March 2014 FREE MUSIC List
By Sean Claes
Wristbands are for tourists. I know... SXSW sells out every year, it's larger than life, so we're not even getting into that discussion. You can have your long lines and badges worn like yokes. Locals know that there are PLENTY of free shows happening during March 2014.
The bonus with free shows is, there is plenty of swag, free food, free drinks, and lots and lots of free music. Many of the bands who have an "official" showcase also play one-off free shows and are part of the many fringe festivals that take advantage of the crowds created by the "big show." And all of these fringe festivals and day shows are free.
Below you will find some of the posters and listings for free shows happening in Austin during MARCH MUSIC MADNESS. If you have a free show happening in March in Austin, Texas, feel free to reach out to INsite (sean@insiteaustinDOTcom) with the poster and/or details. we'll add it to this listing.
