This week, Andrea sits down with Chris Payne to talk about his new book Where Are Your Boys Tonight? The Oral History of Emo’s Mainstream Explosion 1999-2008. He’s got a list of credits a mile long, covering music for publications like Alternative Press, Vulture, and Billboard where he spent seven years as a staff writer and podcast host covering alternative and independent music. Andrea and Chris talk about the various scenes that birthed the bands who ushered in the emo movement of the early 2000s and the songs that best represent that moment in time. Payne has curated such a vast collection of voices from every corner of the scene(s) at the time, from members of bands like Lifetime, Thursday, Fall Out Boy, and Taking Back Sunday, to the people who watched those bands skyrocket to emo royalty (Hanif Abdurraqib, Jamie Coletta, Chris Gethard). Where Are Your Boys Tonight? is full of candid conversations, recollections, and memories that tell a remarkable story of a truly unique moment in music.
