Tired of the hipster-rock grind? Established in 2014 as an alternative on the southeast side of Austin, the 4,000-capacity Coliseum, aka El Coliseo, specializes in Latin and Tejano acts from across the spectrum. The club also brings in established R&B veterans and country acts, plus DJs for old-fashioned booty shaking. Established by the same owners of several Dallas clubs, the Coliseum fills a niche the indie rock clubs don’t even consider.
