Choices for weekend shows are looking pretty slim, but one bright spot on the map is a Brothers & Sisters show at Mohawk on Saturday.

So the now famous free week is finally upon us and you want to know what’s going on. For you inquiring minds, we decided to give you a night by night guide on what venues you should head out to. Obviously more than one show is going on each night, but we’re picking the best show on each night. Follow the jump for our free week guide.
So tomorrow is the big day. You don’t think that $100 NYE party sounds worth it. Downtown scares you. Maybe you don’t even really care about a midnight makeout session and just want to party. Here are 3 parties that combine good music, cheap covers, and swanky locals. Have a happy new year and we’ll catch up with you on Friday with our free week guide.
Beauty Bar – Your favorite old hipster kid hangout features DJ Mel inside along with The Strange Boys, Dans La Lune, The Ugly Beats, The Boxing Lesson, and Petals outside. Not sure on a cover charge, but drink prices should be the same as always. Beauty Bar tends to get overly crowded on nights like these so don’t say we didn’t warn you.
Spider House – Not usually known as a live music venue, Spider House brings you music from The Strange Attractors, Wine & Revolution, and a few other local acts. Cover is only $10 with champagne all night for the same price.
These are only a few options and I’m sure you’ve got some crazy party going on and your mom’s house. Drop us a line if you’ve got a hot tip.

Not too long ago, we gave you a new demo by The Applessed Cast entitled “Road West”. Today we found another new song by the band over on Stereogum going by the name of “Raise the Sails”. Both of these songs are set to appear on the band’s latest album Sagarmatha which is due out on 2/17 via The Militia Group. The Lawrence boys are also embarking on their first tour in quite some time with a planned stop at Austin’s own Mohawk. Check the dates on their myspace page. ATH couldn’t be happier that you guys didn’t call it quits.
