Emo Nite 

Beginning as a throwback night in 2014 in Los Angeles, Emo Nite became wildly popular with aging millennials. The now-national tour plays hits from early 2000’s pop-punk bands like Fallout Boy and Paramore for the generation who wants to scream out their favorite angsty lyrics because they will never be able to afford to buy their own home.

“Journey Home” Starring Joyce DiDonato

There will also be souvenirs available, themed cocktails and personalized photo postcards to share with friends and family near or far.
