Breaking down the rivalry of “real” and “fake” emo with Aldy Firstanto (Seems Like Yesterday) and Yudhis Agato (Vague / Jirapah).
For many years, the debate of real vs “fake” or “MTV” emo has created a divide between emo lovers everywhere. In this episode of Emo Night, our hosts Ekky, Rega and Gia are joined by Aldy Firstanto of Seems Like Yesterday and Yudhistira of Vague / Jirapah to ask the important questions. When did “fake” emo even become a thing? and why does it create such a divide within a shared community?
Nostalgia has become a key phrase in the entertainment industry. Most recently, we have seen the resurgence of Emo and its glory days. Through that, we are invited to relive the early 2000s where myspace, tumblr and your bangs were the most important things in the world. With more and more Emo themed events and parties resurfacing, this podcast is a fun and casual celebration of Emo and our nostalgic youth.
