¡Ay, ay ay!

Rise and shine for Cinco de Mayo! Even if you're not Mexican, tonight you're gonna rock your sombrero, pound shots of tequila, and pretend you are.

Sure, you'll wake up hungover, but at least you'll have sweet music from indie rockers the Head and the Heart, rock 'n' roll from Of Montreal, and positive vibes from Matisyahu to help you make it through the rest of the work week.

Just check out the five best concerts going down this week.
