For the last WBGU-FM Emo Night this semester, emo kids will gather to revel in music from their favorite bands from the early 2000s scene — and from The Juice Company.

The Juice Company is a Bowling Green band with a mix of emo, folk and punk sounds. The guys from TJC will be rocking Howard’s Club H for the first part of the night with covers of classics and some originals, too.

Bowling Green’s Discount Nostalgia bassist Mike Stram gave a glowing review of The Juice Company and encouraged students to get to Howard’s for the event.

“Juice Company definitely have some emo flavors, and they’re a fantastic band, so you really have no excuse not to come and support your local sad music,” Stram said.

The second part of the night will feature all the emo classics as spun by DJ Penny Rae Hawkins to the tune of emo kids beating a WBGU-FM mascot piñata full of feelings.

With this being the station’s last promotional event of the semester, WBGU-FM will say goodbye to Promotions Director Brooke Jones and welcome multiplatform journalism major and popular culture minor Alicia Kobasic to fill Jones’ shoes.

As Jones passes off her promotional responsibilities to Kobasic, she said she’ll miss the connections made at events like Emo Nights.

“I think Emo Night has connected groups of students who run in different circles. (WBGU-FM) sees all types of different people at our Emo Nights, and it’s cool to see them connect with each other and us through music.

“Life is stressful, so it’s nice to see students especially come to our events to get away from the stress of papers and exams. I think that’s what I’m going to miss the most,” Jones said.

Kobasic wants to continue growing these connections between WBGU-FM and the campus and city communities.

“I think I am most excited for working to recruit more people to be a part of the station. As well as working with everyone currently involved in WBGU-FM to figure out what we can do to get our name out there and grow the amount of listeners we have,” Kobasic said.

Come get #FalconSad with WBGU-FM one last time this semester tonight at 9 p.m. at Howard’s.
