Taking place Jan. 22-29 at Atomic Cowboy & The Bootleg, audiences can expect to see some of their favorite local bands and discover new acts they may not be familiar with during Free Week STL.
In the cold winter months, it can be hard to get off the couch, but Free Week STL is specifically designed to bring warm bodies into the venue during one of the slowest times of the year. The philosophy is simple: throw open the doors, drop the cover charge and invite folks to come experience St. Louis music.
“Do314 is excited to kick the year off with an entire week of live music experiences for St. Louis music fans. Catch local acts you love — or acts you haven’t had the opportunity to check out yet — in a great space, all free of charge,” says Do314 General Manager, Sarah Berkowitz.
The event has plans to grow into a vibrant multi venue celebration, a free local music binge with events all over town geared to all sorts of music enthusiasts.
JAMO Presents Founder Drew Jameson says, “One of the things I learned from six years in Vermont is that winter concerts are some of the best concerts. This will be a great excuse to shake that cabin fever.”
A few things to remember: Free Week STL bands are getting some pay but all of them would like you to spend some of the money you save at the door at the merch table, or drop it into the tip jar. Part of the reason artists play Free Week STL is exposure to new fans, so help expose any bands you see. Post photos and videos to your socials and tell all your friends. Ambassador for the excitement of local music is a great look, and let’s all start 2018 by wearing it well. M
