Work is a drag and Spotify can only spice it up so much. Here are a few of the best shows happening this weekend in our fine city. Who will you be seeing?

To the untrained eye, this may appear to be a show aimed at getting a bunch of OSU fans really wasted. In reality, this is an event put on by a¬†student organization at Ohio State that advocates for sustainable living through the arts, especially music. There is a whole bill of Ohio artists slated to play¬†including Zoo Trippin’ and Fortune Orange. The only catch is you have to unplug all appliances and turn off your lights so you can help black out Columbus.

Hipo Campus

Thursday, April 6

|Newport Music Hall, $17-20
