You name it, we’ve got it: art, film, puppets and even a parade. Save your hard-earned dough for holiday travels because you won’t need it for this lineup. And while you’re here, check out the Clubland calendar for your budget-friendly music events.
Hang in there. It’s almost the weekend! And since it’s officially autumn, we’ve included a few outdoor activities to celebrate the season; because it might finally be time to wake up early and get outside even if you don’t have to. But don’t worry, there’s still plenty of budget-friendly music and art to go around.
Yes, it’s that time again. Make your weekend plans. You’re probably kicking things off with the last Downtown After Five of the season (Underhill Rose — the lovely ladies pictured here — along with Larry Keel & Natural Bridge, Lexington Ave., 5 p.m., free music, need I say more?) — here are some more options to fill in your entertainment calendar without draining your wallet.
More budget-friendly shows coming later this week. Know of others ($5 and under)? Please add them in the comments field!
A few big, free events take place this weekend: The final installment of Shindig on the Green for this season happens Saturday evening. LAAFF runs all day on Sunday and The Asheville Symphony Orchestra performs a free concert on Park Square Park on Monday. See this weeks Xpress for details on those, and check out some of these other free or under $5 shows.
This week it’s theatre, art and music. Know of more events that cost $5 or less? Add them in the comments field.
This weekend’s top 10 includes Asheville’s Broomstars (pictured) playing at MoDaddy’s with Ween drummer Claude Coleman Jr. and his band Amandla. That’s Saturday, but Thursday and Friday bring more music, art and author events (including a muralist just published by Punk Planet).
Art openings, outdoor music, book events, authors, music for dining, music for drinking, a CD release and the Summer Music in Flat Rock kick off. And more. All free or budget-priced.
Before and after all the free music going down at the Mountain Sports Festival, check out some of these other free and cheap events, from art openings to country rock.
Another weekend is upon us. Lots to do, all at budget prices. Or even better, free!
This week’s roundup starts with Thursday, April 1, but it’s no joke. A down-right exhausting list of budget-priced shows awaits your perusal. Read on!
There’s a good hour of extra daylight each night this weekend, and the vernal equinox (that’s the start of spring) is at the stroke of midnight on Saturday. Need any more reason to get out of the house and celebrate a bit? How about a weekend’s worth of entertainment, with no cover charge over $5.
A music-filled (hopefully not snow-filled) weekend is on the horizon with an eclectic range of offerings. A DJ-infused art opening, a free show at the UNCA Grotto, piano players, Gypsy jazz, AC/DC covers, one man bands and a group of teen rockers who have already held their own with Johnny Winter. And it’s all $5 or less.
More $5 and under events sure to keep you busy this weekend.
Beyond the snarl of Bele Chere’s festival crowds and hawkers, what sort of free or low-cost happenings can be found?
Is it just me, or does a weekend that starts with a free festival seem somehow more auspicious than those weekends that don’t? (Even if you’re not a fan of this Friday’s Downtown After Five lineup, you can get your money’s worth—$0—in people-watching alone.) Beyond that, there’s free theater, a CD release and some of the area’s best-loved bands—including the reunion of Pure, on hiatus for the past 18 years. All for five bucks or less.
Plenty of live music, plus bad movies, street festivals, art openings and more. It’s all $5 or cheaper.
Don’t have much money? No problem, the following list means you can spend your nickels and dimes on a six-pack and a watermelon and still have enough to check out a band or three.
This weekend is shaping up to be so action-packed and event-heavy that we had to add extra bonus Tuesday material. Friday starts with Downtown After 5; there’s also free reggae, free indie-jazz, free Shakespeare and free hula-hooping.
By the time the weekend rolls around, you’ll probably have spent your cash on Phish or the Beastie Boys. Or maybe you’re saving up for a long weekend at the beach. Whatever. Here’s the Shoestring lowdown of nearly everything you can do (legally) for five bucks or less.
There’s a little something for everything in this roundup, from fiction readings and Civil War reenactments to modern dance and indie-pop.
