Ume at Fun Fun Fun Fest 2012 (more by Glen Brown)

It’s that time of year again. In Austin, the first week (well a little more than a week actually) of January is free week, which is a week of mostly local bands playing free shows in local venues. This year, the shows will happen at Beerland, Red 7, The Mohawk, Beauty Ballroom, Stubb’s, The Scoot Inn, Holy Mountain, Frank, Swan Dive, Antone’s, Flamingo Cantina, Emo’s, Lamberts, The Parish, and more.

This year’s shows include the first two nights of Shakey Graves’ weekly residency at Parish (1/2 & 1/9, though the following three nights are also free), Parquet Courts at Beerland tonight (1/2) (which is part of their tour) with Sweet Talk and others, Dikes of Holland, The Be Helds, Bad Banana, and Church Shoes at Hotel Vegas tonight, Ume, My Jerusalem and more at Emo’s on 1/4, Sleep Over, Orthy, Feathers, and more at Holy Mountain on 1/4, Leftover Crack at Beauty Ballroom on 1/5, Riverboat Gamblers at Mohawk on 1/11, Jonathan Toubin at Red 7 on 1/11, and many more. Browse Do512 for more.
