Las Vegas (Aug. 24, 2022) — Today, Zouk Group announced that Emo Nite is coming to the Las Vegas Strip this fall as they kick off their first-ever residency at Zouk Nightclub at Resorts World Las Vegas. Emo Nite brings together dynamic duo Morgan Freed and T.J. Petracca as they deliver a brand-new epic stage show curated specifically for this residency. This electric, one-of-a-kind experience begins starting October 21.

Freed and Petracca began Emo Nite as a small dive bar party which quickly evolved into a full-blown music phenomenon. This new residency will give alternative music fans the chance to visit Las Vegas and experience Emo Nite in a new way as they enjoy a mix of both old emo favorites and newly crafted sounds exclusively at Zouk Nightclub.

Utilizing the advanced technological features that Zouk Nightclub has to offer, each show will be an extraordinary, unique experience featuring a mix of emo and pop punk classics with electronic dance music. To amplify guests’ experience, the duo will have a handful of special guests join them on stage including Zouk Nightclub resident artists Cash Cash and Louis the Child, among others.

“As a kid who grew up listening to Emo and Pop Punk music, I never really felt like I belonged at nightclubs, and I know there are thousands of other emo kids who feel the same,” says Emo Nite co- founder, T.J. Petracca. “We’re incredibly excited to be breaking down the barriers for the genre and bringing something totally new and different to one of the best nightclubs on the planet. We’ll be combining the tech and production of an EDM show and mixing it with the community and music that is at the core of our brand.”

“ We are always looking for new ways to enhance our guests’ experience and expand our lineup at Zouk Nightclub,” said Ronn Nicolli, Vice President of Zouk Group Las Vegas. “Emo Nite will welcome a new group of music lovers to Zouk Nightclub and we look forward to the exciting and unmatched energy they will bring to the venue.”

Current dates on sale to the public are:

  • October 21
  • October 22
  • November 23

Additional performance dates and ticket information will be announced in the coming weeks. For updates, visit or follow Zouk Group Las Vegas on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter.

About Emo Nite

Emo Nite was started by Morgan Freed and T.J. Petracca in December of 2014. What began as a party at a small dive bar in Echo Park quickly grew into a full-blown phenomenon. The movement has expanded from the tiny dive bar on LA’s east side to recurring events thrown by dozens of friends in over 30 cities worldwide, attracting some of the biggest names in music including Machine Gun Kelly, Post Malone, Good Charlotte, Demi Lovato and many more. Emo Nite continues to grow not only through their iconic monthly parties, but as a brand as a whole. The duo made their debut performances at Coachella and Hangout Music Festival this year, playing a set filled with emo and pop punk classics to packed crowds.
