So what if it's Friday the 13th... It's still Friday!
That means you're free to do what you wanna do, like jam to quality music with like-minded party people and partake in drunken shenanigans without going broke.
Maybe today (and the next two days) won't be wickedly cursed after all.
Check out the ten best music-related things to do in Miami under $10 this weekend.
