Ohio may be for lovers, but Austin is for live music. Don’t miss your chance to see some of the biggest names in emo music! This Friday, join 101X, and Domain North Side for a FREE show featuring the iconic Hawthorne Heights, and Armor for Sleep. The bands are welcomed by Nick, from 101X’s The Morning X Show.
