The Menzingers and Tigers Jaw recently announced that they will headline a holiday show in their hometown of Scranton on December 21st. Playing at the St Stanislaus Youth Center alongside other local acts like Captain We’re Sinking, Three Man Cannon, Halfling, and more, this is as much a holiday celebration as it is a celebration of how much good music has come out of the Philly burbs and eastern Pennsylvania in the past few years. Especially in the way of emo and indie punk, The Menzingers and Tigers Jaw are often cited as artists that are “bringing emo back.” Not that it ever really went away, but it is good to see these bands getting recognition and holding gatherings of this sort. There will be a total of nine bands playing on the lineup, and it is a mere $15, so it is sure to sell out by the day of the show. Plan ahead and get your tickets here.

    I love that the Menzingers are featured here and Scranton is getting deserved face time but it is utterly offensive to say that they are bringing emo back? Rachel, have you listened to them?? I consider emo more like saves the day and I guess alkaline trio but the Menzingers just rock and make me damn proud of them and Scranton
