Broke in NYC? You’re not alone. Check out our guide to this weekend’s best concerts. All $30 and under.

Bustle in Your Hedgerow @ Brooklyn Bowl
$15

Friday, February 7
If there’s a bustle in your hedgerow, don’t be alarmed now. That’s just Marco Benevento, Joe Russo, Dave Dreiwitz and Scott Metzger paying homage to the one and only Led Zeppelin. Watch the supergroup put new life into old Zep’ songs at everybody’s favorite bowling alley+music venue hybrid, Brooklyn Bowl. At only $15 a ticket, this show is a steal. Get tickets here.

The Mess Around @ The Rock Shop
$5

Friday, February 7
Nothing is more fun than a funk dance party. Nothing. Now take a funk dance party and place it inside Park Slope’s finest drinking/gaming/entertainment establishment and you get First Friday at The Rock Shop. For only $5 you can boogie to the musical stylings of The Mess Around plus “special guest DJs.” The Rock Shop also boasts flat screen TVs for sports enthusiasts, a pool table and a roof deck. And, once you’ve boogied ’till you just can’t boogie no more, check out their full food menu to satiate your appetite.

Lord Huron / Night Beds / Night Moves @ Terminal 5
$25

Friday, February 7
OK – before you go making yourself sound stupid in front of your hipster friends by referring to Lord Huron as a him – know that the Michigan-based band is comprised of five strapping young men. Now that we have that out of the way: the indie-folk enthusiasts are currently on tour and headed to every New Yorker’s most cherished music hall, Terminal 5 (*eye roll*). Regardless of your thoughts on T5, $25 bucks to check them out with tour-mates Night Moves and Night Beds is a pretty good deal. Get tickets here.

The Big Takeover / New York Funk Exchange @ Knitting Factory (BK)
$10

Friday, February 7
How much funk is too much funk? Answer: None. There is never enough funk. And for a cool Alexander Hamilton, you can check out The Big Takeover and the New York Funk Exchange at Brooklyn’s Knitting Factory on Friday. As if you needed an excuse to check out two female-fronted funk bands, anyway. Get tickets here.

Screaming Females @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
$14

Saturday, February 8
Don’t be fooled by the name – this is not a band of screaming females. In fact, there’s only one female in the trio that hails from New Brunswick, NJ, but she sure can howl. Check out the high-energy triad of punk rockers at the Music Hall of Williamsburg this weekend, during part two of the Don Giovanni Records Showcase Night. Get tickets here.

The Stepkids @ Brooklyn Bowl
$8

Saturday, February 9
Looking to beat the winter blues? Perhaps you need a “psychedelic soul experience” accompanied by kaleidoscopic projections, and the option to also throw a few bowling balls. If that mental journey sounds like one you’re interesting in taking, then you should probably go see The Stepkids on Saturday at Brooklyn Bowl. And if it’s not, then we question your judgment as a human being. Get tickets here.

Murder City Devils / Tweens / Alex English @ Webster Hall
$25

Saturday, February 8
Seattle, where the Murder City Devils are from, is known for several things (Seahawks, Starbucks, sappy rom-coms), but being a city filled with murder isn’t one of them. You can be rest assured that the garage punk band will deliver nothing but awesome music on Saturday at East Village’s famed Webster Hall. Joined by Tweens and Alex English, it’s sure to be a good time. Get tickets here.

Cerebral Ballzy / Black Sheep @ The Gramercy Theatre
$14

Sunday, February 9
With a name as ballsy as, well, Cerebral Ballzy, of course this Brooklyn-based band would be classified as punk rock. Not too punk rock to prevent them from recently signing to a major label (Julian Casablancas’ Cult Records), but hey we all gotta’ eat. Check them out at Gramercy Theatre alongside the Queens-based hip-hop group Black Sheep for just $14. Get tickets here.

Gondola @ Ace Hotel
FREE

Sunday, February 9
Gondola, the five-piece band from BK, has sounds reminiscent of Noah and the Whale and The Head and The Heart. Check out their sweet indie stylings when they perform at the Ace Hotel on Sunday. Whether you’re familiar with these dudes or are feeling musically adventurous, you really can’t go wrong with a free concert.

Kool A.D. @ S.O.B.’s
$12

Sunday, February 9
God, we miss Das Racist. While nothing can quite compare to the lyrical flow of frontmen Kool A.D. and Heems, checking out Victor Vasquez – aka Kool himself – is a close second. He’ll be performing at S.O.B.‘s for their Hot Jazz Review on Sunday, alongside Mr. Muthafuckin eXquire, Meyhem Lauren and Lakutis. Get your tickets here.
