meliaSend melia a message :   the swimming pool was RANK. it used to be SRO outside sometimes, and there were many near misses, and i saw a girl lose her purse to its dark recesses one night, but i never saw anyone go in.
...and ferg, i know what you mean. there were so many good shows at both places back in the day, and i'm glad that at least the one in austin remains to kinda keep it going.

meliaSend melia a message :   i asked about eric the last time i was at emo's...back in early decemder. seems that he managed a nice restaurant in town for a while, but he's not doing that anymore. while i'm in town for sxsw, i'm gonna be seeing another friend from way back who worked at emo's (houston and austin) for a lot of years. he'll know what's up. eric gave me my first gigposter.
see...i can stay on topic when pressed. :P

meliaSend melia a message :   yeah. i knew that last part. i've seen them there several times. i never knew what they used to be called though, probably because of the whole "sucking" part.   2005-01-25 13:04:34
jasoncrossSend jasoncross a message :   that is a fact meliw...what's funnier is in years after naming themselves the Fuckemos, previously being Warthog 2000 - and sucking, they actually became hip and played Emo's quite often.

meliaSend melia a message :   until i left austin, i'd known eric since i was about 16 or thereabouts. that part was easy.
the rest was based on recollection of secondhand knowledge. fuckemos used to put on a fairly decent show, however, so that was nice.

whiteyhoustonSend whiteyhouston a message :   you get an A+ melia   2005-01-25 12:55:31
meliaSend melia a message :   eric hartman, one of the original owners (from back when there was only one emo's--the one in houston), was "emo." he was cool. he moved to austin when the opened the one up there.
the fuckemos called themselves that when they couldn't get gigs at emo's, if i'm not mistaken. it was a long time ago, but that's the version that i heard most often, back in the day.
i'm a regular fuckin' historian. :P

Brent OliverSend Brent Oliver a message :   Emo's is actually one of Austin's best r'n'r venues - named long before the term Emo (from that crap the call Emotional punk Rock). It's named after a person named Emo, if I do recall... check out:
Also - yeah, the poster is... uhhh... ok.
