You Need To Attend A Spooky Jukey This Month

Spooky Jukey (aka Emo Night Cleveland) is jam-packed with alternative emo/pop-punk music from the early 2000s, a costume contest and so much more.

You Need To Attend A Spooky Jukey This Month
Tabitha Timms

As an alternative music journalist and long-time emo night supporter, I can not stress enough how anyone who is a fan of pop-punk or early 2000s "emo" music needs to attend an Emo Night, luckily if you're from the Cleveland Area, you get the opportunity twice a month.

I've watched Emo Night Cleveland grow over the last year and it warms my heart. From themed nights such as Valentine's Day to Summer Bummer, to connecting with people you wouldn't meet otherwise, it's truly a rare experience. If you're still wondering what it is exactly, it's essentially a bar party, held at The Foundry Concert Club in Lakewood on the second Friday of the month and at B Side Liquor lounge on the last Friday of every month, with music being spun from band's such as Fall Out Boy, Say Anything, Taking Back Sunday, Panic! At The Disco and many more. The Dj, Amanda Schill, keeps the crowd entertained and hands away free tickets to upcoming alternative shows and the night goes on. The Dj may change, which adds a bit of diversity, but you can usually catch Andrew Wells snapping some pictures, or setting up an own photo booth complete with props, depending on the event.

Seeing as this month is October, both events are Halloween themed, I got the chance to attend the one held at The Foundry on Oct. 12. The night was full of excitement, I went with a couple friends and my boyfriend as we all dressed in costume for the occasion. Not only is it always a blast getting dolled-up for Halloween, but it also helped that if you won Emo Night's costume contest you won a year of free tickets through BravoArtist, an awesome booking company known to present some of the hottest alternative music shows that hit the Cleveland/Columbus area.

Once we arrived at the venue, the bartenders kept the large crowd happy by swiftly pouring and handing out drinks, the atmosphere was light and fun and the music really brought all attendees together. The Dj's spinning this event was Justin Garci and Blossom Reynolds, who did an impeccable job of keeping the crowd's energy up by playing songs like "Wow, I Can Get Sexual Too" by Say Anything to All Time Low's cover of "Umbrella-" originally performed by Rihanna.

There's really not another night like Emo Night especially if you grew up as an emo kid, I remember thinking I would never meet anyone that was as passionate about this particular music scene like I was and now suddenly I'm surrounded my friends, new and old all with the same interest.

As for the costume contest we lost, Bob's Burger's won, it's the experience and effort that counts. Although winning a year of free concert tickets would make my bank account smile.

Catch the next Spooky Jukey at B Side Liquor Lounge, on Oct. 26, you don't want to miss it.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
