1822 Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90026

9:00pm

So I guess this is growing up… Emo Night is moving to the Echoplex! We’re super grateful to the Short Stop for giving Emo Night it’s start. Those first two nights were legendary, but we want to makedamnsure everyone can get in to sing the sorrow with us, because HEY! YOU’RE PART OF IT!

We got older, but we’re still young. Let’s stay 18 forever. Lace up your converse, slip on your vans, ask your mom to send you that Bright Eyes t-shirt gathering dust in your closet back home. We’ll be dancing with our ghosts, toasting note to note. Come on, take her out on a Tuesday night. Wear cologne to get the feeling right. Honest, let’s make this night last forever. 

GUEST DJ SET FROM MARK HOPPUS!

Ghettoside: A True Story of Murder in America

Jill Leovy in conversation with Warren Olney
