Openers Goody Grace and Allday have some pretty catchy pop tunes in their catalog as well.

3 OH!3

Date: Wednesday, Oct. 31, 2018

Price: $25 advance or $30 day of

The legendary Boulder duo had a recent sold-out performance at the Aggie earlier in the spring, but under the added title of “Emo Nite,” the Aggie Theatre could be the Halloween hotspot for self-loathers everywhere, in a good way. “Emo Nite’s” Facebook explains that they are not a band or DJ’s, just people who “throw parties for the music (they) love.” Fans can see the future of emo music courtesy of the show’s opener: up and coming rapper lil aaron, who boasts a song with Travis Barker.

The Black Dahlia Murder

Date: Tuesday, Nov. 27, 2018

Price: $25 advance or $30 day of

Michigan death metal band The Black Dahlia could make you snap your neck from headbanging. If the throat obliterating vocals fused with the blood pumping guitar playing does not do the trick, there are few things that will. But for fans leaning towards the sound of deathcore, Knoxville based band Whitechapel will make an appearance to the Aggie Theatre at Nov.  25.
