Free Week, or the first two weeks of January in Austin, is the best time to enjoy what the “Live Music Capital” has to offer. Almost every live music venue in the city offers free shows to fans that feature the city’s local talent. What started out at Emo’s in the early part of the decade now flourishes in the Red River cultural music district (to say the least) and stretches to East 6th and for the first time this year, Spider House Ballroom by U.T. on Fruth Street.
It was at Spider House Ballroom that we at Red River Noise made our home venue. We programmed a week and half of showcases, one that included the second installment of our “Super Soul Party” that we premiered in August. The showcase featured KP and the Boom Boom, The Shears, ROXY ROCA and the brightest new star in Austin, Latasha Lee and The BlackTies. It was a blast for all to say the least. Look for the third installment very soon.
