5. Hootstock 2015
3 p.m., Friday, March 13, at the Burrow, 777 Glades Rd., Boca Raton. No cover. Visit Facebook.
FAU's student run record label Hoot Wisdom will commemorate its fourth CompOWLation album on Friday. And Hoot knows its shit! This college once schooled the Alex half of X Factor winners Alex and Sierra and so will host nothing but the finest musical talent FAU has to offer.
Since the event is free, you can definitely fork over a measly $3.50 for the CD (this price is available with a discount code). The concert is taking place at the Burrow, aka the on-campus bar, and you'll have the pleasure of viewing performances by Fuzzhound, Beauty to the Moon, and Smith Sundy.

4. Flaunt Presents: Shotgun Betty
11 p.m., Thursday, March 12, at Respectable Street, 518 Clematis St., West Palm Beach. No cover. Visit Facebook.
Start out with a $2 PBR and one $3 Flaunt shot, and for only five bucks, you can start your night at Flaunt with a buzz. And the ROI (return on investment, in layman's terms) is a free concert by the high energy Americana act Shotgun Betty. Featuring DJs Marvelous Kendall, JJ Contramus, OZwaldus, and the newest addition to the crew, the Stoop Kids, this is a fantastically cheap way to start a weekend of partying.
3. St. Patrick's Day 2015 at The Irishmen
8:30 p.m March 13 to March 18 at the Irishmen, 1745 NW Second Ave., Boca Raton. No cover. Visit Facebook.
You don't have to wait next week for St. Paddy's Day. Instead, start the festivities by visiting Boca Raton's the Irishmen Friday night. Don your best green tee or, better yet, leprechaun costume, and check out Irish dancers, bagpipes and live music from Tom Petty tribute band Time with Tom. Wonder if they'll sing a mashup of "Won't Back Down" and Sam Smith's "Stay with Me."
