Free Week underway; T-Bird & the Breaks revealed as secret band Saturday
T-Bird & the Breaks @ Fun Fun Fun Fest (more by Tim Griffin)
"Live music pioneer Graham Williams (founder of Fun Fun Fun Fest) started Free Week in 2003 when he was still booking shows for Emo's. According to Williams, who now operates Transmission Events, Free Week started "as a way to get people to come out during the slow time of the year when nobody was touring, as well as just bring something fun to do when everyone was still off work and the kids out of school for the end of the holidays.""

Free Week continues in Austin through 1/8. Have you seen any good free shows yet?
Previously listed as "special guest" due to their New Year's Eve show at Stubb's, it has been revealed that T-Bird & the Breaks headline the free Mohawk Outdoor show on Saturday (1/7). OBN IIIs, who just played Emo's, headline the inside room that same night and play Beerland one night earlier.
Looking for free beer too? Frock on Vintage has you covered. Head down there by 6pm each night for early sets of music and complimentary Corona.
