Event Details

Emo Night is back for round four. We missed all of your over the extensive Christmas break, but we’ve got several new tricks and new friends up our sleeves. We heard you all had fun at our last band night so we are starting 2017 off with another Emo Night band night. This time we are bringing indie-punks (but they are really a Joyce Manor cover band) Young Hands and punk rock outfit Crossfire Collision along to deliver that 50/50 formula that worked so well last time. They shall be playing 50% original material and 50% classic emo covers. We have also managed to convince the intrepid Omar Morto to return to the decks and to deliver something that is a bit out of his usual comfort zone.

Cover fee: R50. Please bring cash.

Venue: Mercury Live

Doors open at 8:00pm

For our long-time patrons, you know what to expect, but to newcomers to this night of nostalgia here is what you can expect:

New friends
Old friends
That phase you tried really hard to shake but just couldn’t
The writing of sins, not tragedies
Chemical romances
Blinking 182 times
People adding up to 41
Talented men that may or may not be called Billy
Your mom calling you a Satanist while you dress yourself head-to-toe in back
All your non-emo friends think you are weird
Black eyeliner and vision-obscuring fringes
Brand new DJs
Not falling out with your friends
Things going down
The piercing of your emo veil
Last resort beers
More black clothing than a funeral for a friend
A day that isn’t really green
Modern takes on baseball
A severe lack of American Football
Pirates of the Caribbean references as we try to bring you the horizon
Good girls called Charlotte
Good girls all the bad guys want
Rock shows
Songs about Adam
A night to remember
A lot of panicking at the disco
A lack of world eating by Jimmy
Confessions on the dashboard
Pop punk covers
