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

Robin Thicke / Jessie J @ The Theatre at MSG
$14

Friday, March 7
You guys – Robin Thicke is playing at The Theater @ Madison Square Garden tonight and tickets are wicked cheap. Like, under $20 cheap. Perhaps its the rumors of marital indiscretion that are turning fans away, perhaps it’s because anybody under the age of 30 only knows his song “Blurred Lines.” Either way, who cares? Get it while the gettins’ good. Get tickets here.

Who’s Bad: The Ultimate Michael Jackson Tribute Band @ Brooklyn Bowl
$12

Friday, March 7
It’s not just any Michael Jackson tribute band, it is the Michael Jackson tribute band. The fellas of Who’s Bad have been selling out large-scale venues in the UK and US for over a decade, and are currently in the middle of a massive tour around the U.S. Check them out at Brooklyn Bowl tonight, limited tickets available at the door.

The Rubberbandits @ Mercury Lounge
$20

Friday, March 7
As part of the Craic Festival – New York’s premiere Irish film & music festy – The Rubberbandits will take the stage at the Mercury Lounge this evening. Join the comedy hip-hop duo as they perform famous tunes like “Black Man,” “Horse Outside” and “I Like to Shift Girls.” Get tickets here.

RAQ / Fikus @ Gramercy Theatre
$22

Friday, March 7
OK – with fees this ticket comes to $32. But we couldn’t not include a RAQ and Fikus show on this list. RAQ – a progressive rock band nestled deep within the jam band culture. And Fikus, the yin to RAQ’s yang, with electronic beats and funky rock n’ roll. Here, I’ll even give you the two bucks. Get tickets here.

The Battle of Los Angeles @ SRB Brooklyn
$10

Friday, March 7
Pulling their name from the classic 1999 album, The Battle of Los Angeles is one of the top Rage Against the Machine tribute bands around. They’ll perform at SRB Brooklyn alongside Soundgarden, Pantera, Tool and Slayer cover bands. Tickets are available at the door – $10 before 10pm, $15 thereafter.

We Were Promised Jetpacks @ Webster Hall
$20

Saturday, March 8
Indie-rockers We Were Promised Jetpacks are in the middle of a small U.S. tour, culminating in a SXSW showcase on May 14. While we’d all love to escape to the warmth of Texas to check out this group of dreamy Scots, it might make more sense to catch their Webster Hall show this Saturday. Get tickets here.

Traxx / Powell / Torn Hawk @ Baby’s All Right
$15

Saturday, March 8
Baby’s All Right is generally known for playing host to a slew of alternative rock bands, but that’s all about to change on Saturday. Now that 285 Kent is gone, it seems the club is ushering in more electronic/DJ-based acts, such as Traxx, Torn Hawk and Powell, who appear on a triple bill this Saturday. Get tickets here.

Cibo Matto @ Brooklyn Bowl
$20

Saturday, March 8
While you might not have heard of Cibo Matto, the fact that they’re playing at Brooklyn Bowl this Saturday is kind of a big deal. After achieving success in the U.S. through appearing on various TV and film soundtracks in the ’90s and early ’00s, the underground duo disbanded in 2002. After reuniting in 2011 for a benefit concert, Yuka Honda and Miho Hatori decided to give it another go-round, resulting in a new album and a full blown tour. And here we are. Limited tickets at the door, so don’t be late.

Hannibal Buress @ Knitting Factory Brooklyn
FREE

Sunday, March 9
Hannibal Buress performs at the front room of the Knitting Factory every Sunday night, so we’re not sure why it took us so long to include in this article. Not only is the 31-year-old standup comedian hilarious (writing credits include 30 Rock and SNL), but he’s known to bring “unannounced guests” along with him: Chris Rock, Robin Williams, Sarah Silverman, etc. Any of those ring a bell? Entry is free on first come first serve basis.

Antibalas @ S.O.B.’s
$22

Sunday, March 9
Antibalas is an extremely accomplished afrobeat band, playing shows around the world and throughout their hometown of NYC since 1998. In recent years they’ve made a name for themselves in mainstream media through appearances on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and NPR’s Tiny Desk Series, and most recently guitarist Luke O’Malley will join The Roots as the Tonight Show house band. With a name that means “bulletproof” in Spanish, their success should come as no surprise. Get tickets here.
