Us The Duo at House of Blues





Kick the weekend off with Us The Duo at House of Blues.

The pop folk duo's backstory reads like a modern-day fairytale: They met the set of a music video in Los Angeles and tied the knot one year later. The couple then uploaded six-second covers on their Vine account, where they amassed nearly 5 million followers, until they earned a record deal.

Since then, the couple has released two full-length albums, toured the country with Oprah Winfrey, and appeared on the national television shows "America's Got Talent" and "Good Morning America."

For a limited time, Groupon is offering standing room tickets for 21 percent off the general admission price. Use the link below to cop yours before they're gone.

Warrant at Proof Rooftop Lounge





Last but not least, wrap your weekend on a high note with Warrant.

The glam rock band spent the late '80s, '90s and early 2000s thrilling crowds around the world. Its 1989 single "Heaven" reached the number one spot in Rolling Stone and the number two spot on the Billboard Hot 100. And throughout its 30 year career, the band released multiple successful albums -- including its debut album "Dirty Rotten Filthy Stinking Rich," which was certified two times platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America, and its certified gold album "Dog Eat Dog."
