2/14: Valentines Day Roundup

Whether you need a last minute date with your significant other or you have an affinity for seasonal emo dance parties (you’ll see), we got you covered. Here’s a roundup of what’s going down on everyone’s favorite greeting card holiday.

Palehound and Weaves with guest Idle Bloom at The Basement: Doors open at 8 p.m. for this event, and advanced tickets can be purchased online for twelve dollars.

Phoebe Bridgers with Soccer Mommy at Cannery Ballroom: Originally scheduled at the High Watt, Phoebe Bridgers’ show with Nashville native Soccer Mommy had to be moved to Cannery Ballroom due to an overwhelming demand. Tickets originally purchased for the High Watt will be honored, and more tickets are available online. The show starts at 8 p.m.

An Eerie ’70s Glam Love Party at American Legion Post 82: Tarotology, vinyl, and performances by Tristen, Ryan Sambol of The Strange Boys, and MJ Vision Group—welcome to a 1970s technicolor dreamscape. The jury is still out on whether or not there will be a kissing booth. I guess you’ll just have to go to find out. Vintage or party dress is encouraged.

Stupid Cupid: An Emo Valentine’s Dance Party: Bring a date, or don’t. That’s up to you. But you must bring your feelings. The party begins at 7 p.m. and tickets are five dollars. A special couples deal is available online.

The Womb Booking: A Valentine’s Day Show: Co-sponsored by queer-run cassette label Banana Tapes, musicians, visual artists, and spoken word poets will gather at Atmalogy at 7:30 p.m. to share the love. OutCentral will be collecting menstrual products for the homeless.
