Meet Emily DiFranco! From shift supervisor to night manager — Emily is always helping out around our places any way she can. She is a basically our local Austin music hero in the coffee realm.
Emily has been working at Mozart’s for 3 years now. She helps lead our team, sling drinks behind the bar, make the bake case look beautiful, and trains employees.
We just walked up to the bar and asked her what she is drinking right this second. Her answer? An Iced Oat Milk Latte with Honey — YUM! Her go to savory item is always the classic garlic bagel, but when Emily is in the mood for something sweet, she picks up a Snickerdoodle cookie.
Emily is such an asset to the Mozart’s team, but that’s not all she is an asset to. Sometimes she hits the road for months at a time! Not just for fun, but because she has a key role in the up and coming Austin band, TC Superstar.
As choreographer and dancer, Emily spends most of her time outside of Mozart’s practicing with the band, preparing dance routines for their latest hits, and traveling on tour to perform all over the United States.
If you haven’t heard of TC Superstar, you should absolutely look them up. There is truly nothing like them!
From their Facebook bio, this is what they say about themselves. “TC Superstar is a collaborative performance group fronted by Connor McCampbell. McCampbell’s production style is rooted in modern bedroom pop, but alludes to 80’s synthwave and late 70’s dance music. TC Superstar’s live set features high-energy dance performances choreographed by LB Flett, Emily DiFranco, Francis Rodriguez, and Yuriko Roby — all graduates of the dance program at The University of Texas at Austin. Performing musicians include Julio Correa, Mitchell Webb, and Aaron Chavez.
The band formed in September of 2017 with the release of Masc, an album about notions of masculinity. TC Superstar quickly became a staple of the Austin scene, gigging frequently around the Red River cultural arts district.”
We are so proud of Emily and all she is doing! She will forever be part of the Mozart’s family. Oh, and we can’t forget about her adorable cat Leo.
