It’s January and that means Free Week is happening! A multi-genre event, Free Week takes place the first weekend of the month at virtually all the bars and clubs along Red River Street. There are tons of free shows and we highlighted the ones that are most interesting to us below. One show we are very excited for is the return of Austin punk legends, the Krum Bums!
Here’s a question for you: What do you think of multi-genre shows at clubs? For example, you go to a show and the lineup is an electronic band, a country band, and a metal band. If you’re like us you’re annoyed that you paid 10 bucks only to leave after one band. This is happening more often at several venues here in Austin. We did not list quite a few shows because of this.
Here’s some events we are looking forward to in January:
- Free Week: In A Darkened Room, Sin and Seraphim, Vestite at Elysium – Jan 5
- Stuck on 45, Inflatable Baptists, Cruel Summer TX, Amber Eye at Kick Butt Coffee – Jan 6
- Free Week: Sailor Poon, Being Dead, Orvy, Transy Warhol at Chess Club – Jan 7
- Koffin Kats at Kick BUtt Coffee – Jan 14
- Krum Bums w/ Peace Decay, Liberty & Justice and Nerve – Jan 19
There’s more great things happening, of course. As always we’ll be updating the calendar weekly.
