This is your one-stop shop for all the weekend's happenings, including concerts, movies and sporting events throughout South Florida.
A who's who of 1980s musical acts is coming to Boca Raton for the 2017 LOTOS Music Festival. Boy George headlines the list of performers, who include the Romantics, Miami-formed Expose, Katrina Leskanich of Katrina and the Waves, Nu Shooz, and Clive Farrington and Andrew Mann, original vocalists of the band When in Rome.
The concert begins Friday at 7 p.m. at the Mizner Park Amphitheater.
Muse and Thirty Seconds to Mars will rock the Perfect Vodka Amphitheatre in West Palm Beach the next evening.
Ridley Scott is back at the helm for the newest installment of the space horror franchise "Alien." Scott directed the original movie, released in 1979, and its first prequel, 2012's "Prometheus."
"Alien: Covenant" promises more of the H.R. Giger-inspired space creature that was absent from its predecessor (except for a cameo at the end).
