Five Best Music-Related Events Under $5 This Weekend

At last! This short week's come to a close, and as we inch further away from Summer and deeper into the Fall, we'll take any chance we get to cling to our permanent vacation mindset.

This doesn't mean hangin' out and kicking it at home. Oh, no! Sure, you might be a little low on cash from the past week's string of holiday festivities, but that's no excuse to be boring.

We've got you covered with a list of the five best ways you can get out this weekend, party, and enjoy some tunes in your own 'hood. All for $5 or less!

You can thank us later.
