Ten years ago, the Mohawk set up shop in a seemingly cursed space that hosted a revolving door of failed clubs through the late nineties and early aughts. In the years since, it has grown into one of the finest live music venues in the country, a cornerstone of the vibrant Red River Cultural District.

Today the club announced eight nights of shows (co-presented by Sound on Sound Fest) featuring a variety of national heavyweights and local faves including Wu-Tang’s GZA, local psych-rock pioneer Roky Erickson, Emo rockers the Get Up Kids and comedians Neil Hamburger and Kyle Kinane.

“The customers, staff, and bands built this place so we just wanted to do something to say thanks,” owner James Moody said on Wednesday. “We are proud of this moment — if you know anything about Red River, this is a well earned milestone.”

The shows take place from September 9-17. Tickets and more information available at mohawkaustin.com.
