Emo Nite Brings The Party To Orlando

Emo Nite LA: if you know, you know. If you have no idea what those words mean, allow me to explain. Three friends in Los Angeles created an iconic event in a small dive bar that has become a full-blown phenomenon among those in the alternative scene. Emo Nite is, at its core, a DJ event where pop punk / emo music is blasted through the speakers while fans dance on the floor and even the stage itself. Emo Nite has become an all-inclusive night where fans of Fall Out Boy, Panic! at the Disco, My Chemical Romance, and more, can gather and share their love for the music they grew up listening to. You might even hear that song that changed your life. You know — we all have that one song.
I recently was able to attend an Emo Nite event in Orlando, Florida at The Social on June 20th. Thankfully for those of us who do not live in or near LA, Emo Nite has its own tour with many stops and dates! Even though it wasn’t like a traditional concert, it was no less exciting to see everyone bond over the music, screaming the lyrics at the top of their lungs, and reveling in the nostalgia.
Music always has a way of bringing people together, and Emo Nite was no exception — check out the tour dates down below and make plans to bust out those old band shirts and go heavy on the eyeliner. After all, when else can you have a massive sing along to those songs that hit home when you were in high school?
