Don't you just hate it when you wake up thinking it's Friday only to realize it's actually Monday?
Yeah, we've all been there, and from experience we can say it really sucks. But one thing that doesn't suck are all of the good shows going down this week, from shirtless ATL rapper Waka Flocka Flame at Grand Central to L.A. rockers Weezer at the Hard Rock.
Here are the five best concerts to check out in SoFla.
