Five Best Music Events in South Florida This Week

Counting down the hours until Friday even though it's only Tuesday?

Yeah, we've all been there.

While you can't make the next four days disappear as quickly as the #KylieJennerLipChallenge faded into obscurity, there is one thing that will make the next 96 hours fly by: music. 

But not just any music — we're talking about the best tuneage across South Florida. So get your lips out of that suction cup and hit up this week's five best music events. We guarantee they won't leave you looking like a fish that OD'd on collagen. 

Of Mice & Men. 
We're all part of a "Broken Generation." That's why Orange County's metalcore crew, Of Mice & Men want you to put down those damned cellphones. As guitarist Phil Manansala told New Times in a recent interview, the Southern Cali rock band wants you to "put aside [your] devices and live in the real world." Or in the Of Mice & Men world for the night, at least.
