Emo was once an era in music mainly overlooked by the general population. It looked different, it sounded different and for the most part had negative connotations. In recent years, we learned just how much of an effect this once niche style of music has had on pop culture. These days, a younger generation of music makers has married emo’s heart-on-sleeve narratives with pure pop and even hip-hop, defying stereotypes and cultivating new fan bases along the way. In this live podcast taping, hosted by the creators of Emo Nite, we’re bringing together the masterminds behind some of your favorite emo records, old and new. They’ll swap stories about creating the songs you love to scream at the top of your lungs, and discuss where emo is headed.
