The Emerson Theater is the granddaddy of Indy’s all-ages scene. National and regional acts ranging from the All-American Rejects and Coheed and Cambria, to Kill Hannah and Mindless Self Indulgence have toured through this venue in recent years. With a holding capacity of 400 people, the former neighborhood art theater had it seats removed for an in-your-face glimpse of live music. Recently, they installed a new sound system, and have been hosting an array of metalcore and pop punk shows. The crowd is largely and predictably determined by the names on the marquee.
