Austin Events: FREE Week!!

January 5, 2010

Ah, 2010!  Can you feel it yet?  The smell of … teens?  The …delight…of a new decade?  Well, all I know is that I had a great freakin’ New Year’s vacation, today I’m sippin’ coffee after noon, and it’s still FREE week in Austin!  Several venues downtown are hosting free music all week long showcasing local talent.  If you know how much I like FREE things, then you’ll know how excited I am to bring you this list of events!  If you’re not tapped out of cash and are looking to avoid the crowds, I’ll be posting non-FREE events tomorrow.

I’m going to make more of a list for this since there are so many shows to see.

Tuesday, January 5th

El Paso Heist, Commissure, Orchestra of Antlers and Milk Thistle

Tonight at Red7.  If you like progressive experimental rock tunes, this might be the show for you.  Doors open at 9 pm.
