Sugar: The Nu-Metal Party

Touring Nü-Metal DJ Party Night ‘Sugar: The Nu-Metal Party’ To Kickoff This Spring


Seemingly taking a queue from the ‘Emo Nite‘ festivities, a forthcoming nü-metal leaning event will soon be traveling across the country. Dubbed ‘Sugar: The Nu-Metal Party‘, that event will be celebrating all things nü, leaning into the late 90s/early 2000s tracks and artists that spearheaded the movement, while also sprinkling in songs from the current revivalists.

Among the latter artists listed were Bad Omens, Code Orange, Tallah, Wargasm, Spiritbox and Turnstile.Brian Howe, lead DJ and production manager for the event, commented:

“I think that nu-metal is one of the most impactful subgenres of heavy metal to ever exist in terms of how it rippled through the pop-culture of the time.

It’s already been about 25 years since bands like Korn and Limp Bizkit were all over MTV and if every other culturally significant genre of music from the past 5 decades can have its own dance night why not nu-metal?

As someone who loved listening to these bands as a kid and enjoys going out with friends as an adult it just makes perfect sense for us to create a ‘nu’ space where these bands and the genre can be celebrated.”
