Antone’s has new owners. The Austin blues venue that was a launching pad for Stevie Ray Vaughan left downtown for East Riverside Drive earlier this year.
“Antone’s has been such an integral part of Austin’s music history and we’re just happy to be carrying the torch to the next level,” said Tayloe Emery, one of the investors.
He says the goal is to move Antone’s back into downtown Austin and the hope is to have that done in time for South by Southwest in March.
Founder Clifford Antone’s sister Susan Antone will stay on as part of the club's operations.
