Two Chambers, One Dark Heart

Secret Oktober and Elysium

From the Armadillo World Headquarters for the cosmic cowboys, to Emo's for punk, every scene needs a home. Austin's goth crowd is blessed with two. Whether you're of the Sisters of Mercy heavy boots and trench coat ilk, or pumped for action in your cybergoth finest, Secret Oktober has your sartorial choices covered. Plus, they're the best place to pick up tickets for shows at Elysium, Austin's preferred touring stop for all musical acts goth, industrial, or just generally morbid. If you wear black in midsummer, then they're your (skeletal) family.
