Austin Free Week Continues Through Through 12th

What started as a tradition of Red River clubs during the normally slow period after the New Year has become almost a booming mini-festival showcasing local acts for almost a dozen days at clubs from Mohawk, Hotel Vegas, and many more.

“It really is a great way to go out and see many different bands and shows without having to worry about cost. It’s almost like it’s own mini-festival,” said fan Matt Clifton.

“I saw many great bands during the week and there’s many more to catch on the horizon coming up in a big way. Next time I’ll definitely pay to see them.”

Free week throughout Austin runs for 8 more days through January 12th. For a full list of local shows check out
