Photo Recap: Molotov at Emo’s East

Photo by Mari Hernandez.

Mexico City Alt-rock icons Molotov made a rare Austin appearance at the new Emo’s East on Riverside Drive Thursday night. This was the first time Emo’s East played host to a Latin Alternative touring act. With an epic new sound system and an odd House of Blues type of vibe typically not associated with the name “Emo’s,” Molotov’s live show rocked the mostly Mexican crowd so hard that it felt almost as if everyone was still on Red River. It just goes to show that Emo’s is still Emo’s despite the address change.

Austin Vida photographer Mari Hernandez was on hand Thursday night to capture their set in photos.  Austin Latin fusion band Este Vato opened the show. Click on the thumbnails to enlarge the photos.
