Emo Night time Brooklyn is coming to Montauk this weekend

The event is called Emo Night Brooklyn and will stop at the Clam and Chowder House on Salivar’s Dock in Montauk on Saturday, August 3rd, from 6pm to 9pm this summer as it travels from city to city. There is no coverage for this event.
Green Day, Blink-182, My Chemical Romance, Fall Out Boy, and Paramore are just a few of the bands and artists that define an Emo Night Brooklyn event.
“We’re going to bring the party,” wrote Ethan Maccoby, co-founder of Emo Night Brooklyn, via email. “We love to romp in new places, and an outdoor party in Montauk sounds amazing. We look forward to bringing together groups of great people who love this music and love to party. “
According to Emonightbk.com, the founders, Mr. Maccoby and Alex Badane, were best friends “who grew up listening to music, going to shows and throwing some epic parties together”.
After hosting their first event at the Cameo Gallery in 2015, they found that it was not only one of the best nights of their lives, but the lives of those who came to the event, which made them a “monthly staple” in New York did.
The event is growing in success and popularity, and it also attracts former band members such as Ryan Key of Yellowcard and Jordan Pundik of New Found Glory as guest DJs.
“It’s amazing to see that this type of music doesn’t have just one big spot or two,” Maccoby wrote via email. “Alternative / emo / pop-punk music is widely loved by different groups of people in different parts of the world. It’s also interesting to switch which songs we play in different cities as there are so many great bands that are especially loved by a local scene.
“People everywhere also love to party and let go.”
According to Hali Devlin, the manager of Clam and Chowder House on Salivar’s Deck, the event will take place on the roof.
Although the event was originally scheduled for 9:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m., Maccoby said the time was changed to 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. “due to outdoor music permits in Montauk”.
“Get ready for the party,” wrote Mr. Maccoby. “No cover, let’s mosh, romp, scream and dance and have fun. Oh and tell all of your friends. “
