Let's get out there and rock and roll this weekend! We've rounded up ten of our favorite events, none of which cost more than $10, and all of which promise a hell of a good time.Check out the Westword calendar for even more fun.  

ROLL | Heroes and Villains: Rise of the Villains
EXDO Event Center
9 p.m. Friday, free-$10

You'd have to be a nerd to root for the good guys: The villains might die first, but they do get to have all the fun. Put on your miscreant outfit or demigod costume, lace up the skates and prepare to have some fun. It's free if you hit ROLL before 10 p.m., or you can pay a couple of bucks to skate, dance, sing and do whatever heroes and villains do in the dark. 

The Art Students League of Denver Summer Art Market
Art Students League of Denver
10 a.m Saturday-Sunday, free

This annual market features classic art, contemporary work, photographs, prints and everything else imaginable for your viewing — and purchasing — pleasure, in art tents all over the streets. Also watch for artist demonstrations, live music and activities for the kids in their own zone. 

TheBigWonderful RiNo Farewell Party
TheBigWonderful
Noon Saturday, free-$5

TheBigWonderful debuted in RiNo a few years ago, but today marks the last bash at the original location. This farewell party features the usual craft and food trucks, as well as live music from Timber!, Brothers Gow and Dead Phish Orchestra. It's free before 2 p.m., so you'll have cash left to enjoy a couple of cocktails.

BrewGrass on South Pearl Street
Old South Pearl Street
Noon Saturday, $10

Fourteen local breweries will join forces with seven bluegrass bands for one day of fun in the sun. This marks the tenth year of the Old South Pearl party, and it only gets bigger every year. Silverplume kicks off the day, and the Yawpers close out the night, with plenty of other funky jammers peppering in the rest of the day.
