Red River is the perfect street to wander down when you're waiting for something to catch your ear and draw you in. This official entertainment and cultural district is vital to the heart of the Live Music Capital of the World and in January, Red River will put on a show like no other. From January 1 - 8, venues throughout the city host free live music shows to celebrate the artists, venues and thriving culture of creativity in Austin. Here are the can't miss venues on Red River during Free Week (and all year long):
Mohawk: This corner bar plays host to big names as well as local up-and-comers. Stop by during Free Week for craft beer and tunes from Carson McHone, Whiskey Shivers, Keeper, Otis the Destroyer and tons more.
Empire Control Room & Garage: This multi-stage venue is perfect for cool January nights, and when it gets hot inside, head to the patio overlooking Waller Creek. Expect Free Week showcases by hot local artists such as Ruby & the Reckless, Calliope Musicals, Black Books and more.
