The year is 2003 and you just removed your BFF from your top eight because they allegedly came out with your ex in three days at a screening of Jeepers Creepers 2. You feel your emotions, so you decide to let the poetry flow on a bulletin post, where you just copy and paste texts from Brand New’s “Play Crack the Sky”, And you decide to change your profile picture to something a little more representative of your whole world collapsing, so you snap what they recently called a“ selfie ”, your hair swinging over one eye like a sad and stiff waterfall, the other eye squeezed in black eyeliner, not a drop of joy to be found on your tormented duck face.

For some of us, it’s a hell of a blessing Myspace accidentally deleted years of old photos and content, which is what happened in 2019. For others, it marked the official end of an era where the word “rawr” was both a warning and a warning and one where your channel-bound vans carried the weight of your precious world from hardcore show for hardcore show with much needed pitstops on Hot Topic.

Well, kids with good news and emo-adults – Myspace Emo Prom offers a chance to relive the days of beating and crying and SIG away messages that were definitely aimed at a specific person. Emo Revivalists Taking Back Emo serves favorites from acts like AFI, Fall Out Boy, My Chemical Romance, Paramore, Dashboard Confessional and more.

Doors open at 8pm Saturday, Sept. 4 at Magic Bag; 22920 Woodward Ave., Ferndale; 248-544-1989; themagicbag.com. Tickets are $ 15.
