS themselves in Fall Out Boy? Hawthrone Heights? The possibilities are endless.
