    Can someone tell me why these artists all know how to DJ? Because I produce electronic music, am quite popular and have no idea how to use CDJ's or been on the decks, and as a result have a hard time getting booked. Is it vital for musicians to DJ?

    Emo night DJ = picking what Fall Out Boy song plays. I don't believe turntables are really involved.

    Yeah, that's what it looked like from Mark Hoppus' performance. No beatmatching or anything really. Phew, I was worried haha

    I thought that this sounded really cool but then I saw what the DJ plays. It's just old emo songs mashed up with top 40 garbage.

    Yeah lol that's kind of their thing. It's honestly a fun time when you actually experience it.

    Luna Shadows is fucking awesome. Cool to see her on the lineup

    They came to Toronto and got booed off the stage because they remixed and added EDM beats to every pop-punk song. They eventually started to playing the songs on their own after backhandedly calling us "purists." Probably won't bother next time they're in town.

    Ugh. Of course you'd only want to hear songs the way you remember them at a nostalgia event. Friggin' grandpa.

    All serious though, that doesn't really sound fun.

    Impressive collection of big names they've got to show up regardless of what they do on the night
  14. SkyGrowsBigger


    haha yeah call me old fashioned. Those songs have a lot of meaning for people so I can understand why they wouldn't want to hear them butchered by mixing them over top techno beats with a guy sounding off a bullhorn every 2 minutes.
  15. Michael Buffone


    That just sounds...awful. So what exactly is the point of this event, because from what I'm hearing this really doesn't sound like fun. Maybe I'm missing something?

    fuck this concept, basically portrays "emo" music as nothing more than guilty pleasure nostalgia

    i'm sure they're fun and i'd have a blast i'm sure it just gives a really bad taste in my mouth, especially because none of this music is actually emo

    It's what most people consider to be emo the definition of the word/genre has obviously shifted from sunny day real Estate to my chemical romance

    I'm sure if you ask nicely they'll play an American Football or Joan of Arc song for you!

    I get that it leaves you a little frustrated that it's being treated as a novelty act, but considering it's a rare instance to actually get a venue playing a lot music from the scene, and celebrating it, it may be the only way for a lot of people to have a night like that. I'm sure we all wish our music tastes were less niche and we had the luxury of hearing it in public more often, but alas, this has to suffice for most.

    i know a lot of the people here are people who listened to taking back sunday and brand new and new found glory in high school and haven't listened in like 5-10 years and are going because it "brings you back to high school". that bothers me when that's the main intention of things like this, heh.

    beautiful and chequered, the end

    the mere fact that the slogan for this event seems to be "SAD AS FUCK" kills me. Can't stand when being "sad" is used as a marketing tool.

    I've been to a couple of Emo Night Brooklyn shows (different than Emo Nite) and they play the regular songs. Maybe you'll like that better? They tour now too.

    Man there's so many popping up it's hard to keep track. Emo Night Brooklyn sounds pretty similar to what they do here in Toronto (it's called Homesick and they do it at Sneaky Dee's every week). They don't tour as much though.

    For anyone in New York, Tom Mullen (guy behind the Washed Up Emo Podcast and apparently hosts a monthly Emo Night in the city as well. Sounds like he also dips into the more pop-punk side of things but expect to hear a lot of authentic emo as well (Promise Ring, Sunny Day Real Estate, Mineral, Texas is the Reason, etc.).

    Curious to hear what it's like if anyone's been
