Flashback to 2007: your favorite pair of shoes is a worn-out pair of Converse with song lyrics written on them, “Sugar We’re Goin Down” is your Myspace Song, your AIM username reads something like xXRAwR123Xx, and there’s no such thing as too much eyeliner.
Sadly, ten years has passed. A lot of your favorite bands have since broken up (or even worse, they sold out and are releasing radio-pop records), while AIM and Warped Tour are on their deathbeds.
However, there’s good news!
You can relive all your teen angst at Emo Royale on Friday December 1. I’ll be there, and you’ll probably find me scream-crying the lyrics to “You’re So Last Summer” and reminiscing the time I met Adam Lazzara after Taking Back Sunday’s set at Warped Tour circa 2011.
The newest edition of the Royale family will include sets of Taking Back Sunday performed by Conman Economy, Fall Out Boy (pre-hiatus, obviously) performed by Zach Sullentrup & His Terrible 20s, Paramore performed by Between Elsewhere, and Never Shout Never performed by Blue Jay.
RIP AIM & WARPED TOUR </333
