Emo Nite LA Announces Two-Year Anniversary Event Line Up11:15 PM
LA's monthly Emo Nite event has announce the line-up for their massive upcoming two-year anniversary celebration taking place on Dec. 6 at The Echo/Echoplex in Los Angeles exclusively with AltPress.com, here.
The surprises don't end with the line-up announce, so fans have to be ready for anything.
"Everyone who comes to Emo Nite knows that they will see some unexpected things at the 2-year. We always have something weird up our sleeves," founder Babs Szabo said.
Captain Cuts member Ryan McMahon, a long time supporter of Emo Nite, said "TJ, Morgan, and Babs singlehandedly revived an entire generation of real boys and girls who grew up listening to pop-punk and emo music. We are trying our best to give back to the genre that inspired us to be all-killer and absolutely zero filler. We leave everything out there - as a result, this beautiful night in Echo Park might be slowly killing us. But if this is what it feels like in love & death, we welcome it with open arms."
IHEARTCOMIX founder Franki Chan said, "We are fucking pumped to be a part of EMO NITE's 2 year celebration and to bring this crazy event to the whole world via Party Stream. No party or group of people have blown me away more over the past few years than this crew, so damn right are we gonna put together an exciting program in honor of this anniversary! You're gonna be able to experience EMO NITE in a way you've never been able to before."
Founder TJ Petracca said, "It's honestly pretty surreal. This whole thing has gotten way bigger than we ever imagined or intended it to get. I'm so honored and happy to be celebrating two years of this party. We have made some amazing new friends, got to travel and see a ton of new cities, and meet our idols/heroes. Stepping back and looking at it from afar... I truly can't believe it."The year has gone by fast and been very busy for the founders.
Each month, different notable musicians from the scene have either DJ'd or performed at the event - previous artists have been: Chris Carraba of Dashboard Confessional, Mark Hoppus of Blink-182, Jack Barakat and Alex Gaskarth of All Time Low, Good Charlotte, Mikey Way of My Chemical Romance, We Are The In Crowd, Sugarcult, Set Your Goals, FIDLAR, Chris Conley of Saves the Day, The Used, The Movielife, The Spill Canvas, Seahaven, Have Mercy, Jason Butler of letlive., State Champs, Bryce Avery of The Rocket Summer, Anthony Raneri of Bayside, The Wonder Years, Craig Owens of Chiodos, Jesse Mack Johnson of Motion City Soundtrack, Buddy Nielsen of Senses Fail and more.
Additionally, the Emo Nite team creates themed events and truly transforms the environment they are in.
While the three founders of Emo Nite originally set out to simply create a small get together of like-minded music lovers, the event has formed into more than just an extremely energetic party - Emo Nite is a community.
What started as a nostalgic trip back to the era of myspace and skinny jeans soon became much more than that - it started a movement.
