Who: The Blue Heavy

Where: Preservation Pub

When: 10 p.m.

Price: N/A (ages 21 and over)

Victoria's Take: The Blue Heavy is a band composed of UT students with old school influences. Born and raised in Tennessee, the band blends the sounds of Memphis' Stax and '60s rock, a mixture that creates a powerful funk/rock vibe. The band performs classic covers as well as original tracks. Check out their track, "Brother," on the band's website, theblueheavy.com. You won't be disappointed.

What: Vol Night Long

Where: TRECS

When: 10 p.m. to 2 a.m.

Price: Free

Victoria's Take: All night long ... ahem, I meant to say Vol Night Long. While this event wasn't necessarily inspired by Eddie Murphy's hit '80s jam, the event promises the same — a party. The UT tradition gives students access to games, free refreshments and other entertainment into the a.m. So bring your friends, have them bring their friends and y'all can be friends, or something like that. It's a free party, why not go?

When: 6 p.m.

Where: Market Square

Price: Free

Melodi's Take: Now that the weather is warming up and Market Square isn't as much of a hassle to get to, why not enjoy a nice outdoor concert with a cutie? Celebrate the upcoming season and St. Patrick's day with this free, outdoor concert with local bands that are sure to please any leprechaun or green-wearing mortal. Just make sure you don't get pinched!

Who/What: The ProtomenWhen: 8 p.m.

Where: NV Nightclub (ages 18+)

Price: $10

Melodi's Take: The Old City guarantees a good time, and this concert taking place at the NV Nightclub is sure to bring joy to many students eager for spring break. The Protomen, originally from Nashville, are influenced by video game music and rock-opera revival. Their music combines a little bit of everything and produces a cool, unique sound that doesn't compare to other artists topping the charts these days. Start spring break a little early and opt for a jamming Sunday night.
