ok idk if it’s bc im hungover or what but i’m sitting at laguardia airport feeling very emotional about last nite. selling out webster hall means so much to us. we started emo nite about 5 years ago as a way to listen to the music that we loved while out at a bar. in those 5 years we’ve faced our fair share of haters, imitators, and countless people who have told us ‘no.’ but we’ve kept on working our asses off every single day to make these parties the best they can possibly be bc we genuinely love these events and the community that has grown around them. so thank you to each and every one of you who showed up to party with us last nite or has shown up to party with us anywhere else across the world. thank you for bearing witness to all the crazy shit we’ve tried from mariachi bands to ballerinas to airplane flyovers and singing vampires. we love you all and can’t thank you enough for being a part of this journey with us. – T.J.
