Emo's has and always will be a little rough around the edges. Originating in the punk rock trenches of the Red River Music District in the early 90's, the initial venue brought an authentic personality that helped shape Austin's thriving live music scene. The new venue, formally the influential Back Room, now boasts a state-of-the-art sound system, complete with quality lighting and staging capabilities. With the history of two legendary Austin venues in its blood, the rock 'n' roll spirit lives on at 2015 East Riverside Drive. On any given night you will find some of the best bands and the most colorful staff and patrons in all of Austin sitting at the bar. All shows are all ages, unless otherwise noted. Only those 21 years of age or older, of course, may partake of alcoholic beverages. People of any age can tip the bartenders, though. So come visit, and please remember not to feed the crackheads on the corner. As for cover, the entire door take goes to the bands.
