The founders of Emo Nite LA are overjoyed to be premiering the short documentary “Every Nite is Emo Nite” exclusively with Paper Magazine. The film, directed by Anderson Wright, features three people that are pivotal figures in their city’s frequent events – Rocky, Dante and Brittany. The three of them live in different states and have different backgrounds and careers; besides this, they all have found a home in their respective Emo Nites that have become a staple in cities like Portland, Baltimore, San Francisco, Seattle, Phoenix, Los Angeles and many more. Brittany shared why Emo Nite was important to her, sharing “The music comes on, and everyone is equal.” The documentary and interview with the Director are available here.
After deciding to showcase the Emo Nite story, Wright shared “When you go to Emo Nite, you join a community of individuals who are connecting with music on a remarkably intense and personal level. This is a beautiful thing that I felt deserved to be explored in a film. I attended my first Emo Nite in Seattle, alone, on Valentine’s Day. The energy in that room was unlike anything I’d ever experienced. I found a connection with the music that was indescribably pure. Songs that I hadn’t heard in a decade filled me with emotions that I hadn’t felt since childhood. Lyrics that were stored deep inside of me began pouring out. That night was a cathartic experience.”
The Emo Nite founders recently announced Emo Nite Day, their largest event to date, in celebration of their 3-Year Anniversary. The event takes over Shrine Expo Hall in Los Angeles, CA on December 3rd, 2017, which will bring together every element that Emo Nite fans love including live performances and DJ sets on multiple stages, art installations, food trucks and more. Fans can head here to pick up tickets now.
Emo Nite LA is an event started by three friends (Babs Szabo, T.J. Petracca and Morgan Freed) and brings together people who share the love of emo rock music from the 90’s, 2000’s, and today. Different notable artists and musicians from all genres that have been inspired by emo and pop punk music have either DJ’d or performed at the events.
