"Come at us, bro!"
"Weekends were made for R&R," said no one ever.
Truth is, weekends were made for partying, boozing, dancing, and waking up the next morning with a pineapple on your night stand, asking yourself, "What the hell happened last night?"
You'll be scratching your head all day trying to figure out the story of the mystery pineapple, but at least you'll have enough money left in your wallet to retrace your steps and wake up the next morning with another random object in your bedroom.
Here are the ten best music-related things to do under $10 in the 305 this weekend.
