Holiday blues got you down? Never fear we’re only a few weeks away from the most wonderful time of the year. Of course, I’m talking about Free Week, that amazing time of the year when downtown clubs throw open their doors and invite the entire city to amble in without a dime. Stubb’s will be hosting seven nights between January 2 and January 11.

They kick things off on Thursday, Jan 2 with a Vagabond Collective showcase featuring Thieves, Pswingset, Phantom Lakes and Nominee. They close things out on Saturday, Jan. 11 with Marmalakes, Whalers and Same Veins. Standout shows in between include appearances from Hello Wheels, Seth Sherman and an Austin Vida curated night headlined by San. Antonio Conjunto punk outfit Piñata Protest.
