LA’s monthlyÂ Emo NiteÂ event returned home for the first LA event in 2017, back atÂ The EchoÂ andÂ EchoplexÂ last night, Tuesday February 7th. As always, there were a handful of special guests that DJ’d and performed live sets for fans, but most notable was the epic first performance in 11 years byÂ From First to Last, fronted by singerÂ Sonny Moore, also known as EDM artist Skrillex.
The band’s set list included the first live performance of newly released singleÂ “Make War”Â as well as huge hits like “Emily” andÂ “Note to Self.”Â Check out a video of the performance,.Â Additional guests includedÂ Machine Gun Kelly, Hawthorne Heights and Secondhand Serenade.

Additionally, the Emo Nite team creates themed events and truly transforms the environment they are in. They had aÂ country bandÂ take over and learn emo songs after taking part in a not-so-traditionalÂ western shoot out.

Founder Morgan Freed said he is “personally inspired by stuff we see everyday so we just apply that to Emo Nite”
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. From branded merchandise, to collaborations with large-scale clothing brands such as OBEY Clothing and working closely with local live shows, what used to be a monthly event expanded to something of a phenomenon.
Emo Nite recently celebrated their two-year anniversary with over 2,000 attendees and nearly 100,000 viewers around the world via IHEARTCOMIXX live stream event, ‘Streamo Nite.’ For a look into the last two years, check out. A monthly Emo Nite attendee shared, “This is the first time probably in my life that I have felt accepted genuinely for who I am and found people that helped me come into my own as a human being instead of doing this job or looking this way because it’s cool or not cool. It’s not something that I will ever forget….Emo Nite takes the saddest years of your life and makes it into the happiest night of your life.”
