This Party Sucks, a collective putting on gigs and events in South Yorkshire since 2014, has announced the launch of a new night dedicated solely to pop punk and emo music.
After nearly 3 years of working with local bands and venues in Sheffield, TPS has committed to a niche night that they believe the city needs.
The first event will take place on Friday 2nd of June at West Street venue, Fear x Loathing. The small capacity room, decorated like the bedroom of your past teenage angst-filled self, will provide the perfect setting for a party that in reality does not actually suck.
Expect a nostalgia-inducing playlist with an injection of the best new pop punk & emo acts.
Tickets are available from Skiddle, with limited Early Bird tickets still available for £3 and Advance tickets £4. The event is expected to sell out, with potentially no admissions on the door, so make sure to grab your tickets fast.
This Party Sucks hope that the success of the first event will lead to more regular events across the city for years to come.
TPS was created in 2014 by Kyle Tranter, who enlisted the help of a number of close friends to showcase local bands, support the UK scene and host fun parties. He has worked closely alongside members from local bands such as Havelocke, Cast Ashore and O Captain who’ve given up their time to support the shared goal of boosting the reputation of this genre of music in the city.
The Redhouse was its first home, but since then TPS has hosted events at Corporation, Frog and Parrot, The Rocking Chair, Vintage Rockbar, West Street Live, The Bridge Inn, Mulberry Tavern and more featuring acts such as Trash Boat, Pity Sex and Rob Lynch.
The name ‘This Party Sucks’ is taken from the name of a track from The Wonder Years, who are extremely relevant to the current pop punk and emo movement and the people involved in TPS.
