Sugar We’re Going Down Singing.
, / 1 August 2016

We all have been through a lot of phases, like the one where you apply red eyeshadow heavily and your haircut have side-fringes with some surplus layers. You tend to edit your picture with glowy filters and added the word “RAWR” in it and upload it as your MySpace profile picture. Your jeans was so tight, you have to use plastic bags to get in it. Hanna Beth and Audrey Kitching was every girl’s role model. Well, those were the examples of your emo scene kid phase. So, on Saturday July 23rd we went to #SobatHumming’s Sugar We’re Going Down Singing! at Mondo By The Rooftop to relive our emo days in the 2000s.

It was so packed that night, even the outdoor area of Mondo was also crowded. There were a lot of people from the 2000’s scene who came, from the old ones to younglings, your childhood friends to your online friends. All were there. Singing, screaming, jumping, bodysurfing. All of them spilling their nostalgic feelings through the songs they used to sing out loud back in the days.

Ditto! At The Disco’s set was astonishing. We saw three members of Polka Wars singing and growling in the front row of the dance floor when Ditto played Hawthorne Heights. Dropdead Yudhis’ set was also delightful. It was so hot, and everyone was trying to sing out loud to the song that he played. After Dropdead Yudhis’s set was done, #SobatHumming’s crew played the request list that they have put in Facebook. The set was closed by the event’s name, Sugar We’re Going Down by Fall Out Boy. But then they played an encore song Persetan Dengan Dia by The Side Project.

There was also a Scene King and Queen photo competition. To join the contest you must share your emo phase picture in their facebook event page. The winner is Andra Semesta, because he was wearing a Bright Eyes t-shirt and singing on stage with Sansan of Pee Wee Gaskins on his 17th birthday. So emo. He got Rocket Rockers’s cassette as his prize.

That was probably the most fun and best night of our lives. It feels like we’re 16 again for one night. Everybody’s spilled their feelings and had fun together. Even the 5-O who came to the show, wondered and asked if that was really only a karaoke night.

Your emo phase was actually the greatest thing to ever happen to you. Wait, it’s not a even phase. It’s totally who you really are. Stay emo! Quoting Bethany Cosentino of Best Coast “Once you go emo, you never go back.”
