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

If you have $5: Celebrate your first weekend in D.C. with plenty of classic ’60s music at the Black Cat on Sept. 5. The party, called WAG, starts at 9:30 p.m. and happens the first Saturday of every month. Tickets are $5.

If you have $10: Do you love playing music with strangers? Then head over to the Washington Improv Theater Thursday night at 9 p.m. and take part in their Improv Jam session. WIT’s Web site asks you to “pay what you can,” but the suggested price is $10.

If you have $20: Check out chill L.A. trio, Autolux, at the Black Cat on Sept. 8. Tickets are $15.
