Empire Control Room
606 E. Seventh, 512/651-4690
Known first as Empire Garage thanks to the bloodline of its outdoor stage – an outdated auto body garage – Empire Control Room has risen in its short lifespan to serve as a dominating force in both hip-hop and electronic music, with ticketed roadshows and walk-up locals alike running indoor and outside, sometimes simultaneously. A bar featuring DJs splices between the two. The venue has been instrumental in swinging the Red River Cultural District eastward.
