story / Ariana Tibi photo/ Sarah Noel How do you capture love when you receive it? Does it feel the same as when you give it away? And where does…
Emo Nite started in Los Angeles, as an event started by three friends: Babs Szabo, T.J. Petracca and Morgan Freed at a small dive bar where they simply just “wanted to play their favorite music.” “We honestly thought Emo Nite would be a one-time event at a small dive bar where 15 of our friends would show up,” Babs says. Little did they know, the event would morph into a huge monthly event, bringing together people who share the love of emo rock music from the 90's, 2000's, and today — changing the idea of what a music event can be. In its’ original format, Imagine that downstairs (let’s say at The Echoplex in Los Angeles) you’ve got some of the biggest names from the original emo-era like Mark Hoppus of Blink 182, DJing remixes of your favorite emo songs. Then, upstairs (possibly at The Echo) emerging bands like I DON’T KNOW HOW BUT THEY FOUND ME are playing some of their first shows
From the hip hop heavy and seemingly aggressive “Shut Em Up,” to the more vibey and more traditionally “pop,” “Electric” and “The Only One” — Lauren explores new ground from her previous work, mixing a bit of practically every genre into an amalgamation of ear candy.
LA-based bop-masters K808 and Khaledzou, a.k.a. MUNNYCAT, get real about soundtracking commercials, their latest single "Check It" and making music the weird way.
Los Angeles duo KidEyes have been through a lot — considering both members were previously in successful bands but had both left for various reasons. Guitarist Ben Epand and Vocalist Greg Cahn were looking for a way to collaborate and make music anew in a different capacity — and once they met each other, they knew they’d found a new musical home.
The show was created by industry veteran Robin Lindsley Allen, who has worked with icons like Prince and, of course, the Pussycat Dolls — so you can imagine the level of talent in the cast of these girls, including one of my personal faves, a Los Angeles based choreographer/dancer/actress everyone simply calls, “Jersey.” Jersey hangs from the ceiling doing an acrobatic number to Janet Jackson’s “Black Cat,” while other girls dance with cigarettes hanging from their lip, and spraying whipped cream all over the audience — and finally, all end up joining forces to none other than Lenny Kravitz’ “American Woman.”
SUR is somehow the modern day much cooler vibe that Kid Rock wished he could be, but just never quite made it...
