Love makes you do crazy things, like go buck wild on dark chocolate and red roses for your lover on Valentine's Day, or buy mojitos for Ms. Little Black Dress sitting at the bar in hopes of finding love for the night.
No matter how you spend the holiday, chances are you'll wake up broke. But since we've got nothing but love for you, here are the ten best music-related things to do under $10 this weekend.

Deadmau5. Saturday, February 15, 10 p.m., Ice Palace Film Studios, 1400 N. Miami Ave., Miami; 1400 North Miami Ave., Miami; 305-672-5117; big-time.com. Tickets are sold out. It's hard to take a man who wears mouse ears and goes on social media rants seriously ... Not for Deadmau5. That's why Space offered the DJ a free show when he vowed to never play at a Miami club again last month, and that's why the Mau5 is coming back to the 305 for a show a la gratis.
