Skrillex Will Lead From First to Last at 'BUKU Late' 2019 Emo Nite Afterparty
The emo resurgence is real, spurred by the popularity of Los Angeles' Emo Nite party series. The event was founded by three emo-loving friends, and the trio has since expanded the concept to include two full-day festivals, curating festival events, and in 2019, Emo Nite LA goes on a North American tour. The most exciting part? Emo Nite LA brings From First to Last to an official afterparty for BUKU Music + Art Project called BUKU Late, and yes, Skrillex will sing.
Skrillex is scheduled as a headliner of BUKU alongside his partner Boys Noize as the two revive their rare electro-metal duo Dog Blood. The band's famous lead singer-turned-DJ/producer will be joined by drummer Derek Bloom, lead guitarist and keyboardist Matt Good, and rhythm guitarist and vocalist Travis Richter. It will be Skrillex's first time singing with the group since FFTL performed onstage at Emo Nite in LA in 2017. The band has since released two singles: 2017's "Make War" and 2018's "Surrender."
Tickets go on sale Friday at noon CT. BUKU tickets will not be honored for admission to the Emo Nite afterparty. Likewise, those without tickets to BUKU are able to attend with valid ticket purchase. VIP tickets include a limited-edition T-shirt, a vinyl copy of "Make War" / "Surrender," as well as VIP-only entry and balcony viewing.
From First to Last is only scheduled to perform at the BUKU afterparty date in New Orleans. Check the full list of Emo Nite LA tour dates below. For more details and information, visit emonite.com.
