Guess what! I finally got to experience Emo Nite again for the second time. I got to go with my best friend, the same person I went to Emo Nite the first time I went. Of course, I wore my SAD AS FUCK shirt I bought the time before. A few songs that were played that I sang at the top of my lungs were “Teenagers,” “Misery Business,” and “I Write Sins Not Tragedies.”
Being there that night was so amazing. You get to sing your favorite songs from when you were younger so loud; it’s a great feeling. And for me, doing this with a close friend, made it even more special.
If you have never attended Emo Nite before, you should definitely do so! Usually they are for 21+, but it is so worth the wait. They are going to tour soon with 3OH!3 with special guest Lil Aaron, and you can check out the dates below and get your tickets here.
We all have our favorite time of year whether it is a holiday, sports season, vacation time, etc. For me, it is right now when many bands announce that they are going on tour and they release the dates usually at the same time. It has always been the same routine for me every single year since about sophomore year of high school. Summer was great, I got to attend Vans Warped Tour yet again. It is now the end of summer and I am definitely not crying while I reminsce about my day(s) at Warped (yeah right!). I’m getting ready for school to begin once again – I have my new clothes, some of which are new band tees, and supplies – I am ready, but not too excited.
I’m scrolling through my Instagram feed and suddenly see the first of many tour announcements that will be taking place during the week or two. Then there’s another. And another. And yet again, another! I am beyond excited and worried because I really want to go out and see my favorites live but I also need to figure out a way to ask my mom for permission. I’m 22 but she treasts me as if I’m still 14 (it’s all good I guess).
It’s one announcement after another. I see it on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and I also get some bands’ tweets sent to my phone, so everything is blowing up with new upcoming tours! I’m exctied to see bands for the first time or the fourth time – it never gets old.
If you are planning on attending at least one upcoming show, I hope you have so much fun! And if you are not for whatever reason, there is always next time. Concerts are not going away.
Check out some of the tours coming up below!

This last Wednesday (8/1) I got to attend Sleeping With Sirens’ Chill Out Summer Acoustic Tour. It was the first acoustic tour I have attended and it was a great first experience. This was about my seventh time seeing this band live. Every time I watch them I fall more and more in love with their music.
Kellin Quinn, lead singer, isn’t one to give too many speeches during a show, but this one he did talk quite a bit. He was funny, sincere, and emotional. I even cried during his “Better Off Dead” talk.
They played new and old songs and together an amazing show was put together. They had three encore songs, their last one being “Kick Me” which they performed in an “electric” way as they called it.
Overall this show was so magical. The stage setup was so cool and beautiful at the same time with the lights. Their stage presence was welcoming, as in you could tell that the band members accepted everyone who was there. If you have never seen Sleeping With Sirens live before, definitely check them out next time they tour. You will not regret it!
Go here for presale tickets. Password is WANT. Go and have fun!
