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

Sister Sparrow & the Dirty Birds @ Brooklyn Bowl
$12

Friday, January 31
Arleigh Kincheloe is the voice and presence of Sister Sparrow & the Dirty Birds, a band that makes soul sound modern and fresh. But the seven other male members of the band – which make up the “Dirty Birds” – put a great spin on the soulful sound as well, with live shows that demonstrate their mastery at musicianship. The band stemmed from a brother and sister team in the Catskill Mountains of New York, and now have turned into the eight piece rock n’ roll band that have had a pivotal year in their music career. Watch the perform Led Zeppelin IV from top to bottom at the Brooklyn Bowl on Friday for $12.

The Bayside Tigers @ le Poisson Rouge
$12

Friday, January 31
When they’re not off crushing the Valley (Valley High School), the Bayside Tigers are reviving all of the best things of the 90s with awesome music and “Saved by the Bell references.” You can catch the cover band at (le) Poisson Rouge for $12 on Friday, where they’ll be singing Ace of Base, Metallica, Weezer, the Gin Blossoms, and many more. Don’t miss your chance to relive your favorite decade this side of the millennium.

Man Man @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
$23.85

Saturday, February 1
Man Man is back on the road promoting their latest album, On Oni Pond. The Philly-based band will take their eccentric and oft-unpredictable act to one of Brooklyn’s finest venues, Music Hall of Williamsburg, for a show on Saturday which comes in at just $23.85 after fees. Not bad considering the group has gone from relative obscurity to being referenced on Anderson Cooper. Word of advice: bring a change of clothes to this one as their shows have been known to get very sweaty.

Break Science @ Bowery Ballroom
$18.50

Saturday, February 1
When you spend most of the time on tour, I bet it feels damn good to play a show in your hometown. The Brooklyn boys of Break Science must be looking forward to their performance at the Bowery Ballroom this weekend, mostly because they get to sleep in their bed afterword. Check out their EDM stylings – with trap, rap and jazz influences – this Saturday, and download their tunes for free at Pretty Lights Music.

Kobi Arad Band @ City Winery
$10

Sunday, February 2
If drinking beer and watching the Super Bowl isn’t appealing to you, perhaps drinking wine and listening to jazz music might. The Kobi Arad Band is aptly named after Kobi Arad, a pianist who once collaborated with Stevie Wonder. Their music is a self-described mix of nu jazz, modern classical music and hip-hop – an eclectic mix of sounds to likely pleasing an eclectic audience. You can see Kobi Arad Band at the City Winery on Sunday for $10.
