PUNK vs. EMO
The Evaluation of Punk and Emo

Four top genre bands The Rabble, False Start, The Explicit & Scenic Drive showcase the differences between punk and emo in music and fashion at Ellen Melville Hall from 7.30pm on Saturday 11 August.

The Rabble's Chazz and Rupe Hill-Hayr grew up listening to The Sex Pistols and The Clash, so when they started playing their instruments together out of boredom, punk rock was a big influence. Punk Rock began in the mid to late 1970s with songs being short, fast and hard with attitude and aggression. Punk rockers were known to wear self modified clothes with intention to shock, often wearing bondage pants with offensive slogans across their shirts. The fashion is also a big influence for The Rabble. "It means we can be original with what we wear" says Chazz.

Andrew Morrison from False Start listened to a lot of mainstream punk rock when he first got in to music. "We've always called ourselves a pop punk band" says Andrew. For the first year False Start were together, they had no idea the 'e' word would be pinned on their band. "We've always played the same style of music and dressed the same as we do now. We've only been labelled emo recently" says Andrew. The term "emo" (short for emotional) originated in the 1980s to describe a style of music that evolved from Washington D.C. hardcore but more recently to describe a persons dark mood or dress sense.

Come along and represent or experience the culture with The Rabble, False Start, The Explicit and Scenic Drive at this all ages event. Presales are $10.00 plus a booking fee through Real Groovy & iTICKET - Book at Iticket or phone iTICKET (09) 361 1000
