A TRIBUTE to the pop punk and emo scenes from the early 2000s will rock Albury next weekend.
Run over two nights at the SS&A Club on June 28 and 29, the tribute shows come almost one year after the highly-successful, one-night tribute show in August attracted 700 people.
Albury-based singer Jake Casey said the theatrics, stage design and set lists would be bigger and better than last year.
"We wanted to up the ante from last year," he said.
"Last year we had a marching band walk out in the last song, Welcome to the Black Parade.
"We have 13 people in the bands and no goal is too big; if it can be done it will be done."
On Friday, June 28, the Pop Punk Tribute Show will channel the Ramones, Buzzcocks and Still Little Fingers among other pioneers in this style.
On Saturday, June 29, the Emo Tribute Show will deliver the best from My Chemical Romance, Fallot Boy and the Used.
TELL ME WHAT'S HAPPENING:
Casey said the emo scene had resonated with many teenagers and young adults in the early 2000s.
"Emo was a scapegoat for teens who didn't fit in; the music and bands gave them a voice," Casey said.
"The genre stood up against bullying.
"It was a totally non-discriminatory culture; it gave people a home."
Three bands will perform in the Friday night show with two bands and a DJ in the Saturday show.
There will be giveaways at the shows.
