5. First Fridays Street Party
6 p.m., Saturday, November 8, at America's Backyard, 100 SW Third Ave., Fort Lauderdale. Visit Facebook.
For those who want their kids to get out of the house and enjoy some human interaction and cultural stimulation, we've got an event for you.
America's Backyard will host its First Fridays Street Festival with artists, food trucks, crafters, and live music from KISS Country.
Be nice and bring the whole crew. If they get annoying, just grit your teeth and remember that hours later, America's Backyard will transform into a land of debauchery, and you can drink your stress away on a tiny budget. No worries if you miss this week, this shindig happens the first Friday of every month.
4. Cans & Bands Benefit Show
8 p.m., Friday, November 7, at Propaganda, 6 S. J St., Lake Worth, $5 or 3 cans. Visit Facebook.
Lavola has long been a mainstay in our South Florida music scene. Though members moved a bit north to Orlando, frontman Julian Cires is still hosting the second annual Cans & Bands benefit show at Propaganda in Lake Worth.
Proceeds will benefit the Palm Beach County Food Bank which works to help feed hungry children and families in the area. Other bands taking the stage for a good cause include melodic punk band Howling Winds, post-hardcore rockers the Thieving Hand, and the electronica experimenters Astrea Corporation.
