Emo Nite will be returning to Los Angeles on Tuesday, March 5th at the Echoplex. This nationwide popular event was “started by three friends (Babs Szabo, T.J. Petracca, and Morgan Freed) at a small dive bar.” The diverse lineup features musical talents, “Dead American, 8Graves, and Calmgrove” who will be performing upstairs in the two-story venue. Pianist, “Hunter Deblanc will be taking requests” and playing “covers between bands” as well. To achieve access to the event, one must be 21 and certain perks such as “skipping the line” will be offered to those who purchase “Earlyboy tickets” which will be “limited.” These special tickets will be sold on March 1st, at 11:00 AM pst and in order to successfully purchase these tickets, “a password will be required” and these interested customers must text “EARLYBOY to 55222” to receive the password.
Emo Nite has branched out to more than a single day event at world-renowned music festivals like “Life is Beautiful” and “Vans Warped Tour.” Aside from these music-focused events, the emo music celebration has had several collaborations with streetwear brands such as “OBEY, Urban Outfitters, (and) PLEASURES.” The punk rock traveling spectacle has had wild success as many guests superstars have made special appearances at these performances. “Artists from in and out of the scene including The Used, Good Charlotte, Andrew McMahon, Halsey, From First to Last with Sonny Moore, Demi Lovato, New Found Glory, Mark Hoppus, The All-American Rejects, Post Malone, All Time Low, Machine Gun Kelly and more have all attended, performed or guest DJ’d at Emo Nite LA events over the last five years.”
This event started by a few friends is known for selling out “within the first few hours of being announced” so keeping a keen eye out is strongly encouraged. The transformation from a local night out to an insanely huge celebration of eclectic rock and emo music from different decades has morphed into a must-go-to commemoration for punk lovers and rockers alike.
