In a world where the Emo subculture is dying, one group of rag-tag misfits is coming out of their cage to save it, and they’re doing just fine (sort-of) at it. Join Emo Night South Africa in yet another year of heart-pounding rhythms, unrequited love, nostalgic teen angst, and fading out on the chorus more often than is necessary.
This is Bangerz For My Valentine, and tears will fall.
Emo Night is back once again and it feels like we have been gone for far too long, but we survived the festive season and are ready to drag ourselves kicking and screaming into the New Year. This is going to be a year of trying out new things in a familiar setting. We will once again be returning to the hallowed halls of Mercury Live, but this time we are bringing some bands with us.
Each Emo Night is going to give a platform some of our favourite up-and-coming alternative bands in Cape Town. The first band that will be performing with us is a pop punk outfit called Shit Friends, who will be delivering some sublime covers of Emo classics. We look forward to sharing the stage with Shit Friends and many other bands in the future.

Emo Night is a conceptually unique event based on celebrating the music associated with the peak of the Emo subculture in the mid-2000s, and any of the music that may have sprung up because of the subculture. It is a party for all those who crave an alternative nightclub.
