TGIF! TGIF! TGIF!
You may have "danced on tabletops, taken too many shots, and got kicked out of the bar" last Friday night, but like the pop princess Katy Perry herself, tonight you're gonna "do it all again," expect you won't "max out your credit card" 'cause all you'll need is a Hamilton.
Here are this weekend's ten best music-related things to do under $10.
Deaf Poets Tour Kick Off. With Eagle Chief, Axe and the Oak, the Dead Good Young, Hunters of the Alps, the Grey 8s, Plastic Pinks, Suede Dudes, the AstroKats, and J.R Bear. Friday, November 22, 9 p.m., Churchill's Pub, 5501 NE 2nd Ave., Miami; 305-757-1807; churchillspub.com. Free. Jam to "the PBR-soaked sound" that is the Deaf Poets as Sean Wouters and Nicolas Espinosa rock the stage at Churchill's with Eagle Chief, the Dead Good Young, Suede Dudes, and other local indie rock faves before they hit up the road for their East Coast Winter Tour.

Arpetrio. With Off Orbit. Friday, November 22, 10 p.m., Tobacco Road, 626 South Miami Ave., Miami; 305-374-1198; tobacco-road.com. Free before 9 p.m. Combining elements of "jam, electronica, jazz-fusion, trip-hop, and psychedelic music," Arpetrio claims to bring in a whiff of "fresh air [to] the live electronic scene." And after listening to this "three piece powerhouse," you'll see that they really do "push the boundaries of electronica, jazz, and jam music."

The Tremends. With Artime. Friday, November 22, 10 p.m., Bardot, 3456 North Miami Ave., Miami; 305-576-7750; bardotmiami.com. The Tremends are nothing but a bunch of "raw, polished, evocative, melodic" musicians who are always on the Right Time to rock away.
S&T Bodega. With Pompeya, Bonnie Beats, and Nicolette Neves. Saturday, November 23, 11 p.m., The Garret at Grand Central, 697 North Miami Ave., Miami; 305-377-2277; grandcentralmiami.com. Tickets cost $10 plus fees via ticketfly.com. Ages 21 and up. If you know nothing of Pompeya, their "high, cooing vocals, funky basslines, crisp electric riffs, and chilled-out tropical disco vibes" are not the sound you would expect to hear from a band that hails all the way from Moscow. But if you caught Daniil Brod, Denis Agafonov, Sasha Lipskiy, and Nairi Simonian at Bardot or the FDR at the Delano back in June, you know these guys are all about "hot show[s], new friends, [and] lots of sun."
"Dream On, Dreamer" Hip-Hop Showcase. With Rid Jetson, Morgan, and 202LYC. Saturday, November 23, 7 p.m., Sweat Records, 5505 NE 2nd Ave., Miami; 786-693-9309; sweatrecordsmiami.com. Free. The "Sky's the Limit" so check out the hip-hop flow of Rid Jetson, Morgan, and 202LYC, and "Dream On, Dreamer[s]."
Shameless Burlesque and Analog Saturdays. Burlesque and music by DJs Omar G., Labenz, Wasabi, and Brad Strickland. Saturday, November 23, 10 p.m., The Vagabond, 30 NE 14th St., Miami; 305-379-0508; thevagabondmiami.com. There's no shame in having a thing for burlesque dancers, especially if it involves "troupe leader and stripteaser Holly Peno" and "her merry band of vaudevillian strip-teasers." Watch the bodacious babes of Shameless Burlesque tantalize the crowd with their sultry moves and top hats twice in one night at 12 a.m. and again 2 a.m. But ladies may wanna get there earlier -- the free champagne ends at the strike of midnight.
The Miami Ska Show. With Stop the Presses, Control This!, and UNRB. Saturday, November 23, 10 p.m., Tobacco Road, 626 South Miami Ave., Miami; 305-374-1198; tobacco-road.com. Free before 9 p.m. Rock steady to the skatastic vibes of Stop the Presses, Control This!, and UNRB.
Uma Galera. Saturday, November 23, 11 p.m., PAX, 337 SW 8th St., Miami; 305-640-5847; paxmiami.com. Tickets cost $5-$10 plus fees via ticketfly.com. Ages 21 and up. Uma Galera's all about peace and unity. So free yourself, grab "Mary Jane," and jam to some soulful reggae vibes.
Backyard Boogie. With DJs Lumin and Keen One. Sunday, November 24, 3-11 p.m., Wood Tavern, 2531 NW 2nd Ave., Miami; 305-748-2828; woodtavernmiami.com. Free. Grab an ice cold Shipyard Pumpkin Ale, relive the days of flat tops, Bell Biv DeVoe, and boom boxes, get down, and boogie at Wood.
The Smiths Night. With the Ordinary Boys and DJs Allan, Tommy Gunn, and others. Sunday, November 24, 8 p.m., The Vagabond, 30 NE 14th St., Miami; 305-379-0508; thevagabondmiami.com. Free. You'll have to wait 'till Tuesday to catch one-fifth of the Smiths in concert at Culture Room, but if you can't contain your indie '80s British pop rock obsession, watch the Ordinary Boys pay homage to "[The] Charming [Men]" of the Smiths.
