Touring the world one pair of headphones at a time...

Oct 30, 2016

I know, I know, it feels like the emo scene show has taken forever, but whatever, it's done when it's done, and it's done now, so you can walk through that weird step-child from post-punk, post-hardcore and pop-punk and see what all the fuss is about.

This is one of those genres I love to bits, so it's a massive show, full of all sorts of great stuff. It runs long, is full of a bunch of bands you'll probably love and if not, well, okay, I guess they can't all be winners.

There's too much music for me to dwell on some of the stuff associated with emo - the fashion, the reports of self-harm (and whether that's a reflection of the music or the feelings expressed in it), the rise of "screamo" (and how that's mostly really just post-hardcore) and whether or not emo is a descendant of goth rock (you could make the case either way).
