10 Things to Do for $10 in Denver This Weekend (8 Free!), January 23-25

Hard to believe that we're already in the fourth weekend of the new year. Hopefully everyone is keeping up with their resolutions, but if you're not there's not a lot going on this weekend that will be bad for your health or hard on your finances. Lose your voice to some competitive karaoke, explore frigid winter wonderlands and laugh at some things that'll make you cringe. We love when you leave us comments about events we missed, and don't forget to check out the Westword calendar for more.

Black Sheep Fridays: Devo v. Bowie Karaoke at Museum of Contemporary Art Denver (Friday, $5) Black Sheep Fridays are finally back, and they are kicking it off with a glam-versus-new wave grudge match. A karaoke competition pitting "Mongoloid" versus "Queen Bitch" and "Gates of Steel" against "Rock 'n' Roll Suicide." The fate of these two superstars of rock is inside of you, so hop on stage and belt it out.

Clue: The Musical at Armory Performance Art Center (Friday-Saturday, $10) Come check out this classic and crazy who done it musical. Was it Colonel Mustard in the library or Professor Plum with a candlestick? It remains to be be seen, but you'll only find out if you show up. Get $10 tickets here.

rePOPulated: Contemporary Perspectives on Pop Art at Arvada Center for the Arts & Humanities (Friday-Saturday, free) Pop art is very pleasing to the eye, usually because it takes something we're already familiar with, and puts a new spin on it. And yes, there will be a handful of classic pieces from Warhol, Lichtenstein and others, but there will be plenty of new works from local pop artists to captivate your viewing pleasure. Art of Winter at Larimer Square (Friday-Sunday, free) Hop into the upcycled winter wonderland happening downtown this weekend. Artists have repurposed skis and snowboards into works of art for all to come and admire and be inspired.
