Jonny Craig - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
Jonny Craig
Jonny Craig began his singing career between the ages of 16-17 as the lead vocalist for Seattle based indie band Ghost Runner on Third in 2002. He received positive reviews with this new band's debut EP, Speak Your Dreams. Allmusic stated that Craig was quote: "the band's secret weapon, a passionate vocalist who doesn't rely on the usual emo techniques (belligerent screaming, post-hardcore barking, whiny moralizing -- that sort of thing) to put across his angsty lyrics. There's not a bad track to be found here, but Craig tends to outshine his bandmates throughout."

Early on in his career with Ghost Runner On Third, it has been cited that overwhelming drug problems led to his departure as told by Dance Gavin Dance in their old blog concerning Jonny Craig after he quit the band. Though Jonny Craig has denied the statements made, Dance Gavin Dance has not backed off from those remarks, which they explain was the reason for all the band's problems and partly for his former band Ghost Runner on Third. Dance Gavin Dance has also blamed Sean O'Sullivan's departure in part of constant disputes and problems with the other band members, but mostly with Jonny Craig.

Craig is now the lead singer for Emarosa.

Despite their past differences, both past and present members of Dance Gavin Dance have since become friends. Consider the Thief (Sean O'Sullivan's current band), were also listed in Emarosa's Relativity album on the special thanks section of the booklet.
