The troubles on Red River continue. The Austin Chronicle confirms that Holy Mountain is closing on October 1st.
Casualties of the pricing boom, owners were confronted with a 45% rent increase, putting their monthly bill at $8,000 plus "triple net" fees - taxes, insurance, and maintenance - totaling in the thousands. It's an unmanageable figure for the club to sustain, confirms co-owner James Taylor.More details at the Chronicle.
A small room with big ambitions, Holy Mountain opened on New Year's Eve 2012 in the revamped shell of erstwhile hipster chain Beauty Bar.
Sorry to see you go, Holy Mountain. We hope all the other clubs on Red River and Red 7 make it out of all of this alive.
Meanwhile check out their schedule of final shows, and especially keep an eye out for some big ones. As the Chronicle says:
Taylor's filling Holy Mountain's September calendar with old favorites and bucket-list acquisitions. They'll host a weekly "Super Secret Special Guest Series" on Mondays, bringing in mega-artists for underplays announced on the day of the show. Beyond marquee bookings such as Lætitia Sadier of Stereolab (9/17), familial locals will soundtrack Armageddon: Hard Proof, Not in the Face, Feral Future, East Cameron Folkcore, Harvest Thieves, Ben Ballinger, and Mike & the Moonpies, who'll be the last band to play Holy Mountain.And speaking of East Cameron Folkcore at Holy Mountain, we caught them there during Free Week 2014 and have an uposted set of pictures which is now posted in this post.

Austin's East Cameron Folkcore make rollicking orchestral folk rock, and they've got a bit of punk edge too, which is fitting since Gorilla Biscuits drummer Luke Abbey recently joined as a member. Earlier this week, they put out their new album, Kingdom of Fear, on Nine Mile Records, and they're currently in the process of making a video trilogy for its tracks "Kingdom of Fear," "The Joke" and "969." We've got the premiere of part 2 ("The Joke"), which you can watch below.
The band wrapped up a four-night stand at Austin's Salvage Vanguard Theater last week to celebrate the release of the LP, and they have two more hometown shows coming up. They play the 65th annual Art City Austin happening this month (4/25-26), and then they have a club show at Holy Mountain on May 16.
