Dorky fan girl glee, plus a question

Because no one that I work with really appreciates how excited I am (nor do they even know who I am talking about for that matter!), I have to share with someone. Just found out recently that Satyricon is going to be playing the venue that I work at and I couldn't be more stoked! I am so going to get to work early and designate myself to set up the greenroom and/or bring their rider items on the bus in hopes that I get a chance to chat with them. Hopefully I won't make an ass of myself, I've worked at venues for years and usually don't bat an eye at meeting anyone at this point, but every once in a while the dorky fan girl rears her ugly head!

Aaaaand my question is: do any of you ladies live in the Austin area, and if so, what is the metal scene like there? It seems like most bands pass up Austin to play Houston from what I've seen on pollstar. I'm moving there in March, and all my friends who live there are more into the goth or indie scene so they don't really have any info for me. Thanks!
