The Signs Of Austin


603 Red River St

One of Austin’s most beloved music venues actually got its start in Houston. The second location of Eric “Emo” Hartman’s club opened up in a former country & western bar on Red River St in 1992. The club mysteriously shut down in 2011 and was moved to a location on Riverside Drive that was the former home of the influential Back Room. The Houston location has been closed down since 2001.
