Five Things to Do Under $5 This Weekend
5. Back to School Party at Pawn Shop
8 p.m., Friday, August 22, at Pawn Shop, 219 Clematis St., West Palm Beach. No cover. Visit Facebook.
Just because you graduated doesn't mean you're too old to go back to school. West Palm's Pawn Shop celebrates the beginning of the school year with a nerds versus school girls party, so you better think twice before acting a bully.
Ladies drink free all night long, DJ Reflex and R1 will have the jamz category covered, and pigtails, glasses, and suspenders will be your simple attire for the evening.
4. Summer Soundtrack: Phil Barnes & Carly Jo Jackson
8 p.m., Thursday, August 21, at a secret location in Fort Lauderdale. No cover. Visit Facebook.
Exposed PR and C&I Studios are known for hosting unconventional and fun events. This year's Summer Soundtrack is no exception. Promoting everything but the location, this concert series features open bar booze from Blue Nun Wines, Hard Rock Energy, and Naked Turtle Rum as well as popsicles from Pop Lab.
Local artists like -kids- have performed, and this week at the third edition of Summer Soundtrack, Phil Barnes and Carly Jo Jackson will take the unknown stage. RSVP today to this exclusive party tonight to firstname.lastname@example.org. Remember, there are only 100 spots available so get on it! We all have smart phones for crying out loud. And although tonight seems to have already filled up, there's always next week's Summer Soundtrack.
3. Punk Rock Saturday Night
10 p.m., Saturday, August 23, at the Monterey Club, 2608 S. Federal Hwy., Fort Lauderdale. $5 cover. Visit Facebook.
It seems like this summer, Fort Lauderdale's played host to way more local punk shows than usual. And we're not complaining. The Monterey Club is on the list of spots to hear live punk. This Saturday is no different, you can hear music by DJ Skidmark, the Gazms, Simple Principles, and FWA for only 5 bucks.
2. Spank Sunday at Sandbar Fort Lauderdale

Bend over for a nice musical spanking at this Sunday's Sandbar party. Sounds by Gabriel Ben and Ed Whitty and visuals by Kenn Mathews from Twisted Cherry Productions will provide the backdrop for a wild electronica weekend-ender. And a bit of advice?

1. Buddha Comedy Presents Flip Shultz
7 p.m., Sunday, August 24, at Funky Buddha Lounge & Brewery, 2621 N. Federal Hwy., Boca Raton. $5 cover, 18 and older. Visit Facebook.
Get ready to get a great abs workout this Sunday and not by exercising in your typical fashion. Flip Shultz will get those bellies shaking and tightening by performing at Boca's famous Funky Buddha Brewery.
