You work hard and you know it!

That's why the entire nation celebrates its hard-working citizens by dedicating an entire day in September to not working.

But while much of America will celebrate Labor Day by sitting on the couch and watching a Lifetime movie marathon, the 305 will be partying it up with Bruno Mars, Robin Thicke, Pharrell, and lots of other famous faces.

Check out the five best concerts going down this Labor Day weekend.

Bruno Mars' Moonshine Tour. With Fritz and the Tantrums. Friday, August 30, 8 p.m., American Airlines Arena, 601 Biscayne Blvd., Miami; 786-777-1000; aaarena.com. Tickets cost $37 to $122 plus fees via ticketmaster.com. Bruno Mars is a ladies man. Sure, he "should've bought you flowers and held your hand," but then he does things like call you "Treasure" and lament that "you make [him] feel like [he's] been locked out of heaven." Makes it hard for a girl to resist.

GTA. With Mike Deuce and Hogan. Friday, August 30, 10 p.m., Grand Central, 697 N. Miami Ave., Miami; 305-377-2277; grandcentralmiami.com. Tickets cost $15 plus fees via ticketfly.com. Don't forget to do your pre-Labor Day twerkout. Because the GTA guys are gonna make that "Booty Bounce" with their "in-your-face, dirty, sexy, and full-of-hype" bangers.

Dillon Francis. With Noisia and Heroes x Villains.. Friday, August 30, 8 p.m., Revolution Live, 100 SW Third Ave., Fort Lauderdale; 954-449-1025; jointherevolution.net. Tickets cost $22 plus fees via ticketmaster.com. It's a holiday! And that means Dillon Francis will be setting the stage on fire at Revolution with his "Bootleg Fireworks"! Bring a ladder and a trampoline!

Un_Mute's Fourth Anniversary Party. With Jay Haze, Fuckpony, and Will Renuart. Saturday, August 31, 11 p.m., Electric Pickle, 2826 N. Miami Ave., Miami; 305-456-5613; electricpicklemiami.com. Tickets cost $15 to $20 plus fees via residentadvisor.com. Hey, you "true believers in love," get lost in the self-described "sexy, sophisticated sound" of Fuckpony. Kinda like a neigh mixed with a moan.

Robin Thicke and Pharrell. As part of the BleauLive concert series. Sunday, September 1, Fontainebleau Miami Beach, 4441 Collins Ave., Miami Beach; 305-538-2000; fontainebleau.com. Packages start at $369. It's Labor Day eve! So stay "up all night," "get blasted," "get nasty," and "get lucky" with Robin Thicke and Pharrell. Don't stop till you see "Blurred Lines."
