Time Out says
Did Emo Nite single-handedly bring back pop-punk or did it just so happen to ride one of the first waves of late-’90s nostalgia before it became TikTok-ified? (We’re going to side with the former.) Regardless, cake on the eyeliner at this emo dance party. This throwback night started at the Short Stop in 2015 as Taking Back Tuesday and proved so popular that it quickly moved to the Echo and Echoplex. These days, Emo Nite has become a bona fide institution, with lines around the block and surprise appearances from the likes of Blink 182’s Mark Hoppus and former From First to Last Frontman Sonny Moore (a.k.a. Skrillex).
