From the press release announcing the tour:
3OH!3 and Emo Nite LA have joined together to announce a tour like no other – The WANT House Party Tour!!! Featuring special guest lil aaron, these shows are going to be an actual house party. Fans are going to be able to be a part of each night without the typical constraints of set times and with an opportunity to really interact and connect with artists, just as if you were throwing this party in your own living room. Nathaniel Motte and Sean Foreman of 3OH!3 shared that “We want to include people from different backgrounds, walks of life and foster an environment that breaks down the barrier between the artist and fans. We want to be able to throw a party, celebrating 10 years of WANT and bring the unique energy of Emo Nite along with the energy we have always had.” Pre-Sales begin today with all general tickets on-sale Friday, August 3rd at 10am Local Time.

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 bring together some of the most incredible names in music who have become part of this Emo Nite “family”, including Halsey, Sonny Moore (Skrillex) and From First to Last, Chris Carrabba (Dashboard Confessional), Mark Hoppus (Blink 182), Post Malone, Demi Lovato and so many more. Emo Nite has been throwing regular events in dozens of markets across the country and have had spots on lineups at festivals like Life is Beautiful, Slam Dunk, BUKU and Vans Warped Tour. Additionally, the founders have created successful clothing collabs with companies like OBEY, Urban Outfitters, PLEASURES, Rose in Good Faith, OWSLA and more. But above all else, they have changed the idea of what a music event can be.
“We’re really excited to throw these parties with 3OH!3 to celebrate their album WANT. These parties aren’t going to be your normal rock show… Sean and Nat wanted to return to their roots of playing party music with friends in basements and at house parties so what better place to do that than Emo Nite. It’s going to be nonstop action from start to finish and we’re gonna have tons of special guests and surprises along the way. We’ve always been friends and fans of 3OH!3 so we’re honored to be working with them on creating these unique experiences across the country” shared the Emo Nite founders on the announce of this unique tour.
The tour is a massive celebration of 3OH!3’s debut album, WANT, which was released in 2008. That’s right: ten years ago 3OH!3 burst onto the scene Kool-Aid Man-style and blasted the world’s eardrums with a brand new sound. The duo, fresh out of school (one foregoing medical school and the other forgoing a promising career as a bike-sandwich-delivery-guy) released their first single, “Don’t Trust Me” in June of 2008. The record found its way into the nation’s heart like bacon grease; blending undeniable synth magic with a tongue-in-cheek, extremely catchy hook. Like wildfire, “Don’t Trust Me” climbed the charts for 15 months before topping the Pop radio charts at Number One. Continue to stay glued to 3OH!3’s online accounts and socials for BIG anniversary news.
