Your rent is paid, your metro card is replenished, and your liquor cabinet is stocked. The only problem is your bank account is now depleted. But it’s the freakin’ weekend! What to do? Don’t worry, SeatGeek has got you covered. Check below for our weekly list of live music $30 and under.

Pimps of Joytime @ Brooklyn Bowl

Friday, December 6 – $12
What do you get when you cross New Orleans funk with Brooklyn soul? The Pimps of Joytime, of course. The funk and afrobeat-inspired group have been around since 2007, making a name for themselves on the festival circuit with gigs at Bonnaroo, Outside Lands and All Good. Catch them at arguably one of the best venues in the NYC area, Brooklyn Bowl, for a ridiculously cheap price. Tickets are available at the door.

Flosstradamus @ Terminal 5

Friday, December 6 – $30
Hope you brought your swim trunks, cause you’re about to get wet. No, this isn’t a pool party: it’s a sweaty, sweaty trap show. Prepare yourself for thumping bass, synthesizers, and of course a plentiful amount of beat dropping from the duo Flosstradamus. Just stay away from that white powdery stuff. The only catch is you’ll have to schlep all the way to Terminal 5 for this one. Tickets are available at the door.

A$AP Ferg @ Irving Plaza

Friday, December 6 – $20
Not to be confused with A$AP Rocky, A$AP Ferg aka Donald Ferguson aka another member of the A$AP Mob collective, will be performing at Irving Plaza this evening. The 25-year-old rapper will likely be playing tunes from his album Trap Lord, but in this case trap does not mean bass and beat drops. According to Ferg, “Trapping means hustling.” Tickets are available at the door.

Luscious Jackson @ Webster Hall

Saturday, December 7 – $30
Reunited after a decade apart, Luscious Jackson will be at Webster Hall this Saturday performing songs from their critically acclaimed new album, Magic Hour. As part of the alt/indie-rock movement of the ’90s, LJ enjoyed success with hits like “Naked Eye,” “Here” and “Citysong.” This is only the second show the band has played on the East coast since reforming, so it’s likely to be filled with late 30-somethings and bittersweet nostalgia. The show is sold out, but you can get tickets through SeatGeek by clicking here.

Lucius @ Bowery Ballroom

Sunday, December 8 – $17
Despite only being around for about a year, Lucius has already garnered themselves the typical amount of praise reserved for all Brooklyn-based indie bands. Which is: a lot of praise. Hailed by the New York Times for their “luscious, luminous, lilting lullabies,” (but who will hail the Times for their use of alliteration?), you can check out the five-piece, chick-fronted band at the Bowery Ballroom on Sunday. The show is sold out, but you can get tickets through SeatGeek by clicking here.
