Emo Night: Taking Back Saturday

By Emo Night South Africa
Sat, Sep 3. 6:30PM - 9:30PM
The Manila Bar, Cape Town

Saturdays have always been known as those nights where everyone goes out to get raucously inebriated while thudding bass beats propel them closer to permanently damaging their hearing. We fully endorse getting raucously, but responsibly, inebriated but with a slightly different soundtrack. One that drips with the nostalgia of high school and the tears associated with repressed angst. Thus, we present Taking Back Saturday – the much-requested second edition of Emo Night South Africa. Cover fee: R30 before 11pm and R40 after 11pm. Come early to pay less and party for longer! Payment to be made in cash as there will be no card machine at the door. Venue: The upstairs live music section of The Manila Bar Doors open at 8:30pm What to expect?
