Calling all local music fans! For the next two weekends, Spider House Ballroom (2908 Fruth St) and The Good Music Club put together showcases of some of Austin’s favorite bands involved in Free Week. Their performances are filmed to serve as the bands’ live tapings, and no live taping is complete without fans dancing crazily and singing poorly along.
Saturday’s lineup includes Doors (8:30 p.m.), Yuma (9 p.m.), Löwin (10 p.m.), Shivery Shakes (11 p.m.), Chipper Jones (12 a.m.), and Young Tongue (1 a.m.). This and all of the showcases in this series are free for anyone 21 and up ($5 for minors).
Also happening on Saturday night, Cheer Up Charlie’s hosts another Free Week event titled ‘Champagne, Donuts & Dance.’ I personally cannot confirm that there will be any champagne or donuts, but it’s probably a safe assumption. In any case, Pet White Tiger, Total Unicorn, Corduroi, and IAYD will light up the stage. The show begins at 9 p.m.
