4. January Art Walk with Gears & Gals

6 p.m. Saturday, January 31, at C&I Studios, 541 NW First Ave., Fort Lauderdale. No cover. Visit Facebook.

C&I Studios' monthly art walk is spicing things up with good-looking cars and even better-looking ladies. Guests will think they've been transported to the 1950s with the revving engines of vintage cars and pinup gals strutting their stuff.

Featuring models from Montce Swim & Face2Face Studios, it's safe to say that the first art walk of 2015 is going to be sexy. Don't forget to stuff your face thanks to the various food trucks outside -- you may not look like the girls after you chow, but hey, at least your tummy'll be happy.

3. Bonnie Riot Backbone Release Party (1 of 3)

It'll be an indie-themed night at Radio-Active Records this Thursday thanks to Bonnie Riot and Sur Back. The cause for celebration is Bonnie Riot's release of the album Backbone. The party continues on Friday night at Gramps in Miami and Propaganda in Lake Worth on Saturday. In addition, there will also be enough free pizza to feed Jennifer Lawrence and guests.
