Get ready to throw some elbows and show off your finest mosh pit moves, because we’re digging deep into murky shadows of the emo subculture for this one. We’re going to be giving you space to throw some elbows (but not shade, unless you really want to throw shade).
You may have guessed it from the event title, but the next Emo Night is going to revolve around the miraculous genre that is metalcore. But its also not going to revolve it. Look. Its going to be a regular Emo Night with maybe a few more angry, angsty people screaming into mics. There are going to be emo anthems, there are going to be alt-rock anthems, there are going to be metalcore anthems, there’s going to be some high-class floor rolling, and there is going to be a really great band.
We welcome one of our favourite local metal bands As Time Divides to the stage. They’ve been brewing up a storm in the metal scene with their face-melting brand of metalcore. They’ve opened for the likes of Our Last Night, Hands Like Houses, and Fit For The King. We’re really excited to have them perform for us.

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.
