Free Week Day 2, and it’s Friday night; let’s dive right into some show recommendations. Down in the Red River Cultural District, you can enjoy a proper rock show with Otis the Destroyer, Go Fever, Lola Tried at Cheer Up Charlie’s, and others, while Empire Control Room hosts another night jam-packed with hip-hop artists tonight featuring The TEETA, Deezie Brown, J Soulja, and Cece Hustle just to name a few. Both stages at Mohawk embrace a bona fide Tolkien Tribute night with Being Dead, Magic Rockers of Texas, Thor & Friends, and, of course, Nolan Potter’s Nightmare Band. Stepping away from Red River and East of 35, Hotel Vegas brings the Riot Grrl energy with Mean Jolene, Nevil, Leather Girls, and Pinky Ring and Wet Dip. Get a taste of all of these artists and everyone else playing Free Week in our Spotify playlist below.
