It's one of those weeks. My laptop broke, my vehicle broke and ultimately, my wallet's broke. Fortunately, some shows will cost a mere $5 to provide some cheer to get over these betrayals by machines (proof that you don't have to break the bank for a good time practically anytime: check out the price sorting function on our concert calendar). And 72 degrees today? Let's hope the forecast plays out, because all this talk of sunny Texas is making us jealous. At the very least, warm up this weekend with feel-good performances such as Gateway Men's Chorus with The B-52s' Fred Schneider. Read on for more recommendations this weekend, including Caspian, Deceased and Devon Allman's CD Release.
