Ten Best Music-Related Things to Do in Miami this Weekend Under $10
President Obama's in Florida today, campaigning 'round the Sunshine State and asking for money to help fund his re-election run.
As y'all know, however, times are rough. And that remaining $10 from last week's paycheck can either go toward helping POTUS secure four more years in the White House or paying off your bar tab.
It's your choice. But just in case you're planning to invest in the booze fund, here are Crossfade's ten best music-related things to do in Miami under $10 this weekend.
