VoodooHoney likes to keep things interesting. On top of curating original events like A Nightmare On Center Street and the Supper Club Jazz series, the Jay Anderson-led record label and creative collective has also helped pay tribute to legends like Bjork and Amy Winehouse during its fairly brief existence. This Valentine’s Day, they’ll take the tribute show in a drastically different direction with “A Very Emo Valentines.”
On Wednesday, February 14 (Valentine’s Day), a skilled backing band will take the stage at Company Brewing to accompany the likes of Zed Kenzo, Britney Freeman-Farr (aka B~Free), Fernando Arias, Yasmeen Daniel, and Mario Betancourt Lanza to perform songs “in the spirit of Riverwest Valentine’s Day sadness.” Some of the “emo” acts who will be covered at the event are Bright Eyes, My Chemical Romance, Fall Out Boy, Yellowcard, 30 Seconds To Mars, Paramore, Hawthorne Heights, Panic At The Disco, The Killers, and more.
While we have no idea whether this cast of musicians could possible enhance some of these embarrassing songs from the early aughts, we’re excited to watch them try. The show begins at 9 p.m. and costs $10 at the door.
