For a number of years now Nashville Is The Reason and Emo Night Nashville have been hosting some of the coolest parties in town for fans of emo, pop punk, hardcore, and indie, often featuring guest DJs from renowned local and national bands, and regularly bringing to town live acts like Pennsylvania’s The Emo Band, who play backing band to live karaoke for some seriously nostalgic emo covers.
Following a successful similar party a few months ago, Emo Night Nashville is set to return Saturday, Aug. 20 at Marathon Music Works, boasting yet another supersized event, featuring not only the return of The Emo Band, but also a seriously star-studded slate of guests: Max Bemis (Say Anything), Matt Thiessen (Relient K), Derek, Jake, & Alex of Mayday Parade, William Beckett (The Academy Is…), John Harvie, Ariel Bloomer (Icon for Hire), Alex Howard, YOUTHYEAR, Allistair, ROARA, QVINT, Caroline Romano, Winona Fighter, Chase Huglin, and DJ Sheemo.
While not exactly a full-on concert, this also is far from just a DJ night. Expect musical guests to jump up with The Emo Band to tackle some of their own favorite covers (and yes, some DJ sets throughout), plus some additional fun and the typical Marathon libations. All and all, it promises to be a night of nostalgia, singalongs, and a chance to see some of the coolest artists both from in town and renowned within the pop punk scene perform in a very unique and intimate way!
While you can still buy tickets to the party right here, we’re thrilled to announce that we’re also giving away a pair of tickets to one lucky winner! Enter below, and scroll for a preview of just a handful of the evening’s special guests.
Emo Night Nashville returns Saturday, Aug. 20 to Marathon Music Works. The show is 18+, begins at 8 p.m. (doors at 7 p.m.), and tickets are available to purchase for $25-100.
