Emo Night Tampa stages sold-out 'Emo Lite' acoustic concert in Seminole Heights

Jonas, Eyelid Cinema and Ann Mansfield play the porch hang.

Emo Nite Tampa is going acoustic this weekend for a porch hang concert outside Seminole Heights’ Jug & Bottle on Saturday, Aug. 20.

Tampa bands Eyelid Cinema and Anne Mansfield (of Knife Rituals and Nervous Girls) play hometown support and make way for Sarasota-based songwriter Jonas G whose other projects—Floating Boy and Cherish This—play twee jangle-pop and post-hardcore.
