Austin celebrates free music events for a week
Last week, the city of Austin celebrated Free Week where local bands played in venues down Red River Street and no covers were charged to enter.
The free lineups kept venues on Red River packed all of last week. Officials involved in the event have stated that this year was the biggest that the event has been. Many venues that have never participated in Free Week participated this year.
Venues including, Antone’s, Mohawk, Frank, Hotel Vegas and Skinny Ballroom all hosted free shows for Austin residents to enjoy. Bands that took advantage of the exposure include, Austin Crooks and A Giant Dog.
