2015 E. Riverside, 888/512-7469

David Brendan Hall

Emo’s is dead; long live Emo’s! For decades, the name was cemented to the grubby Red River venue with the tin roof, wooden pillar mid-stage, and Johnny Cash’s stool hanging over the bar. These days, it’s the name over the door of the former Back Room on the rapidly gentrifying East Riverside, and melds that venue’s history as Austin’s metal center with Emo’s reputation for punk, alt, and indie. The spacious 1,700 capacity room opened in 2011 and has expanded its repertoire with more rap and electro.
