Ten Best Music-Related Things to Do This Weekend Under $10
It's Friday. That means your employer direct-deposited a fat stack in your bank account or payroll tossed a money envelope in your mailbox. But before you even clock out, you've spent half your check on bullshit like car payments, credit card debt, student loans, rent, and utilities.
Nonetheless, you want to get loose this weekend. Your dwindling checking account, however, is running dry. The shitty economy has you on a very tight leash.
Ah, if only you had a few options under $10. Well, broke baller, there are. And we've got them listed for you. Check out Crossfade's picks for the best things to do this weekend under $10.
Friday, September 16
Big Night in Little Haiti
Kick it with Shleu Shleu at the Little Haiti Cultural Center for a massive Haitian dance party. They're playing a free, two-hour set in Little Haiti. Yeah, free.
Get your rude boy on at Churchill's with a sick nine-band lineup, part of the bar's 17th annual Miami Rock Festival. Show starts at 8 p.m.
Blend soul, rock and roll, and noise, and you get KayakMan. The quintet's performing their unique sound at the Van Dyke on Friday.
Bossa Nova, baby. Rose Max and her husband, Ramatis Moraes, bring their samba-bossa-jazz hybrid to Boteco tonight. And it's free.

Jacuzzi Boys Going Away Party
The Jacuzzi Boys are leaving Miami. No, not for good. Just until Thanksgiving. They're hitting the road for a full-blown US/Canada tour. But before they do, they want to get wild with y'all one last time. Therefore, they'll be guest DJing at Lester's on Saturday.
PL0T with Barem and Bruno Pronsato
Argentine electro artist Barem continues to celebrate the release of his debut album, which dropped in June, and returns to the Electric Pickle for a night of beats and bangers. The show costs $10 before midnight.
The live music at the Van Dyke is so incredibly diverse. And a day after hosting a soul ensemble, the Lincoln Road joint's throwing a salsa and merengue party with Tony Succar and his band.
Karaoke at Dewey's Tavern
Every Saturday, several locals and a few wasted tourists tackle Karaoke classics at Dewey's for a night of drunken sing-alongs. Watching an old hag butcher "Time After Time" never gets old.
The Funk: School Drive for Haiti
1310 Gallery Fort Lauderdale
You don't have a lot of money. But imagine the good Karma you'd get after donating your last $10 to needy children in Haiti. Plus, you'll get to watch two "funky violin players" shred while checking out some dope art.
Sunday, September 18
Afron Sunday Concert Series
Face it, the Dolpins will probably lose on Sunday, and your fantasy team's garbage. Drink away the pain at Churchill's and rage with South Florida alt-metal band 11 Lives.
