On Budget: Free concerts

The Skabbs

L.A. punks The Skabbs were born in the mid-’70s but disbanded after their singer died early in the band’s career. Thirty years later, they reunited, and will be making up for lost time at 10 p.m. today at the Double Down Saloon, 4640 Paradise Road. The show is free; call 791-5775.

Empire Records

“Empire Records” was a crappy coming-of-age movie from the mid-’90s, but the alt-rock tribute act of the same name represents that era in much more convincing fashion at 9 p.m. Saturday at Vinyl at the Hard Rock Hotel, 4455 Paradise Road. The show is free; call 693-5000.
