Here are ten wallet-friendly music events this weekend around South Florida.
Ex Norwegian Plays Propaganda in Lake Worth Tonight
Tonight, Friday, June 5
*Atlanta-based power-pop-rock trio Last November plays at Transit Lounge. Cover information is kind of murky but it should be cheap or even free. Click here for a free Last November MP3 and more details about the show.
*A group of local indie-type staples plays at Flamingo Fridays at PS14: Astari Nite, Old Wives Tale, and Radioboxer, plus a DJ set by Otto von Schirach... For only $5! Click here for a free Astari Nite MP3, and click here for one from Radioboxer.
*Next door to PS, the Vagabond presents two new electronic pop acts from Miami: Palm Trees and Jesp (that's the Outereach guys' new side project). Cover is always free before midnight, and only $5 after. Click here to visit the Vagabond's web site, and Palm Trees' MySpace page.
*One of Miami's best new rock bands, Ex Norwegian, plays one of Palm Beach County's best new rock venues, Propaganda in Lake Worth. It's no secret I'm a fan of these guys' updated classic power-pop. Click here for full details about the show, which is just $5.
*Country-folk-pop-acoustic duo Friction Farm plays soothing sounds at a coffeehouse -- Aroma Coffee Bar in Deerfield Beach. How boho! The show is only $5. Click here for details.
