Upcoming Events: May 2021

It’s May, and more and more businesses are reopening. Valhalla is back with live music, but not to be confused with a new bar also called Valhalla on the west side. As of today, Mohawk and Elysium are still closed, but they are actively working on reopening. Barracuda closed last year but you might be able to own a piece of the club. They are selling off everything from furniture to fixtures. Check out their Instagram for details. Last month a new goth night popped up at Crow Bar on South Congress. They kept it pretty hush-hush and promoted through some person’s Instagram and not through any of the bar’s official socials. We’ll be keeping an eye out to see if they will be hosting more goth events and let you know what’s up. Austin has a new oddities shop! The Austin Oddities Parlour by Bossities opened recently. Check out their listing in the Shopping category. And, coming soon to the East Side on 6th Street is City Alchemist, an occult book and candle shop. They are slowly making progress on the new space. We’ll let you know when they open.
