Memorial Day weekend is rapidly approaching. So in case you didn't see our Memorial Day party list we put out this week (or can't afford it) we thought we'd give you some more — and cheaper — weekend options. Starting on Thursday, we have live art, crazy genres of music, and a 90's prom. Need we say more?
5. Artist Reception at RCB Fine Art Gallery
6 p.m. Thursday, May 21 at Rolando Chang Barrero Fine Art. 711 Lucerne Ave, Lake Worth. No cover. Visit Facebook.
Do you miss art basel? Too bad, you're going to have to wait till next year. In the meantime, get your fix with this event. The art show will be featuring new artists Diane Arrieta, Doreen Grasso, Javi du Art Gary Kroman, Uta Brauser and Gisela Pferdekamper.
4. Super Based Party at Anonymous Guitars
5 p.m. Friday, May 22 at Anonymous Guitars.10778 NW 53rd St, Sunrise. $5 cover. Visit Facebook.
A grand total of ten artists will be playing at Sunrise’s Anonymous Guitars this Friday. From trap artist Mad Mike to indie Years Apart to the “psychedelic rock n' roll” of Wilkes Oswald, there’s bound to be an artist that even the pickiest listener would like. But music ain’t the only thing going on here – check out live art from Xena Vargas and Kyle Rogers and stuff your face with food from Sarah Angee of Lonely Hearts Club.
3. Brown & Not Spices @ CRAFTI
10 p.m. Saturday, May 23, at Crafti Bar. 21 W Las Olas Blvd, Fort Lauderdale. No cover. Visit Facebook.
Saturday is National Punk Rock and Hip-hop Funk Day. Okay, it’s not. We lied. But Fort Lauderdale’s Crafti Bar is partying like it is with bands Brown & Not Spices. There will also be plenty of drink specials like $5 Sex on the Beach, Champagne, Long Island Iced Tea, Fireball and $3 bottled beer.
2. The 9th Ever '80's Prom
Sunday, May 24 at Respectable Street. 518 Clematis St, West Palm Beach. No cover. Visit Facebook.
There has never been a better time to raid your parents’ closet. It’s Respectable Street’s ninth ever 80’s prom, and you‘ll need plenty of bangles and obnoxiously loud shoulder pad dresses to chose from. With spiked punch all night and the opportunity to recreate cheesy prom pics, this will be way better than your actual high school prom. There will also be prizes for the best dressed Prom King and Queen.
1. Spred The Dub at Bostons On The Beach
9 p.m. Friday, May 22, at Bostons On The Beach. 40 S Ocean Blvd, Delray Beach No cover. Visit Facebook.
Reggae music and the beach are two things that are just meant to go together. And lucky for you, Spred the Dub is playing at Bostons on the Beach this Friday, and you can watch for the low, low price of zero dollars.
