$5 – $10 – $20: An entertainment guide for the cash-strapped college student

If you have $5

This weekend the Feminist Majority Leadership Alliance, Program Board, and the SA are hosting GW’s annual performance of the Vagina Monologues in the Jack Morton Auditorium (SMPA building at 21st & H streets, N.W.). If you only have $5 to your name, borrow $2 from a friend (tell them it’s for vaginas) and catch one of the performances Thursday, Friday or Saturday at 8:00 pm. All proceeds from the show benefit women’s charities.

If you have $10

What happens when saxophones meet rap and jazz meets funk? To find out, catch GW jazz-funk-hip-hop extraordinaires Hello Society as they headline at the Rock and Roll Hotel (1353 H St. N.E.) tonight (Thursday, Feb 21) at 8:30 pm. Special guest performances and new songs are sure to delight fans, and opening guests The London Souls of New York (featuring former GW student Tash Neal on guitar and vocals) and Bottles/Cans will start the night off right.

If you have $20

Head over to the State Theater (Falls Church, Va.) to catch Pink Floyd cover band, The Machine, on Saturday at 9:15 p.m. Having played to thousands of people at Bonnaroo, Musikfest and with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, The Machine has been heralded as America’s premiere live Pink Floyd experience, hailed by Rolling Stone magazine for their “chilling accuracy” along with a show full of multi-media and state-of-the-art lighting. Tickets are $15 in advance, $18 at the door.
