He might just be "scene". Scene and emo kids dress pretty much the same way, but act differently. Scene kids kind of act like skaters...emo kids get overly dramatic about the smallest things in life.
Emo kids are the "I hurt myself so that I can feel alive!" bunch. The "You couldn't possibly understand what I'm going through" kids. The "rip my black cold heart out of my chest and throw it on the ground" kids. The good news is, when emo kids outgrow that phase, many of them become hipsters, which is great for the future of film. Hipsters love film.
hahhaha! I forgot about scene kids! Hah!
And I like the whole hipster transition mindset good call!
