I'm no mathemagician or anything, but that seems like a pretty cheap per-band rate. Support local music! (DH)

Funk Fest 9 w/ Funky Butt Brass Band, Big Brother Thunder & the Master Blasters, The People's Key, Al Holiday & the East Side Rhythm Band, The Service, Naked Rock Fight, The Provels, Big Chief @ Broadway Oyster Bar 8 p.m. | $10 The per-band rate here is slightly more expensive (but still dirt cheap), but the funk factor is cranked up considerably. Worth it! (DH)

An Under Cover Weekend continues through Saturday, but before that, check out International Cassette Store Day at Music Record Shop or the Brothers Lazaroff's annual Vintage Vinyl block party. Perfect People also releases a new record with two separate shows in one night.
