Emo Nite Heading Back to Paper Tiger for All Your Seasonal Sadness


  • Jaime Monzon
It’s no secret that San Antonio loves its emo music. From our well-documented (and oft-tormented) Morissey obsession to our tendency to pack into shows by acts like Glassjaw, Thursday and Panic! at the Disco (just to name a few), there’s just something about sadness that we find sexy (or otherwise liberating).

As such, this holiday season we expect to see a ton of y’all at Emo Nite, an event hosted by a Texas group of the same name that makes its bread by throwing parties to celebrate said sonic sadness. With the season in full swing, we’re sure you can find plenty of things to bemoan. And, who knows, in the act of congregating with others, around music you love, you might just find that everything, even if just for a little while, seems like it might be OK after all.

$10-$15, Fri Dec. 21, 9pm, Paper Tiger, 2410 N. St. Mary’s St.,
