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

How to Dress Well @ Rough Trade NYC
$17

Friday, March 21
The music of Tom Krell’s brainchild – How to Dress Well – is hard to classify. At some moments it has traces of Justin Timberlake at his poppy-est best, and other moments it’s like listening to Jeff Buckley’s saddest song on repeat (and we all know how that ended). With such soulful, sexy, sad music, this concert is not to be missed. Get tickets here.

Soulive @ Brooklyn Bowl
$20

Friday, March 21
This weekend rounds out the last two shows of Bowlive – Soulive’s annual residency at Brooklyn Bowl. Tonight will feature Marco Benevento on the ol’ ivories, as well as Roosevelt Collier, The Shady Horns and Sonya Kitchell. Limited admission at doors, so get there early.

Cassian @ Glasslands Gallery
$10

Friday, March 21
Looking for some good, old fashioned electro dance beats? Look no further than Cassian, an Aussie DJ whose spent the last few years touring his music around the world. Glasslands will essentially turn into a rave tonight, so bring your glow-sticks and E. Lots and lots of E. Get tickets here.

Soulive @ Brooklyn Bowl
20$

Saturday, March 22
Another year, another Bowlive is coming to an end. Finishing their residency in style, Soulive has enlisted the help of Bill Evans, The Shady Horns, and Wolf! ft. Scott Metzger. As usual, limited tickets are available at the door so get there early! This one will be a total blowout.

Snarky Puppy @ Irving Plaza
$28

Saturday, March 22
Admittedly, we may have a bit of an affinity for large, instrumental jazz bands. But that’s only because they’re so fun live! And for just under $30 bucks, you can check out Brooklyn’s pride and joy, Snarky Puppy, when they play at Irving Plaza on Saturday. They also recently won a Grammy so you know… kind of a big deal. Get tickets here.

Swift Technique @ Rockwood Music Hall
FREE

Friday, March 21
You know when you had a really sh*tty week, and you’re just like “man I wanna’ get drunk and dance tonight.” Cut to five hours later when your body is pressed up against a stage with an awkward amount of sweat dripping down your forehead. That’s Swift Technique, in a nutshell. Free, but bring money for tips.

The World of Drum & Bass @ SRB Brooklyn
$25

Saturday, March 22
When the event page for something has official hours listed as “open from 10pm till Very Late,” you know you’re in for a night filled with antics and a morning filled with regret. And, if you’re in your 20s living in NYC and going to a drum and bass dance party, that’s likely the goal anyway. Get tickets here.

Rough Francis @ The Grand Victory
$10

Sunday, March 23
Go login to your parents’ Netflix account, head to the documentary section, and put on “A Band Called Death.” Then go see Rough Francis live at The Grand Victory on Sunday. You’re welcome. (Get tickets here.)

New Bums @ Baby’s All Right
$10

Sunday, March 23
With their album recently receiving a 7.6 (out of 10) on Pitchfork, the New Bums seem to be accomplishing the mighty task of creating innovative and intriguing music with nothing but their voices and acoustic guitars. Both staples in the folk scene, the duo is getting a lot of attention lately. And you can see them at Baby’s All Right for just 10 smackers this Sunday. Get tickets here.
