There's nothing like waking up and realizing you don't have to go into the office today because it's Memorial Day!
That means that the rest of the four-day work week is gonna fly by as quickly as the arrival of summer, especially when you've got all these great shows to check out.
Here are the five best concerts going down this week from pop rockers Neon Trees to indie rock legend Morrissey to bachata heartthrob Romeo Santos.

Neon Trees. Thursday, May 29, 7:30 p.m. Revolution Live, 100 SW 3rd Ave., Fort Lauderdale; 954-449-1025; jointherevolution.net. Tickets cost $20 plus fees via ticketmaster.com. Leaving the friend zone isn't an easy task. But the truth is, "we are young, hot-blooded people who don't wanna die alone." So the next time you catch yourself eying your hot BFF, take the advice of Neon Trees' main man Tyler Glenn and "Sleep With a Friend."
Morrissey. With Kristeen Young, Saturday, May 30, Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts, 1300 Biscayne Blvd., Miami; 305-949-6722; arshtcenter.org. Tickets are sold out via arshtcenter.org. It's been seven years since the Pope of Mope played South Florida, so if you're a hardcore Moz fan, chances are you'll find yourself sitting in the Arsht Center and listening to the ever-charming Morrissey.
Romeo Santos. Saturday, May 31, 8:30 p.m. American Airlines Arena, 601 Biscayne Blvd., Miami; 786-777-1000; aaarena.com. Tickets cost $18 to $176 plus fees via ticketmaster.com. Romeo Santos definitely has a way with las mujeres. Maybe it's those piercing dark eyes or that sweet, tender voice of his. Whatever it is, he's one of the only dudes out there who can get a lady to "bailar bachata y luego terminar en la cama."
Gloria Trevi. Saturday, May 31, 8 p.m. The Fillmore Miami Beach, 1700 Washington Ave., Miami Beach; 305-673-7300; fillmoremb.com. Tickets cost $43.50 to $83.50 plus fees via livenation.com.
