From First To Last to Perform at Emo Nite LA After Party in New Orleans

New Orleans, LA Emo Nite LA, with BUKU Music + Art Project, have announced a very special “BUKU Late” After-Party show with From First To Last. The lineup will feature drummer Derek Bloom; lead guitarist and keyboardist Matt Good; rhythm guitarist and vocalist Travis Richter; and lead vocalist and guitarist Sonny Moore a/k/a Skrillex, whose Dog Blood project with Boys Noize is headlining BUKU. The rare show will be the first performance from the band since their 2017 reunion at Emo Nite’s acclaimed Los Angeles party, which marked their first time playing together in over a decade.

Tickets are on sale here starting this Friday, February 15th at 12pm CT.  Admission to the show is independent from BUKU and must be purchased separately. Both General Admission and VIP tickets are available.  VIP tickets include: one (1) exclusive “Make War” / “Surrender” vinyl; one (1) limited edition From First To Last t-shirt designed in collaboration with lifestyle brand PLEASURES, VIP-only balcony viewing and VIP-only early entry to the venue.
Doors for the show will open at midnight CT on the evening of Friday, March 22nd just as BUKU is ending. Patrons must be 18 years or older to attend.
Emo Nite LA, the event started by three friends (Babs Szabo, T.J. Petracca and Morgan Freed) at a small dive bar, has grown into a full-blown phenomenon. They have been able to cultivate unique parties bringing together fans and artists alike to celebrate their mutual love of music.
Emo Nite has curated two full-day festivals with Emo Nite Day while also booking coveted spots on lineups at festivals like Life is Beautiful, Slam Dunk, the Vans Warped Tour, Firefly and BUKU in addition to their own independent touring. Emo Nite LA has truly made themselves a mainstay of the entertainment calendar across the country. Outside of curating one of a kind events, the Emo Nite founders have created successful clothing collabs with companies like OBEY, Urban Outfitters, PLEASURES, Rose in Good Faith, Chinatown Market, OWSLA and more while currently featuring an exclusive collection within Hot Topic stores across the US and online.
Artists from in and out of the scene including The Used, Good Charlotte, Andrew McMahon, Halsey, From First to Last with Sonny Moore, Demi Lovato, New Found Glory, Mark Hoppus, The All-American Rejects, Post Malone, All Time Low, Machine Gun Kelly and more have all attended, performed or guest DJ’d at Emo Nite LA events over the last five years. Above all else, Emo Nite LA brings together people who share the love of emo rock music from the 90’s, 2000’s, and today, changing the idea of what a music event can be. For more information on Emo Nite LA, head to
