Ten Best Music-Related Things to Do This Weekend Under $10
We did it, y'all. We made it through the work week.
We'll finally have a chance to disconnect from the workplace tonight at Happy Hour or catch a grimy metal show on Saturday night in Little Haiti. Whatever the case, we're free. And not to mention, it's pay day, and we've got a fat check burning a hole in our checking account.
But how can we stretch that cash to last three days? Easy. Just do things under $10.
Beats After Sunset. Friday, October 7, 8 p.m., Bass Museum of Art, 2100 Collins Ave., Miami Beach. Free for members, $8 for non-members. How classy is this: beats after sunset, complimentary drinks and fine contemporary art? Sold.
That 70s Show. Friday, October 7, 6 p.m., Tobacco Road, 626 S. Miami Ave., Miami. $5. Celebrate DJ Oski's birthday with 12 bands over three stages, and the $100 Best Dressed 70s Contest. Oh yeah, and beers are only 99 cents for 99 minutes starting at 6 p.m.
Brownbird Rudy Relic. Friday, October 7, 9 p.m., Churchill's Pub, 5501 NE Second Ave., Miami. $5. Brownbird's been described as a "blues musical anomaly," a dude who blends "pre-war blues, Mexican romantic ballads, '90s R&B and '50s Doo Wop." We call it gnarly.
Big Brooklyn Red and the Magic City 3. Friday, October 7, 9 p.m., Upstairs at the Van Dyke, 846 Lincoln Rd., Miami Beach. $7. First time we heard Big Brooklyn, we thought, Yo, is this dude for real? The answer is yes, and the man love vagina. And that's not a dirty word.
Psychic Mirrors. Friday, October 7 at 9:00 p.m. 30 NE 14 St, Miami. Free before 11. Miami-based psychic mirrors have an uncanny ability to make us want dance our ass off. Their futuristic soul/funk/pop brand of all around feel good music will be center stage at Vagabond tonight.
Dr. Sketchy's Anti-Art School. Saturday, October 8, 7 p.m., Green Room Nightclub, 100 SW Third Ave, Fort Lauderdale. $10 via drsketchysofla.com. Burlesque? Check. Indie rock? Check. Fine Art? Er, sure.
Coral Gables Oktoberfest. Saturday October 8, 11 a.m., Fritz and Franz Bierhaus, 60 Merrick Way, Coral Gables. The biggest Oktoberfest street party in Miami is underway, and that means drinking copious amounts of Bavarian beer, listening to some live polka, and munching on some German eats. We love October.
Brendan O'Hara. Saturday, October 8, 11 p.m., Cabaret Stage at Tobacco Road, 626 S. Miami Ave, Miami. $5. Acoustic crooner Brendan O'Hara performs at Miami's oldest bar.
Bobby Stringer. Saturday, October 8, 9 p.m., Upstairs at the Van Dyke, 846 Lincoln Rd., Miami Beach. $7. You want to seal the deal on your date? Let Bobby Stringer lube him or her up with his sultry soul and R&B covers.
The Vibrators. Saturday, October 8, 9 p.m., Churchill's Pub, 5501 NE Second Ave, Miami. $10. Punk pioneers The Vibrators rip through Churchill's this weekend, and it'll only set you back a dime piece. But if your party junkie ass still isn't satisfied ...
