LA's Emo Nite, a monthly event that celebrates the era of MySpace, skinny jeans, and community, just celebrated their two year anniversary with huge, sold-out events. The parties were streamed on Twitch and the $50,000 raised from the event went to benefit local LA charities.
There were over 2,000 people in attendance, who partied with Tyson Ritter and Nick Wheeler of The All-American Rejects, Aaron Gillespie (Underoath/The Almost), Jordan Pundik (New Found Glory), Craig Owens (Chiodos/BXC), Cartel, Set Your Goals, State Champs, Fil Thorpe-Evans (Neck Deep), Tyler Posey, The Rocket Summer, Brian Logan Dales (The Summer Set), My American Heart, Captain Cuts, Ham on Everything, Team Up (UK), the Emo Nite Bawltimore Team, Movements, I Don't Know How But They Found Me, Tillie, Luna Shadows and Love Nothing.

TJ Petracca, the founder of Emo Nite, said,"It's honestly pretty surreal. This whole thing has gotten way bigger than we ever imagined or intended it to get. I'm so honored and happy to be celebrating two years of this party. We have made some amazing new friends, got to travel and see a ton of new cities, and meet our idols/heroes. Stepping back and looking at it from afar... I truly can't believe it."
What started as an idea to celebrate nostalgia has turned into a global affair, gathering communities together and providing a safe place to express values.
