FREE WEEK 2009: Day 6

Hope everyone is still enjoying all the Free Week shows, still got a few more days to go.


It's always a good time when we get to see Corto Maltese.  They are definitely one of the best bands in Austin.  The Austinist describes them as "having an adventurous sound worthy of the 'rogue with a heart of gold.' The indie rockers are inevitably compared to Arcade Fire, Ben Maddox’s vocals are spot-on Win Butler, but they forgo the bevy of eccentric instruments in favor of a grungier guitar base."

Playing right before Corto Maltese will be The Great Nostalgic, who we wrote about on our Day 1 preview of Free Week.  If you missed them last Friday, here's your chance.

Opening up the show will be The Authors.  They're a band I haven't seen live, but sound pretty intriguing on their myspace.
