In the words of the modern-day philosopher Snoop Dog in his gospel “Gin ’n’ Juice,” people have their minds on their money and their money on their minds these days. Especially when it comes to entertainment. And the best deal this weekend is Cheap Fest IV, from Friday, Oct. 25, to Sunday, Oct. 27, at Strange Matter and Gallery5. The three-day musical event of here-and-now music-makers is a penny-pincher’s dream with more than 100 acts playing in the course of 72 hours. Do the math. With a suggested donation of $5 for each night and an average of 33 bands or performers at each show, that works out to 6.6 cents per act. At those prices, even the most miserly can be talked out of the house. And with acts from across the country with names like Champagne of Rats, Retarded Genius and Big Mouth Billy Bass scheduled, how can you lose? For the full schedule, visit gallery5arts.org and strangematterrva.com.
