there is no more live music. I don't know nor understand why the live music is gone? This "was" the best and only place to see a metal show. I am beyond saddned that the venue is gone. Allthough, if you live neer by, it is the perfect local hole in the wall! A bunch of metal heads, bikeres and gutter punks just hangin out drinking and playing pool. The perfect austin bar! more

if you want to keep it metal austin, this is the place to do it. great shows, and a manager that cares about the local music scene (i'm giving you the finger here Stemboat) punk fest 3 on saturday was pristine in it's raunchy, noisy, torn flag waving glory. The Misguided Lemming, Blacklung Patriots and Head First rocked the hell out of that stage and then saved the tasty leftovers for the rest of the bands. Pros: good parking, girl bartender, RUBBERHED!!!! Cons: cous cous, red beans and rice, chumba wumba more

I have friends in bands who play at the Backroom and say the only good thing about the place is the soundguy. The staff are very rude, and bend over backwards to make sure that you have an unpleasant experience. I went to the bar to get a glass of water and was informed that I could now only buy bottled water for a dollar! Needless to say, I didn't have any money. At Mortician last year a friend and I showed up to the show ON TIME and waited outside for 2 hours (two girls outside in the dark right off Riverside and I-35) because the club kept pushing back the opening time. Not cleaning the bathrooms must be policy at this establishment. The only reason why they are still open is they are the best venue in Austin for underground metal. That says a lot for the scene. Pros: Good Parking, Good Size Cons: Rude Staff, Dirty Before Show, Dumb Headliner Policy more
