DJs Theo Severson and Chris Wood, aka The Crate Brothers, are back with the first Emo Night Tampa since March ‘20, and they actually have a request for you.

We've waited a long time for this. So if you're feeling ill or whatever, please use consideration and stay home,” ENT wrote online. If you are, however, feeling good, the free patio show includes (besides the usual Sunny Day Real Estate, Jimmy Eat World and everything-in-between sets) the first ever performance of  the new-to-everyone Sum of Our Failures and the internet-infamous, IRL stupendous, Tampa indie-rock band Charles Irwin, whose new album is set to come out in a couple of weeks.

Emo Night also has some new shirts on hand plus vegan meats from Nah Dogs—so work those into your weekend budget. In a message to Creative Loafing Tampa Bay, Severson said ENT is going to throw a party at a new location every month until the end of the year, with next month’s installment set for everyone’s favorite dive bar. 

Emo Night Tampa! Return: Charles Irwin/Sum of our Failures/The Crate Brothers. Saturday, Sept. 4, 9 p.m. Free. Crowbar, Ybor City. @emo_night_tampa on Instagram
