Another weekend is here! Take these ten suggestions for weekend fun that won't break the bank. This list has something for most everyone, from poetry readings to music to nightclub debauchery. Looking for live music? Here's the weekend concert calendar.

ZOMG ROBOTS! at Urban (Friday)
Eagles don't fly, they tri-force. See eagles, hopefully doing something as awesome as this, on Sunday in Alton. For free!

This new dance night at Urban (3216 South Grand, home of the RFT's Best Bartender in '09), gets going at 10 p.m. Friday. There's no cover and it's open to night owls 21-and-older. DJ's 486 and Forensic play electro/indie music until 1 a.m., when the party will invariably move to one of South Grand's 3 a.m. nightspots. While the poster for the event has a very Steam-looking robot on it, bonus points go to anyone who shows up dressed like Tron Guy.

Stephen Prina: Modern Movie Pop
and Sean Landers: 1991-1994: Improbable History at  Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis (Friday)
"ZOMG ROBOTS!" is a new dance night at Urban on South Grand. Tron Guy probably likes hipsters, even though he shouldn't. The party starts at 10 p.m.

As a solo musician and member of the Red Krayola, Stephen Prina is renowned not only for his music but his art as well. Prina's Modern Movie Pop takes cues from his musical work, positing that the past and present are indistinguishable via a series of monochrome paintings on pull-down window blinds. Concurrently, artist Sean Landers presents an overview of his defining years. In 1991-1994: Improbable History, the artist's psyche is laid bare across multiple medias, including calendar diaries and performance videos. Both shows open with a free public reception from 7 to 9 p.m. Read the rest of Mark Fischer's preview here.
