Ten Best Music-Related Things to Do This Weekend Under $10
Phew, eight more hours and it's over. The never-ending workweek is finally coming to a close.
No more headaches brought on by that disgusting stench creeping from the office fridge. No more copy machine jams, TPS reports, or creepy corporate dudes evaluating your performance.
After you punch out, the next 65-or-so hours are totally free. It's the weekend, and that means you're ready to ball. Well, ball on a budget.
Your funds are incredibly limited. You're overworked and underpaid. But that doesn't mean you can't have fun. Check out our ten best music-related things to do under $10 this weekend.
