There is a great free week show this Saturday at the Beauty Bar featuring DJ Car Stereo (Wars), an LCD Soundsystem cover band called All MY Friends, Moth Fight and The Laughing. The shindig is sponsored by PartyEnds.com and is sure to be amazing, and at the very least free. You should go.
Free week is as good of a tradition in Austin as wearing a scarf, heavy coat and toboggan when it cracks 65 degrees outside. It is a holy time. A time of freeness and reflection on the past year. A time of peace. A time to laugh, a time to weep. A time to dance, a time to mourn. A time of checking out your favorite bands for free and a time of checking out bands you have never heard of … for free. God bless free week.
