Un-Holy Mountain: Celebrating the last month of an Austin relic

I gotta say, I really love my job.

I arrived fashionably late to Holy Mountain on their rendition of Barbarella’s “Emo Night”: a nostalgic romp through time back to that one song that reminds you of that one girl/guy. My stuffy Uber driver shifted awkward glances towards my tattooed and pierced brethren as they meandered through the streets like a black, horn-rimmed glassed river capable of melancholy.
