5. Black Fridays: Fort Lauderdale Homecoming
10 p.m., Friday, May 30, at Bar Stache 1920's Drinking Den, 109 SW Second Ave., Fort Lauderdale. Free for ladies, $5 for guys. Visit Facebook.
Rejoice! Black Fridays are back at their original home -- albeit a home with a new look. After moving south when Green Room became Stache, and with the closure of Miami's Vagabond, the party is back where it belongs. DJs Lorenzo DjKaos Fernandez and DJ LinderSMASH return along with promoter Johnny Veo. Think of this as a decadent, dark dessert after a long juice diet.

Country cutie Ciara Rae will be present at Round Up with some Southern flavor and her powerhouse vocals. It's more than just a performance though.

1. Sea & Space and Mylo Ranger at Funky Buddha Lounge and Brewery
9 p.m., Saturday, May 31, at Funky Buddha Lounge & Brewery, 2621 N. Federal Hwy., Boca Raton. 18 and older, $7 cover. Visit Facebook.
Boca bred Mylo Ranger and Sea & Space will be gracing Funky Buddha's stage this fine Saturday. Mylo Ranger is on the folky alternative side while Sea & Space blend electronic and acoustic sounds to create "signature floating liquid grooves." Sea & Space has also been in the studio, so most likely there will be a new spin on their jams or perhaps even some new songs altogether. The best news? You can get sonic satisfaction with a heavy dose of locally brewed beer.
