5. Impulse Art at Hollywood Artwalk
8 p.m. Saturday, November 15, at Artcenter 2020, 2020 Harrison St., Hollywood. No cover. Visit Facebook.
Artist Daniel Pontet will be painting live at Hollywood's art walk to a drumming circle guided by Jeff Lee, Evan Kline, Adrian Jones and featuring Diego Fuica. The powwow is sponsored by Resurrection Drums and organized by Hollywood CRA. And if you haven't heard before, Pontet paints on the ground... with his feet.
At least his hands will be clean for a high five! Art in Hollywood sounds like more fun than art anywhere else right about now.
4. Art Fest 2014 & Affordable Art Sale at BC North Campus
6 p.m. Friday and Saturday, November 14 to 15, at Omni Auditorium, Broward College North Campus, 1000 Coconut Creek Blvd., Coconut Creek. No cover. Visit Facebook.
Missed the first and second day of Broward College's art fest? Don't sweat it! The culturally heavy event extends to through Saturday. Not to mention, it appears that live music is only available on these days, so technically you lucked out.
Friday's tunes schedule includes DJ Mark Cameron, who will be playing old school funk, R&B, and reggae. Saturday's mix includes some Americana, indie, acoustic punk, psych and experimental rock with musicians Madeira, Pocket of Lollipops, Nick Tropolis, EEL, and Milkspot.
You can also check out the oil painting workshop, live art, and over 50 booths of visual arts and crafts merch. There will also be food trucks for you to get your nom on.
3. Rough Shots at Chit Chats Bar
9 p.m. Saturday, November 15, at Chit Chats Bar, 651 N. Federal Hwy., Pompano Beach. No cover. Visit Facebook.
If you missed Cole Swindell last night at Round Up, don't sweat it. You can still get your taste of country at Chit Chats Bar this Saturday with Broward foursome Rough Shots. The four piece band offers a delightful mix of modern and classic rock, blues, and country.
2. Public Sounds Collective at Dada
10 p.m., Friday, November 14, at Dada, 52 N. Swinton Ave., Delray Beach. No cover. Visit Facebook.
Want some chill time to your Friday night? Swing by Delray's Dada, one of South Florida's coolest restaurants and former-house turned sometimes music venues. Public Sounds Collective will perform in the former living room with its eccentric blend of funk jazz and soul. Adding in a big glass of wine and a hot date is not necessary, but probably not a bad idea.
1. Valentine's Day in November: A Fund Raiser for Melanie Valentine
8 p.m., Friday, November 14, at Respectable Street, 518 Clematis St., West Palm Beach. $10 cover. Visit Facebook.
This is the most expensive item on the list, but don't fret about the cover charge. The $10 entry grants you free drinks and goes toward a good cause. Melanie Valentine, a friend of Respectable Street, was diagnosed with lymphedema and will partake in experimental surgery that could possibly improve her life.
The event will include music by Seizure Machine & Associates, LLC and Sada along with DJ sets by Oscar Zayas and Beat Thief, Inc. There will also be raffle prizes, and live art, including by Ruby Tesla and even Melanie herself.
