Emo's is a prominent nightclub located in Austin, Texas.[1] Emo's got its start as a Houston punk club in 1989, with the Austin location opening in 1992.[2] The Houston location closed its doors in September 2001.[3]

The nightclub is an official South by Southwest Music Festival venue, during which it consists of four stages.[4] The annual Emissions from the Monolith festival relocated to Emo's in 2007.[5] The club closed in December 2011 for reasons unknown, however in September of that same year, a new venue named Emo's East opened up on East Riverside, on the site of the old Back Room venue.[6]

On Feb 11, 2013, Emo's announced they were being sold to C3 Presents, the booking agent/production company behind Austin City Limits Festival and Lollapalooza, among other endeavors. [7]
