Five Things to Do This Weekend Under $5
5. Raggy Monster at Feast of the Sea
11 a.m., Saturday, September 13, at Meyer Amphitheater, South Flagler Dr., West Palm Beach. No cover. Visit Facebook.
What do fish and music have in common? A lot more than you think (and no, we're not just talking about the shared heteronym, bass). To consume either brings most people great joy. And both will be featured on a platter at Feast of the Sea. Taking place at West Palm's Meyer Amphitheater, you can chow on a creature harvested from the Atlantic and enjoy some impressive local acts. There's reggae band Spred The Dub, alt funk folks the People Upstairs, bluegrass inspired Killbillies, and the eclectic Raggy Monster.
And in more good news, unlike the South Beach Wine & Food Festival, this event is free.
4. City-Wide Market
8:30 a.m., Saturday, September 13, at Coral Springs Gymnasium, 2501 Coral Springs Dr., Coral Springs. No cover. Visit Facebook.
Bright and early this Saturday, you can hit up a flea market full of secondhand items, antiques, jewelry, green market goods, and more at City-Wide Market. Local dog and cat rescue org, Grateful Paws, will also be accepting donations and adopting out little furry animals. Window shop, or even spend a little on cool vintage items you can't find elsewhere. Your grandma would be proud.
3. Shotgun Betty, the Prescription, and Mylo Ranger at Poorhouse
10 p.m., Friday, Septemebr 12, at PoorHouse, 110 SW 3rd Ave., Fort Lauderdale. No cover. Visit Facebook.
It's a weird mix of music at the delightfully dingy Poorhouse but hey, we like it weird. Shotgun Betty will provide rootsy sounds while Mylo Ranger has the Southern sound to soothe your inner Alabaman. Too upbeat for ya? There's also Jensen Beach's the Prescription, which'll bring plenty of heavy sounds to melt your face. You can hunker down at Poorhouse and check out all three bands instead of bar-hopping all over town to hear each of them. Take advantage of this worthy one stop shop.
2. Lolipop Records USA Adventure Tour
9 p.m., Saturday, September 13, at Respectable Street, 518 Clematis St., West Palm Beach. $10 for 18 to 21 and $5 cover for 21 and older. Visit Facebook. And 2 p.m., Sunday, September 14, at Radio-Active Records, 845 N. Federal Hwy., Fort Lauderdale. This show is free. Visit Facebook.
This Saturday and Sunday mark two of the three South Florida stops on the first ever Lolipop Records adventure tour. The label is only four years old, but has garnered a huge following and created a solid scene in its native Los Angeles. Now touring the U.S., you can uncover bands like Froth, Mr. Elevator & the Brain Hotel, Corners, and Wyatt Blair for yourself in your own backyard.
1. Bizarre Bazaar and Craft Faire at Makers Square
7 p.m., Saturday, September 13, at Makers Square, 1142 NE 6 Ave., Fort Lauderdale. No cover. Visit Facebook.
