There are also plenty of photo opportunities, including a Polaroid photo booth with unique props like crying-face masks of Swift's infamous exes Jake Gyllenhaal and John Mayer. The first 50 people to arrive will receive handmade friendship bracelets.
The night of angsty fun is being hosted by local theme party organizers Riot Nerd in collaboration with Tina Baer, a TikTokker who coined the term "Swemo" to describe the intersection between Taylor Swift and emo music fandoms.
Tickets can be purchased in advance online for $15 plus fees, or can be bought the day of the event. The party is 21-and-older.
